Unbelievable: a mouse that takes fingerprints

Too much. This eWeek report says a company called APC has just introduced a USB optical mouse that reads fingerprints and works with a password system for Windows systems.

If you worry about security for transactions over the Internet (maybe your bank account, your web-based email) you can spend $59 and get the Biometric Mouse Password Manager. Of course, you have to remember to carry it with you but–here’s the cool part–the writer says the mouse automatically logs you in to these sites. Makes it simple and fast–especially if you have complicated passwords. All you do is lay your thumb on it and it does the rest. Check it out.
