http://www.downloadsquad.com – Filed under: Security, Utilities, VideoAbout 10 years ago I bought an incredibly expensive Samsung X10 laptop. It was one of the first powerful Centrino 'ultra lights', and along with the Sony Vaio range it cost a stupid amount of money -- but it rocked! It was fast, it could run games, and it only weighed 2 pounds! And it had a fingerprint scanner. 'Ooooh!' Yeah, it was slick, it was silver and fast -- but really, I'd just paid $2500 for a damn fingerprint scanner and boy did I feel cheated. I thought I'd get all the girls with that thing: 'Hey, babe, look, I can just swipe my finger across...' But no, no cigar. I don't even know why consumer products have biometric scanners -- in the office environment maybe, but at home? Anyway! The actual news: you can now use your face to log onto your computer with KeyLemon. Sit down in front of your computer and voila: logged in! Firefox users will be able to log into social networks using their face, too. It's not just a one-time login either: KeyLemon keeps scanning whoever's in front of the computer, and if your face changes it logs you out! Also, on the off-chance that your laptop gets stolen, KeyLemon will continue to take photos of whoever's using it. Don't forget your password though -- what if you undergo plastic surgery and can't login?
