Eikon Digital Privacy Manager : No need to remember passwords any longer

These days, most of us have to login into our various webmail accounts, online forums, social networking sites, Flickr and Facebook accounts and things of the sort. And remembering a bunch of passwords can be quite a pain, increasing exponentially with the number of sites that you use everyday. You can't just leave them on a text file on your Windows Desktop, making it accessible to all and neither can you write it down in a small piece of paper which might easily get lost. The answer to this problem is the Eikon Digital Privacy Manager.

The Eikon Digital Privacy Manager provides a fingerprint authentication security solution thanks to the Eikon USB peripheral fingerprint reader coupled with the Protector Suite QL software. This solution enables you to retrofit this biometric authentication system onto an existing computer, greatly simplifying the different aspects of PC usage at the swipe of a finger. No longer do you need to cram your brain with a whole bunch of passwords when your humble fingerprint is enough to do the job. The Plug and Play device is very handy, but not so handy is the price, currently retailing for US$40.

USB Cooler : Now you don't have to leave your desk for a drink!

Great news for PC addicts like me. The USB Beverage Chiller will now keep your drink cold while you're at your computer. At US$29 apiece, the bargain looks worth the price with its cool looks, suitable on any desktop. With the USB Beverage Chiller at your side, you can keep your drink chilled and stay at your computer longer. This means greater work or gaming productivity - and who doesn't enjoy increasing their efficiency.

This 'cool' chiller attains a temperature of 45 degrees Fahrenheit or 7.22 degrees Celsius (perfect temperature for helping keep your beverage cool) in a matter of seconds so there is no waiting time involved! Hmm, not a bad idea since it looks to come into handy quite often and for me that would translate into: every single day!
