Written by IT News on 3:07 AM

Although the new passports may be more difficult to counterfeit, fingerprint identification is not soundproof, precedents exist for the false positive, security researchers maintain.

Physical look at a person who can reveal more visual signals, such as adjustments or sweating, which gives an indication of agitation or anxiety, and can give people something.

People who do not have any fingerprints on the basis of disability or otherwise, because of their daily work, they will be able to travel with temporary passports with biometric identification, which will be valid for 12 months.

According to the flash memory maker, the new SSD solutions for netbook computer systems will be aggressively priced, enabling them to be used in POS terminals, printers, ATMs and other applications that require a reliable storage solution.

IDC initially projected that worldwide netbook sales would reach nine million units by 2012, however, that number has grown to 41 million, while this year 11 million netbooks are expected to be sold worldwide.

“SanDisk’s Gen 2 pSSD drives have the best combination of capacity, performance, weight, pricing and power advantages to really excite designers, manufacturers and users of netbooks,” said Richard Brown, VP of Marketing, VIA Technologies, Inc. “Our latest reference designs will include SanDisk’s Gen2 pSSD drives, and we look forward to working with SanDisk to aggressively address the netbook market’s needs.”
