I’m not even going to try and hide it — I have a goldfish memory. I can’t remember anything no matter how hard I try. To top it off, my mind wonders so fa…

Often times notes are useless as I merely misplace them or forget to look at them. It kind of sucks really. But somehow I’ve managed to get this far so obviously I’ve figured out some working formula. As soon as I remember what it is I’ll let you know…lockface

With so many passwords, passcodes, and passphrases being required by our increasingly digital lifestyles, remembering all of them is nothing short of monumental. And it’s bad security policy to use the same password/phrase/code for multiple accounts, yet most of us still do it. Why not forget pass-crap altogether?

The Lockface flash drive does just that by eschewing passwords/codes/phrases and instead relying solely on facial recognition software. Potential data thieves who swipe (no pun intended) your drive with hopes of retrieving digital bounty will be frustrated when their ugly mug is prevented from viewing the contents stored within.

98% accuracy and a password failsafe (you know, in case you have some freak accident or something) keep worries of a facial recognition failure at bay. Then again, remembering a backup password to a device that is supposed to do away with passwords puts you right back at square one…
