Big brother gets another tool

Japanese technology, scans veins/arteries in your fingers (sounds like a variation on the retina scan). Apparently it's already been rolled out: http://technology.timesonline..../tech_and_web/article5129384.ece

I've been waiting for technology to scan veins/arteries in your colon - the rectal scanner!

Picture a "probe" mounted on your office chair. Lube up, sit down, log in! Automatic log out when you get out of your chair.

The great thing about the rectal scan is that you really have to be serious to want to try to hack it. It also gets by that pesky cutting off fingers and gouging out eyes technique.

And I'm sure rigor mortis keeps the "backdoor password" inaccessible after death.
