Sony Vaio Duo 13

LAP DANCE Is it a laptop? Is it a tablet? Is it any good?

At first glance, you’d be forgiven for thinking Sony’s Vaio Duo 13 is a huge Windows 8 tablet.

Advanced development agency of the Ministry of Defense DARPA is working on a new method of identification that can read the biometric data of the user during normal use of the keyboard.

The original purpose of the program is to identify a person who works in a normal environment — without compromising normal operation.

The goal of the new program DARPA — the development of "active methods of authorization", implying that the identity of the user will be set as the "individual using the keyboard with actions that are usually performed."
