NoBeige.com reader, Eric Garneau, writes in informing us about an upcoming Macintosh port of Digital Persona’s U.are.U (cool name, indeed):
The product (U.are.U) is made by Digital Persona and uses your finger’s fingerprint to allow access to a computer, on startup or in a screensaver mode.
I immediately inquired about availability of a Mac OS version of this product and received this optimistic reply :
“Digital Persona will not be developing a Macintosh version for U.are.U, but we are in negotiations with a company which plans to have a port to our sensor for the iMac and Macs with USB ports by late Fall 1999.”
