MyIDkey – Military Grade, Biometric Password Manager And USB Drive
Are you tired of all those passwords you have to remember? Work station, email, bank account, Facebook and the rest of the social world out there and the list goes one and on! I personally use LastPass to manage all my logins. They also offer Android and iPhone apps (paid) which allow you to have access to your credentials while on your mobile device. It’s a good password manager, if you don’t use already it take a look at it and give it a chance.

On the other hand, if you don’t like to keep your credentials and info on the cloud and you prefer local encrypted storage, the MyIDkey is a good choice. The device offers military grade data encryption, biometric locking and unlocking, credentials manager as well as 16GB of storage for your sensitive files. The MyIDkey features a small screen for accessing your logins straight from the device and can be connected to your Android and iOs devices via a dedicated free app by Bluetooth, USB or WiFi. Connecting your MyIDkey to your smartphone gives you instant access to your passwords as well as to the files stored on the USB storage. Simply connect the app with the MyIDkey. swipe your finger on the device to authenticate and you’re ready to roll!

Nissan Nismo Smartwatch On Driver's Wrist While Driving The Car

After Samsung, Sony and Neptune Pine … Nissan decided to enter the smartwatch market. While their product is more targeted to connecting the driver with the car than all the bells and whistles of the fancy smartwatches on the market, Nissan’s Nismo promises to offer an array of tools to improve the driving experience. The smartwatch connects with your smartphone via a dedicated application which pulls information directly from the car’s computer.

Users will be able to have real time information about the trip, speed, fuel consumption and various performance averages as well as social media status update notification. Nismo will also allow the car’s computer to push maintenance notifications to it’s screen. The incorporated heart rate monitor (HRM) will constantly monitor the wearer’s pulse and compare it to current and past speeds, just the same as the biometric technology is used by performance racing drivers.

Another cool feature of the Nissan Nismo Smartwatch is it helps the driver with driving tips based on the information it receives. This way, if the weather forecast announces icy roads the Nismo will advise you to slow down or if the if a higher pulse rate is detected a reduced speed is counseled.

Nissan’s Nismo Smartwatch in in concept mode and no release date was confirmed by the car manufacturer. Given Nissan’s plans to develop more wearable technology to help improving driving experience, I am sure it’ll not take decencies to Nissan to release the Nismo watch to the consumer markets …
