I would think it would lock if you take the USB key out of the computer.

I personally don't see the use for this, but for the price it's worth a play with.

I've seen similar things to this in the past. When you move out of range, your computer screen locks.
Also because it starts a orgram on your PC, unplugging the drive will not unlock the system - although obviously it doesn't stop anyone nicking the device just to annoy you.

Anyone know if this is the same price in-store?

Normally is, unless is states "Web Price Only" or something along those lines :)

Couldn't you set a screen saver lock or something just before you walk away from the computer which does the same thing this usb does?
#10
Ok, its cheap - but why bother???
I don't get it either.
#11
mmm... well say you were working in a government "secret" environment, once set up, this would save you having to remember to lock your PC if you went for a cig and/or coffee, which could save yiou friom being sacked and put on the dole :whistling:

Of course you can, but this way you don't have to remember to set it every time you wander across the office or go out to lunch or go and play golf for the afternoon or whatever. In essence it's just an automated way of setting such a lock.

Thats better. Thanks. :-)

Thats not strictly true, these devices work on a different security principle to the standard windows screen saver. (Which is fairly insecure and well documented as such)

If you know about windows account attack vectors this becomes very important.

Thisn is a warm deal for this device imho, but the device is not necessarily a deal for everyone.
It has a purpose and if you don't need this level of security then use the built in software options.

my 2 cents.... :whistling:
