Your front door can have a really cool lock

by

I think this is a great way to secure your front door. You don’t even need a key now – just your finger. Of course, fingerprint readers are not exactly new technology. But I think a lot of people aren’t aware of it yet. With this type of lock on your front door […] Read more »

Unique screensaver

Your screensaver might show you random pictures from your My Pictures folder – that’s pretty common. The disadvantage to that is you are seeing the same pictures over and over.
