    If there was ever any doubt in the ability of Microsoft's amazing team at Redmond to innovate, that doubt will be shattered with this cool new announcement. Windows 8.1 will be coming with an awesome new feature that is an additional enhancements of its built-in fingerprint reader. You will be able to secure individual folders with just the touch of your finger. Here's a quote with some additional detail,

    It's amazing to see how things keep evolving. Share your thoughts.

    Only problem is, none of my computers have a finger print reader :(

    I bet, though, there is probably a USB fingerprint reader out there.

    Surely, Microsoft wouldn't happen to sell those.

    Authentec has a tiny portable one for $10. I know it sounds cheap but I heard they're legit.

    Well although this is a nice feature for the tiny fraction of us with fingerprint readers I wouldn't say it shatters my doubts about Microsoft's ability to innovate. More of a why did it take them so long reaction. Anyway, cool.
