If the idea of phoning up your computer turns you off, then just give it the finger. Okay stop shaking your head, I’m talking about the latest in portable fingerprint security. The Eikon To Go Digital Privacy Manager RSA key from security gurus UPEK is the latest and safest biometric answer to protecting your files. The reader plugs into the USB port of your laptop (or tower) and scans your fingerprint before granting access to various programs and even registered Web sites, such as your bank and credit card sites. If the wrong finger tries, it stays inoperable. Don’t worry, the drive doesn’t record your print — safe data, and safe whorls. It works on both Mac and PC. $50. (www.upek.com)   RYAN THOMAS
