Microsoft announces Windows Hello - biometric authentication (using your face, iris, or fingerprint) to unlock your Windows 10 devices and Windows Passport, a system that can provide a more secure way of letting you sign-in to websites and apps Instead of using a shared or shareable secret like a password.  

See the Windows blog post  http://blogs.windows.com/bloggingwindows/2015/03/17/making-windows-10-more-personal-and-more-secure-with-windows-hello/ and the promotional video at https://youtu.be/1AsoSnOmhvU
When we started building Windows 10, the team spent a lot of time and energy thinking about how to make computing more personal. We want your devices to recognize you, to understand what you’re saying… we want the experience to go wherever you do and we want you to feel a great sense of TRUST... <a href="http://blogs.windows.com/bloggingwindows/2015/03/17/making-windows-10-more-personal-and-more-secure-with-windows-hello/" class="read-more">Read ...

Networking local computer users of Trinidad and Tobago
Introduction

The Trinidad and Tobago Computer Society (TTCS) is a computer user group based in Trinidad. Formed in 1997, our goals are to :

  • Be an informal forum where computers, related technologies and related social issues can be discussed.
  • Keep current with the events in the local Information Technology (IT) and telecommunications industries.
  • “Network local computer users” so that they can share knowledge and improve upon their experiences with modern technology.

Membership in the Trinidad and Tobago Computer Society is open to anyone interested in computers, regardless of what computer hardware or software you use, or how much computer experience you have, or what job you have or whether you are still studying.

At this time, there are no membership fees. However, there is a small fee (a contribution to the food bill) if you attend a TTCS Pizza Lime™
