Scientists: prone to pedophilia and fraud betray "keyboard hand"

Pedophiles who use the World Wide Web to find their victims, to help trace their way of typing, say British scientists. Researchers are developing ways to use technology in order to remotely receive some information about a person, including their sex, approximate age and cultural level. It is sufficient to study the rate and rhythm, which makes the object of observation only a few keystrokes on the computer keyboard.
Professor Roy Maksion (Roy Maxion), who is a senior lecturer University of Newcastle, held a series of studies in which a group of 50 users typing on a computer, while their fingers were attached electronic sensors. These sensors can accurately determine the manner and speed with which the user types text. This also defines the kind of "keyboard hand", which allows a fairly accurate track of a person on the Internet.

The accuracy of identification is 95 percent of the total after 10 keystrokes. According to Phil Butler (Phil Butler), who heads the Department of cyber forensics and computer security at the University of Newcastle, this technology can be used to track fraud and pedophiles. Thus, the identification system for "keyboard handwritings" will help protect children and adolescents from perverts who use the Internet in their crimes.

Moreover, it can be not only the sun's rays, but the light bulbs. This technology is suitable, apparently, for laptops. Thus, if it is implemented in the future may appear with the MacBook screens with solar lighting.

A prototype device based on the new platform Qualcomm MSM7x30 - photos

Journalists Resource Engadget acquainted with the prototype device based on a new hardware platform, Qualcomm MSM7x30 and publish the relevant photos and video.

Bulk Fermi version should appear by June - if there are no delays

It is known that the Fermi architecture is flexible enough to be implemented in a completely different products. For example, now fans NVIDIA ticking last hours remaining before the official release of the GeForce GTX 470 and GeForce GTX 480. These powerful adapters, recall, relate to the community of gamers and computer enthusiasts and are based on 40 nm chip GF100 (Fermi) with 448 and 480 kernels CUDA respectively.
However, the Fermi architecture may well be applied in a less powerful GPU, with, for example, 256 or 128 shader cores. Such solutions may find application in low-cost graphics cards designed for the mass consumer, while delivering technology to support DirectX 11. In addition, the Fermi function can be "implanted" in the mobile chip.

According to informed sources, low-cost version of the architecture Fermi should appear this summer, probably in June. However, if you remember how many times endured NVIDIA GeForce GTX issue accelerators 470 and GeForce GTX 480, which was expected to debut as early as last November, can not be sure of anything. We can only hope that the expectation of massive video cards based on the Fermi did not extend over many months, and we will be able to see these products, at least in the third quarter of this year.
