As data d tity theft becomes more d more coon, the market is grog for biometric（生物测量）tologies-like gerprt ss-to keep others out of private e-spaces. At prest, these tologies are still expsive, though.
Researchers from Georgia Tech say that they have come up with a low-cost device（装置）that gets around this pro: a smart keyboard. This smart keyboard precisely measures the ce（节奏）with which one types d the pressure gers apply to each key. The keyboard could offer a strong layer of security by alyzg tgs like the force of a user's typg d the te bet key presses. These patterns are unique to each person. Thus, the keyboard detere people's tities, d by extsion, whether they should be giv access to the computer it's connected to-regardless of whether someone gets the password right.
It also doesn't require a new type of tology that people ar't already iliar with. Everybody uses a keyboard d everybody types differtly.
a study descrg the tology, the researchers had 100 volunteers type the word "touch"four tes usg the smart keyboard. Data collected from the device could be used to recoize differt participts based on how they typed, with very low error rates. The researchers say that the keyboard should be pretty straightforward to coercialize d is mostly made of expsive, plastic-like parts. The t hopes to make it to market the near future.

Popularity is a well-explored subject social psychology. Mitch Prst, a professor of ical psychology sorts the popular to two categories: the likable d the status seekers. The likables' plays-well-with-others qualities strgt schoolyard frdships, jump-start terpersonal skills d, tapped early, are ployed ever after life d work. T there's the d of popularity that appears adolesce: status born of power d ev dishonorable behavior.
viable as the cool kids may have sed, Dr. Prst's studies show unpleast consequces. Those who were highest status high school, as well as those least liked tary school, are "most likely to gage（从事） gerous d risky behavior."
one study, Dr. Prst exed the two types of popularity 235 adolests, scorg the least liked, the most liked d the highest status based on stut surveys（调查研究）. "We found that the least well-liked ts had become more aggressive over te toward their classmates. But so had those who were high status. It clearly showed that while likability lead to healthy adjustt, high status has just the opposite effect on us."
Dr. Prst has also found that the qualities that made the neighbors t you on a play date-sharg, ess, opness - carry over to later years d make you better able to relate d connect with others.
alyzg his d other research，Dr. Prst e to other conclusion: Not only is likability related to positive life outcomes, but it is also responsible for those outcomes, too. "g liked creates opportunities for learng d for new ds of life experces that help somebody advtage, " he said.
