I’m sorry. Fingerprint sensors just aren’t as sexy as they were a few months ago. They’re not exactly commonplace yet, but they’re not really enough to set yourself apart from the competition either. That said, biometric protection is still a lovely feature to have, and it appears to be the primary selling point for the Mercury Data ES-SBD2 Bio Disk. There’s no actual storage here — you’ll have to supply your own 2.5-inch hard disk drive — but it does come with a fingerprint reader “to encrypt and protect your data.” The styling cues, well, they’re basically non-apparent. Let’s just hope it comes cheap.
