A question popped into my head about touch screens.  Can they recognize a fingerprint?  I googled it & it's being developed.

What does that mean?  If it's a joke, it isn't funny.

There was a urban legend that you could use a Gummy Bear to copy a finger print to be used on a finger print scanner like logging into a PC or Surface 4.

I looked at that site & it was Tsutomu Matsumoto who did the Gummy Bear hack.  He is also the guy who tracked & had Kevin Mitnick arrested, for the DoS on the university server where he worked.

Interesting.

Personally, I would have tried Silly Putty before a Gummy Bear.
