SmartScan utilizes biometrics to scan the subdermal part of your finger (more precise than a fingerprint scan) to unlock your deadbolt, eliminating the need for keys.My excitement of solving a problem with technology soon waned after realizing Weiser has manufactured a seriously flawed product. Fuel was added to the fire when I purchased several previously owned products being sold as new by Home Depot. After installing and using the Weiser SmartScan product for more than a week, I have lots to say about it:
I’m very sorry to read about your experience. You should never have been misled about the new v used status of the product you bought – so I need to check with some people on why the vendor would have placed product in such a condition in our stores. I will speak to someone in Toronto tomorrow to get more details. Again, I apologize and am eager to get clarification on what happened here.

I've been using Twitter for a while now and it's always tough to sum it up (telling people it's micro-blogging does little to shed any light on it). So here's a really good example of why Twitter has a special place in today's connected world.
Although the video is a little on the long side, it's worth taking a look at.
There are a couple of points this guy is missing: for example, global depression is a real possibility in both rows of column A. That being said, the overall message is still pretty clear:
The world benefits more from action, despite the consequences, given the "potential" alternatives.
A friend recommended this video earlier today and I thought it was very well done. For everybody who dreads Mondays, check out this video for Monster.com.
Where the heck do we store, protect and effectively organize our photo libraries?Our collection started off innocently enough - With loads of hard disk space (100GB), we stored each photo on our respective laptops. If I wanted a photo of Heathers, she would put it on a memory card and I would copy it to my laptop. We quickly outgrew this method of photo sharing for a few major reasons: duplicate photos, missing photos and inadequate storage space. To complicate things, I'm a Mac user and Heather uses Windows. We had an interim method for sharing photos: I would be the "keeper" of the photos on my Mac using iPhoto, but I quickly started to use up my hard drive space and since all of my photos were on my laptop, it become a single source of failure in the event it was stolen, or the hard drive failed. Another challenge was that iPhoto doesn't exist for Windows, so we had to find something for her too. Finally, after much thought and evaluation, I've found a solution that works. Store your photos in a central location One of the biggest challenges with a photo collection is keeping them secured in a central repository. The device that stores your photos should be redundant in the event of a failure and protected from electrical surges using an uninterrupted power supply (UPS).
That's me in the septic getting ready to pull out the ejector pump (guess what THAT does). I think we were laughing so hard because of the smell and I was probably getting told to "get back down there" by Mike, a good friend of the family.
In a Nov. 25, 2001 NY Times article: ...Her other trademark is a scar that runs along the left side of her face, although she won't discuss it. "It's a childhood injury that was kind of grim," she said. "And it kind of bums my parents out for me to talk about it."I had no idea the mystery that is the Tina Fey Scar!There's simply no answer to the question anywhere on the Internet. I guess there are still some celebrity secrets out there and I find it interesting when I stumble on something that has been of great interest to others out there; kind of like the Tom Cruise middle tooth excitement.
