Ah keypads. Before fingerprints and retinas, they were the ultimate in security, boasting over 3.5 million possible permutations here at Gadgetbox with the Thanko Morse Code Drive. Here's the scoop. If you're concerned about people getting access to the data on your portable hard drive, the Morse Code drive provides a keypad, which you use to enter a PIN number. No PIN number, no data.
But wait, you say. What about this Morse Code business? A mere red herring, my dear readers. No dots, dashes, or tapping is required. A stupid name? Agreed. But, should you feel the urge, feel free to tap rhythmically onto the drive's casing (N.B.: Gadgetbox is not responsible for any damage caused to your hard drive from this advice).
Really, though. I mean, it's a toss-up as to which you'll lose first: the PIN number or the drive itself. Next thing you know, they'll be making these things the size of grains of rice.
