Review: MacID

MacIDAbout ten years ago, a number of PC laptops were starting to include fingerprint readers (the kind where you have to slide your finger across a small strip to read) to log into Windows and perform other tasks.

Currently, the company offers models for almost every portable Mac being sold and there are a few notable design changes. Did this peel-and-stick palm rest protector get better in its latest version?
