Company accounts, secret cookie recipes, compromising photos of last year's stag do. There are many reasons why you may not want others browsing through your PC but now you can lock them out - with a mouse.Not just any mouse, mind, but the IOGEAR Personal Security Mouse. Sadly it's not a sunglasses wearing, earpiece wielding trained rodent security agent but an optical USB mouse with a finger print scanner riding on its back.Simply scan in your prints, and those of up to four others, and it'll lock out any other thumb smearers from accessing your computer.It's also been given a once over with TiO2 Ag nano-particle compound - a compound of Titanium Dioxide and Silver, which, we're told, keeps  bacteria, fungi, and algae at bay. Handy if your idea of cleaning is clearing a path through the pizza boxes.It's only available in the States right now while it waits for its UK debut but XP Passport will send you one over from its Amazon US store for $80 plus $50 shipping. Nice of them.Essentials IOGEAR GMEFP1W6 Personal Security Mouse Price: $90 On sale: Now Contact: IOGEAR Related stories: Gadget of the Day: Sony SMU-C3 Mouse STUFF EXCLUSIVE – Porsche Design debuts phone for oligarchs Fingerprint tech foiled by Play-Doh
