Taking a much deserved break from her career to bring up her two children, she has gone back to her first love-writing - in her free time. She wanted to share her love for cool gadgets with the readers of AmericanInventorSpot.com.

Haven’t you always been irritated with nosy parkers whose main interest in the office is to poke and pry into your affairs? Leaving your cubicle becomes a major hassle as computer security can be a major concern.

I have found a innovative gadget solution to easily maintain computer security. The wireless PC Lock with Timer Control secures your PC whenever you leave it.

This gadget is nothing but a small USB receiver which plugs into a USB port, with a discrete wireless radio transmitter "key" which is held by you. When you move more than 6.5 feet away from your PC with the transmitter key, the wireless lock disables access to your computer, protecting your personal information from nosey colleagues! When you return within range, your PC resumes normal operation automatically so that you can carry on working instantly. Alternatively, a password can be used to unlock the PC.

Its battery comes with an approximate usage of 2000 hours and it works with Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP. Its effective range is around 6.5 feet or 2 meters.

A simple yet extremely handy device; it costs a mere $30 at USBGeek.com . It’s popularity can be gauged by the fact that it is already sold out in quite a few stores!
