Watch out employees, because your boss soon maybe able to tell what you’re typing just from listening.

Scientists at Berkley California say that they have developed a system that can discern what an individual is typing just by listening. Accuracy is apparently in the 96% range and the software needs anywhere from 10 minutes to a half hour of audio from that particular keyboard to know what keys are being stroked.

If you wanna trip up those pesky spies from listening in on your IM conversation, or online transactions then I suggest you clear your throat loudly or blast some 80’s metal.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
