PACE Anti-Piracy Inc. has announced the release of a new version of the iLok USB Smart Key.

The iLok was redesigned from the ground up with usability considerations and performance in mind. The new iLok holds over 500 software license authorizations; five times the number of software licenses than the previous iLok.

Design improvements include the security loop on the end of the iLok so that two iLoks may now be placed side by side in adjacent USB ports, a stronger USB connector, and a new solid body making the iLok more durable than ever. The second generation iLok is fully compatible with the original iLok.

New iLok USB Smart Key

  • Smaller: two iLoks now fit side by side in adjacent USB ports.
  • Stronger: sturdier USB connector and solid body makes it one tough iLok.
  • Higher Capacity: holds over 500 software license authorizations.
  • Customizable: add a custom label under the protective sleeve – no more guessing which iLok is which.
  • Hip: sleek black design and cool blue LED.

The 2nd generation iLok is available to purchase for $49.95 USD.

Some interesting things I bookmarked on on April 1st, 2008:

Vintage Mics
  • Pocket Piano Arduino Shield – A board for making the Arduino into a portable stand alone music synthesizer. It plugs directly into the Arduino board and provides 25 multiplexed keys (2 full octaves), 4 pots, status LED, reset switch, digital to analog converter IC, and a RCA audio jack.
  • FET Preamp Cable – A phantom powered discrete FET (Field Effect Transistor) preamp built into the plug of a guitar cable. It provides almost all the advantages of an on-board preamp with none of the disadvantages.
  • Reprap – n. any open-source rapid prototyping machine that can manufacture a significant fraction of its own parts; v.t. (in lower case: to reprap) to make something in a RepRap machine. Arduino was chosen for the next stage of RepRap development.
  • Hackers Publish German Minister’s Fingerprint – To demonstrate why using fingerprints to secure passports is a bad idea, the German hacker group Chaos Computer Club has published what it says is the fingerprint of Wolfgang Schauble, Germany's interior minister.
