Windows hello is a new authentication system coming in Win 10. It helps you log in to windows using facial recognition or fingerprint. Fingerprint based log ins are already part of existing systems, but face recognition is new. Before we go overboard, it does not use the current webcams, but needs new camera hardware which has infrared scanning and 3D imaging support (atleast from what I can get from the articles I have been able to find.
There is also a new technology called "Microsoft Passport", which does not seem to be related to the old passport, but seems to replace password with a hardware based token exchange for authentication to apps or websites.
The following video shows an introduction to some features of Windows Hello.
Also Intel has a video where their new Realsense camera integrated into Hello
With so many changes and fast feature addition happening in .NET, it is very difficult for people to keep up with the changes.

If you have been following this blog, you may have noticed that the design has changed last week. The blog is now responsive and supports rendering to a mobile browser.
One of the reasons this important is that Google is updating their page ranking algorithms. This is something that happens often where minor changes are made. There are also times when a major change happens that has a major impact on the ranking of your site. Except for SEOs most people do not follow this closely.
The difference this time is that Google also change has a major support for mobility. So if your page does not support rendering in mobile browser, then it will get a lower score as per the new algorithm when the search is from a mobile device. So it is important that you make sure that your pages are optimized for mobile.
Starting April 21, we will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in our search results. Consequently, users will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results that are optimized for their devices
