"... Want an easier way to log into your Gmail account? How about a quick tap on your computer with the ring on your finger?
This may be closer than you think. Googles security team outlines this sort of ring-finger authentication in a new research paper, set to be published late this month in the engineering journal IEEE Security & Privacy Magazine. In it, Google Vice President of Security Eric Grosse and Engineer Mayank Upadhyay outline all sorts of ways they think people could wind up logging into websites in the future and its about time..."
Interesting. I was watching once upon a time last night. They needed to access a cell phone, but didn't have a pass word. So they used the guy's key fob and put it near the phone to unlock it.
The only problem I have with such a method, is what happens if you leave it on the shelf by the sink, or it falls off the key ring, etc?
You'd think a thumb print, retina scan would be the way to go, as you can't leave them behind.--
Is a person a failure for doing nothing? Or is he a failure for trying, and not succeeding at what he is attempting to do? What did you fail at today?.
