Re: Google Declares War on the Password

And what makes Google think I wear rings?

You didn't read the article, did you? The actual article is about using hardware tokens for authentication, and just used 'a figure ring' as an example of how one might conveniently carry such a thing - more conveniently than, I suppose, today's key-ring-sized RSA tokens.

I read the article, all right. But since you don't appreciate (lame but pointed) humor, I'm not about to start carrying around hardware tokens for specific sites "for security" or anything else. It's clutter, it's junk, and it's not automatically secure. That's just the sales pitch.

Next thing you know you will be wearing 50 rings.
