I still find it pitiable that the whole RFID key fob or credit card chip thing didn't die an ugly death in the discussion stage. Like the capacitive physical contact CD player idea, some things just don't make sense and shouldn't go to market.
Gee, wouldn't it be easier to get in my house if I just left the door unlocked? If I had my bank account number tattooed on my forehead, I wouldn't have to be bothered with all the "showing ID" stuff. Secure my wireless just because I do my home banking from my Barcalounger? That's for sissies.
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
