A simple solution to the password & two-factor authentication problem

There is a password problem?
There is a two-factor authenticaton problem?

And, I suppose, how exactly does removing security by reducing the potential attack vector to a single PIN help?

Oh, except, of course, I suppose if you're the one with the backdoor to everyone's information...

Uh, yeah, I think we'll pass!!  :palm:

(Though you'd probablly sell a whole bunch to totally clueless people!)

1. After reading the description, I have no idea what it does.

2. It doesn't look nearly durable enough to be carried around.

Without even looking at it, I think I'll stick with SQRL for my post-password authentication needs. It's designed by a known security expert, is far superior to everything else I've seen in both usability and security, and is just about ready for wide implementation instead of asking for money to get started.

And it will continue to be "just about ready" for about another 2 years ;)

And until then I have an excellent password manager. :)
