Hallelujah, praise the gods of silicon!
Now the obesse 20 somethings won’t have to expend the effort of putting down their phones, reaching accross their desk and actually tapping on a few keys (they can unlock their machine and still have one hand free for Cheetos).

Can hardly wait until someone in Silicon Valley writes an App that Burps and Passes gas for me.

We really don’t need to unlock our computers with our smart phones. For Microsoft, developing technologies to do so seems like a lot of work with absolutely no real benefit. I can’t for the life of me figure out why companies like Microsoft and Google suddenly considering typing a password to be such a bad thing. Are they really unable to come up with any better reasons for users to upgrade? I know smart phones are frivilous tech toys with stupid apps that no power user can take seriously, but do we really need to spread this stupidity to the desktop?
