Google is envisioning a future in which email and online banking accounts are safer thanks to technology that would add a physical component to security protection. Members of the Google security team reportedly will publish a paper in next month's IEEE Security & Privacy Magazine examining scenarios in which passwords would be a thing of the past. Instead, users would turn to some sort of hardware device to unlock email, online shopping or banking accounts. The article details one device, a Yubico cryptographic card, that authenticates a user.

The only thing that is going to make login systems truly secure is something like encrypted retinal scanning. If it isn't already, I would think this would be something that should be entirely feasible and cost effective, especially if it sees common use. A chip implant would be another option.

How urgent is the need to provide broadband services for rural U.S. communities?
It's critical to the entire economy, and everyone should share the cost.
If rural residents really want high-speed Internet, they should foot the bill.
Internet providers will benefit -- they should build out their own networks.
The government should ensure that everyone is connected, but broadband isn't necessary.
People who choose to live off the grid do so for a reason -- leave them alone.
Providers should improve broadband services in heavily populated areas first.
