Forecast

Signing on your iPhone and the new Apple tablet is the beginning of a far more effective system than login and password. It will happen because there is a large pent-up demand for something a lot more reliable and convenient than passwords and the usual login, username or account number etc. This patent, US Patent # 7653883 assigned to Apple will enable a very friendly signature biometric on its devices starting tomorrow and, of course, many other user interface goodies. Others will follow suit in an attempt to ride Apple's coattails. Medical and legal applications alone represent a huge potential market. Documents stored in the cloud will be MORE secure than in the safe in your home.
