    There is atleast 1 corporate version of the biometric fingerprint software that im aware of. All fingerprint data is stored on a server on the domain and every time a user swipes their finger it sends the request to the domain same as if it were a typed in password. Cant remember what its called as i was very tired and not paying as much attention as i should have been at that corporate dinner :p no need for fingerprints for local admins - just set up local admin passwords as normal.

    That line under it makes it totally unhackable :)

    You know like 90 percent of passwords would be boobs or a penis.

    That's the beauty of it though, some like to draw massive boobs with small nips, some the opposite, some might even draw the three-titted bird off Total Recall. :D
    Even if everyone's passpics were boobs or willies, it still wouldn't be that hackable IMO. :)

    Can you imagine the problems this could cause with inexperienced computer users?

    It might have been said/asked already, but wouldn't simply writing down your password be just as efficient ?

    Due to the way everyone's hand-writing is different it probably would be. :)
