Technical Sales

I recently transitioned from strictly programming to retail sales of computers and peripherals. This requires a significant learning curve as my minimalist existence precludes me from possessing the latest technology with all the bells and whistles. For example, I do not get text messages nor do I own a smart phone. Oddly enough, however, folks trust my ability to help them, because I look Asian, where glasses, assess their needs and logically explain what I would do given their requirements.

Failwords

PayPal Says It's Time to Ditch Passwords and PINs http://shar.es/lSu1g via @CIOonline.

So let me get this straight...Hmmm...Let us no longer trust the individual to come up with secure passwords, but rather standardize account authentication through some oversight organization. Does this sound like a good idea or just another liberal ploy to remove individual responsibility in favor of a larger and much smarter collective that knows what is best.

Thank God for these smart people to help me with my life, because I am too stupid to realize the importance of passwords.
