I bet this will dramatically speed up the process of implementing thought-commands for Google Glass.
On Windows, you usually also get a swap file (c:\pagefile.sys) in the size 1.5*AMOUNT_OF_RAM and the hibernation/suspend2disk file (c:\hiberfil.sys) which is the same size as the amount of RAM you have.
Not terribly user-unfriendly, IMHO.
No, not terribly user-unfriendly, I agree... then again, you may not be the best example of an average user, having listed PGP and S/MIME keys on your website
Yes, same here in Switzerland at UBS. I have a SmartCard and a reader, and I have a PIN, and then there's some sort of challenge/response magic going on.
There was an article in the newspaper recently, and they compared the various authentication-mechanisms used for Swiss bank accounts, unsurprisingly, the outcome was that UBS had the most secure as well as the most user-unfriendly authentication process.
I guess online banking is where I'll always prefer security over ease-of-use.

Even though some might say that HP Wireless Assistant is bloatware, it isn't really.
It lets you switch on/off individual "wireless devices", like Bluetooth, WiFi or the newer WWAN adapters. Turning the ones off you don't need will definitely save battery life, and it might add some security.
And before anyone says "hey, that's what device manager is for", it's not. Device manager allows you to disable devices, but that would require administrator privileges, whereas the HP Wireless Assistant allows any user to do that.
I do agree, though, that much of the software on the machines you buy in the store is rubbish and is only there so you can buy your computer for less money than you could if the software wasn't there. Think about it.
Imagine having a keyboard with some non-US layout. Mine, for example, is Swiss-German. As there are a lot of French-speaking people in Switzerland, there are not only German, but also French characters on it.
One key has the ö, and when you press shift and the same key, you get the é. To write an Ö, you have to use the CAPS LOCK key. Got it?
