'Authorised devices' (with a certificate/token authentication), with a -backup- password or other method. Every device has its own MAC address, why not take advantage of that? Of course, that doesn't eliminate -stealing- the device... but at least you can't do that from a distance ; ).

The missing "a" does make sense: aren't "man" and "mankind" synonymous? "A man" and "mankind" are obviously different, and if used would make a more meaningful (and humble) phrase meaning: "one l'il tippytoe for l'il old me, but what a mark of progress!".

It's great to be smart 'cause then you know stuff.
