it'll be like the chip+pin cards that were 'unbreakable'.

Yeah, I get it, it's still a problem. My point though was not to solve this, it was to provide a way that your 'fingerprint hash' could be revoked and replaced with another. If your hash is based on fingerprint + password then that can be revoked and replaced with a hash based on fingerprint + newpassword, something you can't do with a fingerprint alone (or, at least limited to fingers, toes, ears etc).


Steven Hawking Considering Move To Canada 378

thepacketmaster learned of "...the possibility of Steven Hawking moving to Waterloo in Canada: 'A report out of Britain suggests Stephen Hawking is considering an invitation to come work at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics....But he's also being encouraged to move to Ontario by his University of Cambridge colleague Neil Turok, the mathematical physicist who will take over as Perimeter's executive director on Oct. 1. Perimeter confirmed last night that it has made a standing offer to Hawking...Turok is leaving Cambridge after failing to persuade university authorities, research councils and sponsors to spend $40 million...By comparison, Waterloo's Perimeter Institute has about $600 million in funding...The addition of Hawking to Perimeter's staff of top physicists would be a major coup for the research institute, founded in 1999 by Mike Lazaridis, founder and co-CEO of Research In Motion, which makes the BlackBerry.'"
