Not really for personal use, unless you live in an area where owning a cellphone is prohibitively expensive and a landline isn't. I think the number of geeks that would fit this niche would be very small. Other than this case, I really think the landline is slowly going the way of the dodo as far as home users are concerned.

However, being able to push something like this out to business and corporate clients may well be a viable opportunity.

I think your sig is a more valid contribution to the discussion than your comment... You can toss as many security obstacles on a computer as you can, but if your end user is a knuckle-dragger who loves his FREE PR0N! and VI@GR4, then your attempt at security is wasted.

Yes, ParkPlus. It is a pretty good system, but I don't know if it's achieving it's purpose - it was designed to increase the number of available parking spots since people weren't limited by the number of meters, but now some people just park like meatheads on the street.

All in all though, I give it a thumbs up.

My thoughts exactly. I frankly don't care how other people make their babies, but if/when I procreate it will be via good ol' sex. You already have the option of choosing your partner, thereby having knowledge (to a degree) of what your offspring will be like. If you don't want that kind of kid - find a new partner!
