Microsoft's Bill Gates predicts that the traditional password-based protection is headed for extinction because it cannot 'meet the challenge' of security. Hmmm... is he's really referring to the password-based security or Windows OS? I wonder what teaming up with AMD can really do. But i do agree, human-related factors are indeed a weakness, well at least in terms of security.

Looks like Microsoft is indeed serious about security these days.
