DocScrutinizer05hey, I calim copyright in "zero-factor authentication"! ;-P00:01
DocScrutinizer05I'm quite happy that it obviosly conveys all implications it meant to00:02
DocScrutinizer05I.E. brilliant marketing, idiotic marketing, not understanding the least bit00:02
wpwrakoh, that was your invention. i thought some marketing creature used it. sorry then :)00:03
DocScrutinizer05and there's an award you could assign to that thing with a bit of liberal interpretation: Darwin Award00:03
wpwrakwell, zero-factor means that you need nothing. i.e., not even the (stolen) phone00:03
wpwrakfactor = something you have (key, phone, ...) or something you know (pin, password, ...)00:04
DocScrutinizer05well, for doing business via the mobile-banking app it actually is kinda zero-factor00:04
DocScrutinizer05since you already _have_ the phone, when you stole it00:05
DocScrutinizer05that's why I call it zero-factor00:05
wpwrakgo to wwww.dumme-bank.de, select "pay me", enter destination and amount, and watch your net worth grow ;-)00:05
wpwrakno, zero-factor would be before stealing the phone00:06
DocScrutinizer05errr, well00:06
DocScrutinizer05I worked in a cinema for years. Do I need to tell more?00:06
wpwrakthink of the keys of your home: if you own it, the prospective thief can't get in, but after stealing it, yes00:06
wpwrakwell, picking up and abusing things people leave behind is still illegal :)00:07
DocScrutinizer05keys are actually two-factor, key and address aka door00:07
wpwrakindeed. key with "if found, please return to <full address>" then :)00:07
DocScrutinizer05unless you're sily enough to write your address on the key00:07
wpwrakc'mon, there are companies offering that sort of return service. so if we can cut out the man in the middle, that's great, right ? :)00:08
DocScrutinizer05you know you're a nerd, when... http://maemo.cloud-7.de/share-service/20141117_003.jpg Right to left: mains outlet tripler, urgently needed. Oral-B toothbrush and waterjet, fun! Water tap with LED (blue<25°, green<40°, red) and unusual waterfall alike nozzle, COOL!  Soap dispenser with IR light sensor and DIY refill based on a coke bottle lid. DIY lightswitch unusually placed _under_ the mirror locker. Camping Toilet bag. Black 00:22
DocScrutinizer05telephone cable mounted with hot glue, and at end of it: remote controller for the digitally controlled "8 wellness programs" water heater.  ;-P00:22
DocScrutinizer05s/COOL/luke ( ~30°C -> green)/00:23
DocScrutinizer05(blurr intended ;-D )00:25
DocScrutinizer05you might ask why the remote is placed that awkward. But the shower is directly to the left of it00:33
wpwrakit's a fake. too blurry for a real nerd :)01:27
