OneID Password System and Nokia’s Magnetic Tattoos

March 23, 201211 Comments

Welcome to the 32nd feature of Friday’s Informal Facebook Films! That’s as many as a full set of teeth in a human! Also a shout out to March birthdays. Chris Woodley’s was on the 1st, mine is on Sunday, and our intern, Nate’s, is tomorrow!

News Report – OneID Password Tool

Are you like us, and have more usernames and passwords than you can count on both hands…and feet?! Or are you one of those people who make every password, password? Well luckily, it looks like a solution has arrived to this username password overload. A company called “OneID” has created a way to login to anything previously requiring a username and password with one simple click. No longer would you have to enter usernames, passwords, credit card numbers, or billing information more than one time for everything. Worried about security? OneID has no centralized data storage, making it extremely difficult for hackers to access your confidential information. The way it works is, a user logins from a computer using OneID, and then verifies the login either with a second device of theirs, such as a smartphone, or with a pin that you choose. The pin, however is not centrally stored, so hackers won’t be able to gain access to it. So, what do you think of this idea? Do you feel the weight of a million usernames and passwords bearing down on you? Would your life be made simpler with a one-click-does-all system? Let us know in the comments.

Ramblin Jackson’s Really Remarkable Tattoo – Nokia’s Special Tattoo Ink

When is a tattoo more than just a tattoo? When it also receives calls! Nokia has developed a special ink containing magnets that vibrates when you are receiving a phone call. So now, when you’re deciding to use your body as a canvass for a permanent work of art, do it with this stuff. It would work by having your phone send out a series of magnetic pulses that would be received by the ink that would, in turn, start vibrating. The vibrations could even be customized depending on who is calling or texting you. No longer would “I didn’t feel my phone on vibrate in my pocket” be a valid excuse for missing a call. But we may start hearing people walk out of meetings saying, “Excuse me, I think my tattoo is ringing.”

    I had a feeling the blooper was going to be from that sentence!
    Yes to the ProTip.
    I would f*#king NEVER get a vibrating tattoo.
    Yes keep the remarkable report as well.
    I use 1Password. Same company as OneID I think. Interesting……

  2. Dru says:

    No to the tattoo
    Yes, to the Pro Tip – I miss it :(

  3. JD says:

    Happy Birthday to all! Yes to ProTip, and no to magnetic tattoos – think MRI and shredding skin.

  4. Rob says:

    Love your life plant in the background.

    Can you control the length of the
    vibration in the Tattoo?

    Have a nice weekend.

  5. Janet Taffet says:

    Do you think a vibrating tattoo would burn extra calories?
    Yes to more Pro Tips, because I get to learn about things like vibrating tattoos. I’m not subscribed to any other lists that talk about such things. Maybe I should be?
    Think you should get rid of the philodendrum in the background. Messes with your FungShui.;-)

    • Jack Jostes says:

      Janet, it’s a Saturday afternoon and I’m taking care of the philodendrum once and for all. It will be healthy by our next meeting. As far as other places to get pro tips, I’ll email you some ideas.

    Love the goodies. You always make me laugh and you give me something useful.

    P.S. I would have to be a REALLY GOOD vibrating tattoo. :)
