Some merchants are turning to fraud protection products such as CyberSource or eFalcon to help them combat credit card fraud. But most believe that these products are no substitute for an experienced “fraud team.” The situation becomes even more complex for a vendor such as LaGarde, who sells downloaded software products. LaGarde said that he believes the only way to protect his company is to carefully screen each transaction.
“If you don’t want people to know about your personal details, don’t put them out on the Web in any way, shape or form,” said Sullivan. “People say they can’t believe their resume is online, but they put it up on their homepage.”

Why shouldn’t people have the power to represent themselves with the click of a button, rather than ceding control to Congress, with their special interests and closed-door backstabbing? And you wouldn’t be to blame for wishing such a system were possible. But if you placed another bet that this system could actually work, well then, you would lose. Again.

They reflect the “ubiquitous computing” concept pioneered by the late Mark Weiser, former chief technologist at Xerox’s Palo Alto Research Center, he said. In 1998, Weiser built a water fountain outside his office whose flow and height mimicked the volume and price trend of the stock market.

The demo got people dreaming. What if you only had to buy one device—probably a phone—and just plug it into whatever you need? If you need a big screen and keyboard, drop it in there.
