Ask Slashdot: Open Hardware/Software-Based Security Token?
Ever heard of "Malicious Number Porting"? Who needs to intercept SMS when your telco will do it for you?
SMS provides poor security...
At which point, none of your phone calls or SMS come thru, so you know that the device is compromised. And the attacker STILL needs the first-factor to pair with the SMS, and to have a way to trigger the security key SMS to come thru during the brief window between when the port happens and before it is noticed.
If anyone is that dedicated to hacking you, then they're going to get your data no matter what. (And if your data really REALLY is that valuable, then you'll be protecting it with something a hell of a lot more secure than this anyway....)

How Do You Store Your Personal Photos?
Damn, that's a useful device! Amazon carries this one and the slightly smaller QE4531 if you want faster shipping than the month wait on SentrySafe's website.
Best Telephone For Datacenters?
I know I probably lose geek points, but after fighting with interference on wireless phones (2.4 and 5 ghz) or headsets that don't go loud enough, I went out to Walmart, bought the cheapest POTS phone I could find that didn't have an answering machine in it. Then I bought a 50-foot handset cord, and tie-wrapped it to the side of my network rack. Yeah, I can't make it to rack # 15, but for casual "read me the diag lights" calls to vendors, works pretty good.
