If Google,Yahoo et al didn't actually use the email address as one of the two log in criteria [email/password] This way there would be two unique log in options as well as the two factor authentication.

Immediate access to the real names of the people sending her those images

Hmm can of worms in that statement,whilst I despise those who have done such I don't think allowing the freedom of any vendor to give user details to anybody is a good idea besides which I recon most of them will have fake details anyway.

Re: Its not difficult to wipe 99% of the data from a device

Depends where system cache and password files are stored on Android devices they may be in a different memory area to general music storage.Even if in the same srea I doubt the device would allow full memory use before baulking with some form of memory error.

Re: Too posh for the bus?

Buses.....

Nay never they go anywhere and everywhere on the way to the place where you actually want to go and take an age doing it and they're full of mostly noisy, self centered and rude people [including some of the drivers].

BTW Most credit/debit cards already have NFC forced upon the user anyway, should you insist on using another insecure form of payment.

In this case

Indiana Jones and several 18/19th century UK "explorers" are well overdue a day in court for a slap on the wrist by the Magistrate.I guess the British Museum needs to actually start returning artifacts instead of reputedly arguing their ownership.
