"Yes, anything you care about should be protected by a strong 2nd factor - but it's supposed to be precisely that a second factor. Something you know, and something you have. So the password is still very relevant."

But what if you don't HAVE a second factor: not even a cell phone, because you keep LOSING things? Or you don't trust cell phones? And as for those fobs, what was that RSA hack about again?
