“A cross-disciplinary team of US neuroscientists and cryptographers have developed a password/passkey system that removes the weakest link in any security system: the human user.

On my Mac, MSNBC seemed to be throwing a popup to annoying low-rent ads served by http://content.pulse360.com/. There’s a delay between navigating to MSNBC and the popup launching — which helps blur the connection between the two sites.
