Comments are full of useless who-did-it-first bullshit, so I decided to start a thread here.

What do you think about this? I'm actually super excited. I was very surprised that Apple's attempt was mostly either dissed or waved aside by both people and press. IMO it's an ingenious way to achieve a reasonable amount of security (at least for private individuals) without any complication. I think it's brilliant and I wanna have it ASAP.
