Re: Multifactor authentication is going to be the future...
Interesting, what piece of hardware are you using specifically? That used to be a big problem with some of my gear, but hasn't been a problem in a while for most components in my setup. Might be time for an upgrade!

@Joe, exactly!  I could see it used as a plot device in a sitcom with plots of revenge agasint the person who took control of the TV.

@Ariella: It would certainly resolve a lot of household fights about what to watch!  (Although it might intensify the hostility.)

Re: Multifactor authentication is going to be the future...
@brianewby i'm not sure if it was on this board or another that I spoke about the bank teller who really enjoyed his Apple watch, though all he seemed to use it for was to send the canned responses to texts. However, if it would be set to work off voice activation, the watch would not longer be restricted by the lack of a usable keyboad and have a lot more capabilities. That really could give it a lot more functional applications.

Re: Multifactor authentication is going to be the future...
@Joe thanks for explaining. I think some people would be willing to pay quite a lot for a voice-activated TV that is set to only respond to their voice commands.

Re: Let's hope synthetic speech doesn't catch up too quickly...
@kq4ym: Certainly, hackers have shown us that fingerprints can be easily copied and replicated using low-tech solutions.  The same may well be true for voice prints.  (I will say, however, that I have tested and observed that voice dictation tools sometimes will not transcribe a recording or broadcast, even if I hold the device right up to the speaker.  This isn't always the case, but seems to be the case often.  Presumably, then, there are at least some safeguards against this.)

Re: Multifactor authentication is going to be the future...
@kbode: I'll tell you, though, sometimes I have a heck of a time getting the right "angle" or whatnot in terms of pointing the remote at the TV or other relevant device to hit just the right spot.  It would be nice to have improved signal transmission technology in all of my remotes.

Re: Let's hope synthetic speech doesn't catch up too quickly...
I'm thinking that voice recognition seems to be a good security solution, but noticing that I rarely use voice commands now common for all devices, that maybe people just have a suspicion or somehow psychologically don't want to use their voice maybe out of fears that others are hearing them. And of course, I would think if someone wanted to record someone else's voice pass phrase we're back to square one for security.

Re: Multifactor authentication is going to be the future...
The challenge for Apple is to make it "possible"--specifically to make a "standalone"--it was supposedly positioned that way as with it, for instance, you can enter your Hotel Room/etc.--but there is only so much "space" to work it.   What is clear is that Apple has its' work cut out for it.

Re: Multifactor authentication is going to be the future...
One other side issue with the Apple Watch, though, is that it is a product without a need. I have one. I like it, and my office bought an earlier version to test the potential for converting our mobile apps to watches. I know most large companies with apps have made a mobile version, and maybe the profileration of those will create the obvious need. The App Store didn't take off at first the way iTunes did, but it eventually exploded, helped by the lingo of "there's an App for that." I think the Watch just hasn't, pun intended on this thread, found its voice.
