Makes sense for a standard / traditional non-touch interface.  As an iphone/ipad person, I find Android more intuitive, but I see Windows 8 on more dell laptops.  And soon Mozilla will enter the fray . . .

Why Digital Identity is the next major enabler for the digital economy | Transxfer | protecting your digital identity | privacy | Scoop.it
Fortunately, we are now beginning to see some attention being paid to digital identity, a field that has been limited, primarily, to the financial services industry. Why Digital Identity is the next major enabler for the digital economy | Daisy Group PLC. Our prediction is that all internet users will eventually utilize their own digital identity signature that will eliminate a great deal of the clutter, cybercrime, and other invasive digital activity.  It will also validate - privately - online accounts, various credentials, and other unique digital properties that facilitate private and secure use of the Internet. We'll see. Thanks to Daisy

TRUSTe Internet Privacy Index – US Edition | Transxfer | protecting your digital identity

TRUSTe Internet Privacy Index – US Edition | Transxfer | protecting your digital identity | privacy | Scoop.it
Great view of the 2014 situation regarding how we do and do not trust what goes on with our smartphones and Internet connected activity. If this data is accurate, the growth of questionable activity will be constrained and Big Data activities will become more difficult to accomplish. My sense is that the environment is much like the Wild West.  After more and more users understand what is and what is not acceptable, their Internet experiences will improve. Just look at the history of junk mail.  Productional and distribution costs increased and yield decreased over time. TRUSTe Internet of Things Privacy Index - US Edition. Thanks to Truste
