Why Biometrics Sucks


Well, it was bound to happen...

The BBC reports that a machete wielding Malaysian gang jacked local rich guy K. Kumaran's Mercedes S-Class. Too bad for Kumaran, he thought having a biometric fingerprint recognition-based ignition system would be pretty slick. So the carjackers stripped him down and chopped off his index finger. We're not sure, however, how long that's gonna last on a keychain in that Kuala Lumpur humidity..

Good thing he didn't go with the iris-scan option....ouch.

Think he'll be able to finger the culprits in a police lineup? HAHAHA... ahem.
