Revoke this!

The neo-Luddites are at it again, this time in the persona of Peter Dorrington, head of fraud at private software company SAS Institute who claims that Biometric ID cards are 'dangerously flawed'.

Evidently, technology has to be 100% failsafe before some people will consider using it, preferring to rely on outdated, outmoded, easily hacked non-tech methods.

Dorrington sums up his argument by saying: "A bank can revoke your credit card or your PIN number but they can't revoke your thumb print or your iris." Of course, no one leaves their iris sitting around on a stickee, either!
