@Ed Falk: Did you miss the section "what if I lose my cell phone?" @JoynerCN: I was wondering the same thing. If we use application-specific passwords, doesn't this effectively revert back to single-factor authentification with a strong password? Sure, we're still using 2-factor at most places, but there still is a way to get in with a single password. The system is only as good as its weakest link, right?

It's in the car where it really seems to have found it's niche. Hands-free voice activated dialing and bluetooth over the car system means not having to look away from the road, take your hands off the wheel, or even touch your phone to make a call. Or setting the destination for the nav system while driving. Or even the radio. And so on. But still I get frustrated with my own car's system. Partly due to some design flaws that cause minor annoyances. And partly due to it sometimes just not understanding what I'm trying to tell it. Even with an extremely limited vocabulary and command set, and even with the ability to train the system to my own voice, it *still* manages to get it wrong some of the time. So yes, there's a long way to go. But I think it can prove to be a wonderful tool for some limited applications like that. Basically anyplace where your hands and eyes might be tied up doing something else.
