Jesus, does no one here do online banking? Banks already do this kind of hardware lock, in addition to key fobs. The benefit is less accounts stolen, which means less headaches for both customers and customer support.

I do online banking from no less than four computers, never had a hardware lock or a key fob.

When I log on to my various bank and loan accounts they know if I'm accessing from a different computer because I get a notification and then asked whether I want to register the current computer with my account.

Dunno if that's really giving me any sort of extra protection but it does happen.
