Your next cell phone may learn to identify you by observing your gait. Many of the problems with this sort of system are mostly obvious: if you change your shoes, sprain your ankle, get drunk, or are in a hurry, it will think you aren't you. But there is another thing that the article doesn't mention: it's fucking creepy! I don't like things that monitor me in any way during everyday life...thanks for your interest, but no, Big Brother Verizon, you may not watch over me at all times.
