This really needs to be emphasized.  I meet people all the time who ask me if I can build them a magic USB dongle that they can plug in to their computer and somehow make it magically secure.  I have to explain to them that the very fact that they are asking this question -- that this possibility is part of their world view -- is a big part of the problem.  Most of them don’t like hearing that.
