Forget USB. I'd like to see an offline client produce a QR code transaction, that I can execute with my mobile telephone.

Greenlandic tupilak. Hand carved, traditional cursed bone figures. Sorry, polar bear, walrus and human remains not available for export.
Transactions must be included in a block to be properly completed. When you send a transaction, it is broadcast to miners. Miners can then optionally include it in their next blocks. Miners will be more inclined to include your transaction if it has a transaction fee.

The problem in the MtGox incident was not unsecure wallet.dat's with the users... it was unsecure MtGox's databases. So the trading sites should get some standard equal to a modern online banking site, and not md5-hashed or even plaintext passwords in some unsecured SQL database.
