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.

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.
