And when your biometric data gets stolen?

What are you supposed to do, get a fingerprint or iris transplant? The techno utopians who've watched minority report one too many times and who thought these methods up really need to come back down to earth for a second and consider what happens in the real world. Passwords can be changed - biometric data cannot and once its been discovered thats it, you can never securely use it again.
