Password (User) Insecurity

There is an article on Slashdot this morning about how easy it is to use
social engineering/bribes on users to get their passowrd(s).

http://slashdot.org/articles/04/04/20/1159207.shtml?tid=126&tid=172

I am interested in what the community is doing to protect user passwords,
and if there are any technologies that are currently deployable, that will
eliminate or reduce the need for passwords (biometrics, etc.)

Thanks,
