You realize apple came out with two step verification that allows you to use any of your iOS devices to approve account actions? It's been a month since its release. Way to hate though.
Of course google has had the feature for awhile.
You do realize that two factor authenication has been around for years right? What do you think the primary business of RSA and a few others is? Apple is no where near the first to implement something like this (neither is Google nor MS).
