Google Wallet to be accepted at more than 7,000 Subway stores by April
Some Subway stores in Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York have already received the NFC reader and others will have it before the end of 2011. Sometime next year, support for Subway cards and promotions will be added. No doubt we will see a commercial where Jared heads into a Subway location, paying for a foot-long with his Google Nexus S 4G.

Definitely you would want a lock code and remote wipe.

In addition to having a PIN to protect your Google wallet, you'd do the same thing as when you lost your real wallet: report your cards stolen and have new ones issued.

islaves will be swiping their iphone 4s in front of the scanner and wondering why it hasn't taken payment and then realise that apple hasn't changed everything again again till some time next year with this added as the big new feature of the iphone 4ss

When NFC and 4G (for that matter) become more developed, of course Apple will adopt it. I thought you guys would figure out the pattern by now... ?

But I thought Apple was revolutionary and leading the business, not following behind and doing something after someone else adopts it first. Oh nevermind, they are.
