Humor: How to (maybe not) use NFC

Humor: How to (maybe not) use NFC
Certainly this has been thought of before, but now you can see how it might look in action. We have made a case for NFC in the past, and feel that for it to succeed, it will need applications beyond mobile payment.

One area where it is finding a comfortable fit is with photo sharing. We have seen ads from Samsung touting it, and the “tap+send” feature on Windows Phone does the same thing.

What has not been discussed or presented is the method of using NFC, tradecraft if you will. Below is a video that discusses the trials and tribulations of what might just happen if you have to go out of your way to share something with one person in an effort to not share it with someone else. As the video shows, things can go beyond the expected.

that's pretty funny but the covert ways won't work because that could occur with strangers accidentally. on Android you have to initiate the transfer by tapping the screen. i don't need ways to spruce up my NFC usage though. i use it like a fiend. my whole family has NFC enabled devices and quite a few of my friends do now too. i transfer Youtube videos, webpages, pictures and in the future i'm going to use it to pair my devices to my Beats by Dre Pill.

Those was some fagots doing a video about wanting to do each other. Apple can't never touch the galaxy s3 or note 2
