Mobile Payment Systems - the wallet in your cell phone

0. phoneArena posted on 30 Jun 2011, 05:14

Very soon your phone will have a new feature called something in the realms of “Mobile Wallet”, or “Wave&Go”, or whatever the marketing department has brainstormed. Will it be a sweeping change on the way to a cashless society, a convenient add-on, or a gimmick for hip early adopters?...

Extremely old technology. Japan had this going way before the US and now everyone again just like their front facing camera, is shitting bricks over something that could have been introduced years ago.

This article is about mobile payment not about what Apple has inside the iPhone. Thats enough for million of user. If you don't like the iPhone - go and buy Nokia and safe your nerves by hating Apple LOL I'm against having my wallet in my phone. If your phone is stolen tell me how you call the bank to block your credit card or PayPal account? LOL

Call me old school, but I won't ever use this techology. I see lots of security issues with it. And there are many times I don't take my cell phone with me when I'm out (yeah, I don't have to be connected to the world all the time).

amazing how simple minded some people are
reading the comments here suggests to me that we are lucky to not be using bronze tools in North America
the fear that technology is changing too much is pointless
it is here, it is here to stay, either embrace it or get out of the way
whining about it will not change anything

it is simple, elegant, and been in use for YEARS with no more problems for the average user than carrying cash or a credit card. This is no different at the heart of the matter than were debit cards twenty years ago...we all use them now...despite similar pathetic whimpering from the same people or their parents that complain about it today...

go back to sleep RIP Van Winkle...one day you may understand.
