More Ways to Spend Money 2

Now not just on cell phones, but also with cell phones:

Family-owned Chevy Chase Supermarket is one of the first businesses in the Washington area to begin putting in place a pay-by-cellphone system. Using radio frequency identification (RFID) chips, customers will be able to store credit card and bank account numbers in their cellphones and charge their bill by swiping the phone across a sensor in the checkout line.

    I can see it now, a cell phone is lost, then the owner not only has to replace that, but worry about ID theft as well. Doesn’t seem to be such a good idea.

    I still like to pay my bills with checks. Sometimes, nothing beats a paper trail.
