I'm not hung ho about NFC. No one can say for certain what Apple's plans are if any for NFC. The same people that say it sucks, and Apple will never use it will be on here saying it's suddenly a great idea. I don't know about you, but in my book that's hypocrisy.
That's so idealistic, but not very realistic. Just look at how many things we use today whose design hasn't changed in decades, even centuries.Sometimes there just isn't a different solution that works the same let alone better.
