Coin aims to replace analog credit cards with a single iPhone-connected accessory - Page 2

post #41 of 45
People still use the swipe system?

Oh, wait,it's American, and the USA never swallowed the fact that chipcards mean French Technology 1wink.gif

Social Capitalist, dreamer and wise enough to know I'm never going to grow up anyway... so not trying anymore.

Ah, an Apple user base member :p

Sounds intriguing, but what prevents some wait-staff from pressing the button on the coin and intentionally or unintentionally selecting a different card from the one you intended?

We'll just call them FreedomChips and never look back. :)

 

Just based on what I've read so far, I can't see myself adopting this Coin accessory. But if Apple could find a way to work with M/C, Visa, Amex and/or Discover and find a secure way to pretty much eliminate the need to carry around a wallet full of credit or debit cards, that would work for me... and I suspect many others as well. The cards that we are saddled with in the U.S. really are pretty unsecure. But as I said, if Apple could find a way to make a better mouse trap (and get some card issuer cooperation), seems like it would/could be a winner.

If two people always agree, then one of them is redundant.

I totally second the idea, and Apple definitely has the clout to make this work out, at least in the States. I do find a bit annoying to see how iDevices work much better in the US (if nothing else, Siri here seems so limited...), but of course I understand the reasons. Globalization still has a long way to go ^^'
