care to elaborate?
your getting closer and closer thing can be interpreted a couple different ways.
I believe you have to have a credit card to even get a phone (do to contracts) so wouldn’t this just replace the credit card which is already "cashless"?
I don’t really see much of a problem with this idea, seems handy to me. (since we are already using credit cards, this isn’t any worse, its just a new form of plastic - however I maybe wrong, maybe you could explain why it could be so terrible)
