    From a hub of mine, which shall remain nameless.

    "Purchasing Methodology: You walk into a store. You swipe your device over the barcode of the item you wish to purchase. You walk out."

    I'm predicting this will be the societal norm within 10 years.

    And within 20 years, you wont even need to do that. When you walk out of the store, your ID rfid and the rfid's of your purchases will be automatically scanned and debited to your account.

    Welcome to the third millennium.smile

      So someone could actually kidnap you, take you in a store, swipe you and walk out with stuff charged to you.....big_smile

      So you mean something more along the lines you can do with the bar code scanner on a smartphone and pay via credit card without every approaching a register?

    Just wait til they start putting RFID's on babies so they can start keeping track of everywhere you go and where you are!  Don't laugh, it's not funny!  It's sad that we will soon have no privacy at all!

      My grandson will be four next month.  My wife and I convinced our daughter to refuse to allow the hospital to install an RFID chip, four years ago!
