I see something I like.
I put it in my pocket.
I walk out.
What year is it?
You go right back to the store and bring it back! The year is 2013
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.
So someone could actually kidnap you, take you in a store, swipe you and walk out with stuff charged to you.....
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?
You mean that have n't told you about the microchip implants that will be compulsory by then?
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!

Would you bother asking about all the products you're interested in, or just leave it and walk out?
