pay at starbucks with an iphone app!
just saw the coolest thing! you can pay for your purchase at starbucks with your iphone! if you use a starbucks card (benefits include free soy milk / free syrups / free drinks), rather than paying with your physical starbucks card, you can instead pay with the starbucks iphone app!
i love the concept!
and i want to see the credit card companies and banks offer the same option! rather than pulling out my credit card, i would instead pull out my iphone and credit card app to pay! no more, amex / visa / mastercard / discover card / bank atm card to carry - you could instead use an app on your iphone / android / other smart phone like device!
places that use rfid readers for access - offices, mass transportation systems - could also offer the option of access with your smartphone!
even your driver's license data could reside in a smartphone app!
other than your smartphone, the only thing you would need to carry is some cash!
which means, we will need an updated tom bihn wallet! :) one that accommodates your smartphone and some cash!
this may seem silly, but i am really excited about this concept!
