For me at least a wallet is a necessity. I have various forms of ID and other cards that I need for my job. Furthermore why should payment by phone replace a credit card when it is just as convenient in my opinion? Also let’s not forget the security issues that paying with a phone brings with it. Another thing too is that you can lose a phone as well, so to me it seems more like a preference than something that will make the wallet go away.

I had a similar experience at my last job a few years back. When I left they called me the next day asking me if I would come back and they were very surprised I even quit. Of course I didn't go back since where I work pays more and is a pretty good place to work.

Even though I do not like Windows I never thought that it could ever really die. However with the absolute idiotic things that Microsoft has been doing with their OS lately I think that it might actually be possible. I cannot say how or this would happen, but I think it will be inevitable (I could be wrong here). I for one can’t stand the direction that they are taking. The only reason I still use Windows is for gaming. Maybe I should bite the bullet and only buy games that run on Linux from now on.
