We're skeptics because we see right through marketing drivel. Some technology makes sense. Some, like mobile payments, serves no practical purpose for the average consumer.
I can see why you posted AC, you were wouldn't want anyone to think you were really that stupid, right? Just trolling with an over the top utterly absurd statement, right?
I mean, replacing credit card numbers that have literally affected millions of average consumers through POS breeches, with a system just as easy to use as a CC only now the merchant never gets your card number to leak... or your name if you don't want to share it, or your drivers license number to stalk you with later (since many places rightfully ask for ID with a credit card).
I mean, there's no way anyone who can even log into Slashdot could possibly see all those things as having no benefit to everyone, much less the average consumer... right? Right?
