>The only fail I agree with is that you do not use your PIN.
We don't HAVE a PIN, so there is nothing was and choose to use or not use. There is no choice. No PIN.
>It takes about 15 seconds for the payment. Due to postings here, I have tested it and also looked at other people trying it out.
15 seconds is about 10 times longer than it used to take.
>I have NEVER forgotten my card, ever. I put it in, type my PIN and take it out while I have my wallet in my other hand. Almost everybody does it like that. Why would you NOT take it out again.
Because instead of swipe and put in wallet, which takes 1 second, you have have to insert the card, wait for 15 to 30 seconds or longer, someone is distracting you, cashier asks questions, does something, hands receipt.... all the while, the card is still there saying "DO NOT REMOVE" and you don't notice when it says remove. Again, THERE IS NO PIN. There is no interaction with the system whatsoever after inserting the card. So it is easy to forget during that long delay.
>Corroded card? I have been using these cards for I do not know how long. Never had that issue.
That's great for you. But my card, which is stored only in a clean wallet, had fouled contacts in just 4 months. VISA card.
>So yes, we get it: people do not like
Don't be so condescending. I have no problem with change, I have problems with change that makes something WORSE that it was before- more annoying, less convenient, more time consuming, less reliable. And that is my experience with this so far.
