Stick it in the dip and eat it. Smile

It's embedded in the card and generates a new pin every time you use the card. So, if someone has your card number, they still can't access your money.

never heard of paywave.

We are slowly moving towards payments at stores with mobile phones but most everyone I know doesnt use them because we have don't have "faith" in security.

There are a few stores here that I could use my iPhone to pay...but I really don't understand enough of how it works and how safe it is so I'll admit I don't brother.

It is instead of the magnetic strip.
It also has additional capabilities.

I was working on the encryption and the interfacing of these 20 years ago and thought "we are about to start using these here in the U.S.".

Boy, was I fucking optimistic. And wrong. Dodgy

same here. And the fact that I let my 9 year old play games on my phone at times, I don't want her having any access to anything that even hints at having access to my funds. Gasp I would be broke but have a kick ass garden on some farming type game.

RE: Chip enabled credit cards
When I went to the store this morning I traded two buckets of goat milk and some dried dandelions to make tea with for a bag of cat litter a dozen eggs and a chunk of ice for the freezer box.

What is this currency bullshit I keep hearing about?
