    Not sure I would trust someone to scan my card etc. with their phone...
    Would you?

    we're looking at the american technology here (where they dont have pins to enter)

    the device is really handy, but the app has been around for almost 2 years so nothing new as far as im aware there

    Didn't know it was already being used Stateside (the app that is) and yeah the device being able to scan that data through the audio jack is pretty impressive!

    We were talking about this a couple weeks ago at the office. What's the difference between swiping your card through a phone or an pin machine? People can screw around with those too...
