    However then you get some place that doesn't process nfc etc.. And this provides the backup.

    So is Google a sinister BIG Brother [part CIA/part private] to be wary of, or a genuine growth company embracing technology to the nth degree? Knowledge is power, and Google knows almost everything about us already ... via email, Picasa, facebook/twitter, 'net forums, web-bots, adsense ... etc.

    Doesn't bother me much but young'uns may be tracked from cradle to grave: step by step (phone GPS), word by word (phone/FB/email), transaction by transaction (debit card/adsense).

    Makes sense of FREE Gmail, Picasa, and all the other tools we use daily. Tinfoil hat off now ...
    Cheers, Rob.

    Forget innovation,

    I'd like to see some actual security.

    In 2011 card fraud cost Australia 1.4 billion dollars, anyone here think the banks adsorbed that cost out of the kindness of their hearts or passed it on as higher fees.
