One afternoon at Art Walk in the Design District I had to make a purchase. Now I'm not the type to really walk with cash I'm more your card person. Not sure if I would be able to make a purchase without having cash on me but that afternoon I was in luck. After placing my order I expected to see your average credit card machine that you would normally see in the stores. However, the young lady pulled out her Iphone, swiped my card using the iphone and I signed using her iphone. A receipt was then emailed me to.
I was so amazed at what just took place and I thought this was the coolest thing. Immediately my mind starting getting ideas. Ideas like imagine if I prostitute had possession of this, imagine if a drug dealer had possession of this and imagine if a homeless person had possession of this. Now I'm sure we have all been approached by a homeless person asking for change and we tell them "I don't have any change/cash on me" well what if they replied I accept credit cards lol What would your reply be?
