were a bit wary when we first got an
offer for an RFID credit card
, but we're defintely gonna fight tooth-and-nail to become the few, the proud, the
Metropolitan Transportation Authority "selected customers" who will be involved in a six-month trial for
contactless NYC subway payment/entry. The MTA is teaming up with Citigroup and Mastercard to implement a version of
system, which in a lucky coincidence for
MasterCard, will also allow people to use their new passes at McDonald's, 7-11, and other such profitable locations.
And to save our foreign readers precious commenting time, we already know that you all have had systems like this for
25 years now and compared to Europe/Asia/Canada the US is still in the technological Stone Age.
