Even if you pay with cash, by carrying your smartphone (transaction + location) they could already tell what you've bought... I think. Unless you pay cash to the register under the table.
Yikes, talk about some bad reporting. Yes, Google is releasing it's mobile payments app. Google is also being sued by PayPal/eBay for hiring away those responsible in the PayPal camp for developing the app and for sharing PayPal's trade secrets with Google...that is the real news.
[citation][nom]otacon72[/nom]...very slimy what those ex-PayPal employees did if it's true. When you go up against PayPal you go up against Ebay...not something I'd want to do. Google's in deep doodoo if the accusations are proven true.[/citation]
paypal(ebay) VS. Google... and the winner is?!
I would bet google wins this one. But im still not going to use thier dumb app.
Unless there is some very good way of securing the NFC payment feature this is going to make stealing my phone worth a lot more. If I walk down the road with my phone held up to my ears, isn't that going to be like me walking down the road with my wallet out for everyone to grab?
