Mobile payments coming to the U.S.

A sick development in cell phones, this means that we will have one more pants pocket free once we no longer have to carry our wallets. And yes, I’m aware boys will be more excited about this than girls. But seriously though. I thought we would have to wait until every single 7-11 installed another credit card machine, but no – they’re doing it through the barcode scanner! Not quite as instantaneous, but still awesome. I still think there’s room for Japan-style in the US though. If any Felica, Suica, DoCoMo, Softbank vets want to start a company, get in touch.
