Today my colleague and I tried Starbucks "new" mobile payment tool at the local Bucks. See this article
from Mobile Commerce Daily. His worked easily but the Barista could not figure out how to process mine...typical if you know the Barista. In any event, this is clear sign that the times are changing on a mass scale. When a major retail coffee chain replaces their card system with a mobile bar code scanner you can bet other major players will do the same in the near future.
I think it is only a matter of time until all the plastic cards in my wallet are on my iPhone or mobile device. Whats your take - Is the end of the wallet near?
