Sometimes it's good to take a step back and realize that not everyone can have the latest greatest apps or assume everyone has reliable service. Looks like Family dollar is doingh a good job of doing without.

I am at the point where I want to turn Location Services off on my phone. It's really getting to the point where everyone knows where you are at all times. Hard to believe that maybe 10 years ago there was real privacy and everyone wasn't on call 24/7. Now you are essentially tethered.

That makes me wonder if you can't game the system a bit using a proxy service that can be used to hide your location or at least shift it until you get to check out. While I can understand why companies would try this I can only imagine that the response when it becomes common knowledge. People are going to feel ripped off and will get bitter. This sounds like a case of making as much as you can now and throwing away the future.

@Pablo - Thanks for sharing, i like the virtual wallet concept than carrying cards everywhere I go. But I would like to see how mobile payments are linked to the payments systems. I'm sure there would be a charge for that.

This is cool technology, but I still have to keep my wallet. Unless the system can handle all my cards, such as my driver license, insurance card, and membership card, and the officals think the electronlic driver license is valid.

Well, many of the things we deal with are not 'gluten free goods', they are different. Therefore, we need to decide case by case.
I have heard many people saying, Best buy is the showroom for Amazon. It is a common habbit to see, feel touch and the order online.
To make things even worse for brick and morter retailers, many customers shop at in person, then find a cheaper online deal, and return it. The 'physical' store lost its sales and had to spend some logistics to return/re-shelve it.

Google built NFC file sharing into Android 4.0 with a feature called 'Android Beam'. Once you turn it on in the settings (it's usually off by default), you can share contacts, YouTube clips, webpages, Play Store links to apps, and directions in maps or navigation.

Yeah I think it will be a real good step in the right direction for Indian Railways if they are able to put this in place. It will be real step forward, as I experienced recently that it is already working well with online ticketing . It is a huge endeavour for the Railway Industry , a good one too provided they are able to implement succesfully!
Its a unique filed this data crunching one but i bet it will gain ground in many sports ans establishments that manage sport. But numbers have a way of obeying their handler..an analyst recently said:"torture numbers and they will give you anything". Just food for thought while synthesizing the contribution of data sourced from fans in different sporting organization decisions.
