Idea storage

Tuesday, August 16, 2005


You might remember my post from a while back about my dream of creating one device to carry with you for all of your functions (e.g., keys, phone, tunes, wallet, license). From the front page of this morning's Wall Street Journal:

Takeshi Natsuno, a Japanese business man is "pushing a new line of cellphones that work like an electronic wallet with cash stored inside ... The first version, introduced in July 2004 [in Japan], can store up to about $450 in cash ... About 22,000 retailers in Japan have installed devices at their cash registers that can recipe the phone's signal."

Somebody needs to notify Wal-Mart about this immediately!
