I don't care for it. It's so much easier to just swipe a card. Simplicity is what it's all about.


If you ever spent some time outside the USA, especially Western Europe, you wouldn't say that.  Swipe transactions are the most awful, time-consuming headache immaginable.  Simplicity is a fast and universal solution.  USA needs EMV.   After that, NFC for small purchases would be a neat add-on.
