I was doing marketing work for Sprint PCS during the launch days around 7-8 years ago and they were talking about this stuff then. I'm still waiting to get my Coke from a vending machine with my phone!

Here's the technology I want. I want to use my phone to scan a upc code on a book and have it look on Amazon to tell me what used one's are selling for. Does that already exist?

There was a system announced last year that does just that. It appears to be patentware and not yet a real proiduct.

Thanks for your comment.


The same people who invented web-spoofing are going to have a blast with this. I'm not saying that's a reason not to do it - I'm just saying it's gonna be interesting to see what kind of cell-phone/RFID-swiping scams are going to pop up.


The RFID is a sign of the times. Eventually, it will be required to have this RFID chip embedded into your hand for identification and shopping purposes. Something that you cannot buy, sell, or trade without. The mark of the beast.
“He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16-17
