    I have no doubt this will be the next cool "thing" and will catch on with the smartphone crowd, but what I just dont understand how this is any more convenient than having a credit card. You still have to take something out of your pocket in order to pay, and if you lose your phone you are screwed, both socially and financially.

    Google is scary. Just when you think they already know everything about you they look for something else.

    Great, the cost of goods will now go up because everyone is using coupons and getting discounts. Companies will have to make up for it somehow.
