I found out about an app that Google is going to be releasing that will allow people who carry around wallets, to have everything they own in their wallet, programmed onto a phone:
Google Wallet - a smart, virtual wallet for in-store and online shopping
I'm starting to wonder if everything we do is starting to and is going to start relying too much on technology and everything technology related. I mean, carrying a phone around is one thing, and being able to access the internet on your phone is another thing, but being able to access your wallet and all your personal items on your phone? Really?
Also, with this specific app, i've noticed a few flaws right away that could cause some distress with anybody who decides to get it:
What if your phone dies and you have no means of charging it?
What if someone steals your phone/you lose your phone?
I'm not exactly sure how I would assume the success/fail rate of this app, but I don't think it will get very far. But it's not so much about the app that's the issue, more than it is the fact that we are starting to rely on technology just a LITTLE bit too much. I may be young, but I know when something is getting a bit excessive.
