Comments on: PayPal sees early promise from mobile experiment Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 By: koam Thu, 11 Nov 2010 14:08:54 +0000 I’m all for mobile payments and love the gadgets, etc. But anyone who’s used the phone to check in or try to go through security at airports multiple times probably knows that the phone can be more trouble to scan than a regular boarding pass. Similarly a phone can be more trouble than swiping a credit card in that you have to log in, maintain signal, and keep the phone from timing out…and the retailer’s equipment has to work flawlessly as well (and the cashier has to be capable and confident in using it). I’d love it to work but have my concerns.
