    Rogers and CIBC came out with a partnership today. Look's like the NFC and Blackberry's security are making it first to market in Canada.

    A quote from the article:

    The new technology will be available first on Blackberry devices, Rogers and CIBC said, followed by other types of phones after the launch.

    It looks like the Carriers won the fight with RIM on Where credit card data is stored

    RIM wanted device storage, Carriers wanted SIM card storage, and it seems it is done at the SIM card.

    my wallet is a small metal sleeve that holds 6 cards, which I choose on a trip by trip basis which they are, removal of 1 credit card means less choices need to be made.


    because I spend a lot of time sitting I keep a thin wallet for the sake of my spine. thick wallet in your rear pocket is bad for you.
