    I'm working on getting a new credit card right now.

    What do you think about this, Iwaku?
  2. I will take my chances that I don't look like a man that has a credit card and/or no money.
  3. That is simply insane. I can not believe that credit cards can be so unsafe to use, and I have one of those with Paypass, so I am in danger. I will be definitely making a makeshift Faraday cage as soon as I can.
  4. And they said my aluminum foil pants were crazy. HAH.

    On a more serious note, that's quite interesting. I'm surprised that they left the signaling device bit unencrypted and all. Seems a bit like laziness on the part of the credit card companies and such. :\
