re: Intel designing wireless wallet for e-cash

NO RATINGS
Call me paranoid, but I want my "wireless wallet" to require me to confirm the charge in some fashion. Otherwise I see "wireless pick-pockets" and similar scams arising. A cell phone already includes a keypad and display, so it could show the charge amount and you then confirm (or even enter a PIN) via the keypad. But that would have to be separate from my service provider, otherwise they would charge for purchases just like they now charge for texting and everything else.
