Next it will be an implant

Companies Test 'Contactless' Credit Cards: ``MasterCard and American Express have been testing "contactless" versions of their credit cards. The cards need only be held near a special reader for a sale to go through.``

While I think this technology is great, I can't help but imagine it makig the next step, and having an implant in your hand or forearm that contains all your credit cards. Some people will love the idea, some will hate it.

As long as I can still use cash, I'm not worried. But as soon as I hear of merchants stop accepting cash for transacctions, I'm gonna be real nervous.
