lose your phone? it's like losing your ATM card with PIN
if you lose your phone, then it's like losing your ATM card with the PIN written on the back. how stupid is that?

"Consumers will be able to use a phone as a wallet or as an access card simply by waving it over a wireless reader--and in some cases punching a personal-identification number, or PIN, into the phone--similar to how travelers in Tokyo and London access public transport."

in "some cases" punching in a PIN? yikes! it's bad enough that if someone gets your credit card they can go to a gas station and fuel up every car in their family without worry. now losing your cell phone is the same way?
