Word on the street is the next generation iPhone will feature NFC. Great! And.. that would be? Well, for normal consumers who just want new stuff because it’s shiny and new and supposedly better, such as myself, should know that NFC is techie lingo for turning your iPhone into a digital wallet. As if it wasn’t stressful enough to lose a phone, Apple wants to turn it into an utter meltdown. If they’re going to do that, they should at the very least include an update that requires everyone to have their iPhone password locked. I usually keep mine off, because I’m lazy. But whenever I go out (whenever I know I’m have a few drinks), I always set the password lock. It makes sense. I have important stuff on my phone, like personal and work emails, order confirmations, password requests (I have a bad habit of forgetting them on a frequent basis), and my notepad- well, let’s just say I’ve jotted down a lot of really personal dreams and billion-dollar ideas. Apple adding easy access to my finances seems laughable, for someone like myself. Maybe I’m alone on this one… but are wallets really so cumbersome? Has the technology world run out of genuinely inconvenient things to fix? Here’s a great idea: invent better packaging for light bulbs. Leave my wallet alone!
