Google for your Wallets?

Keeping it short here, but Google..in their quest to find out everything about you, will now be finding out how much money you have in the bank! Well not really. Google is launching something to rival Paypal's online buying service. Retailers around the world will be sent special e-readers that can scan a NFC (near field communication device..more on this later) with a cell phone. You see, Google would like you to deposit money into "your" Google account, just like paypal. But instead of sending you a debit card, you can sync it to your smart phone.

So let's say Joe Whathisface decides he wants to buy a new porn film. The new release that everyone's been raving about.. And its Joe's lucky day, they have a copy of Smutty Girls Vol. 9 at the counter of his favorite shopping store. He waltz's in, grabs his copy in his hands, on decides to use his new Google account. Which has his name, address, email address, bank, and all those good things registered. He scans the phone with the reader and whamo! The payment is deducted, and he's out the door to do what his has to do...

Now thats fine.. for other companies.. but Google? I'm not so sure about... Google is like that really creepy neighbor that peers into your house from time to time, but you must rely on cause he cuts your lawn for free... Anyway, yea so Google will now know what you buy, from porn, to groceries, to magazines, games, appliances and underwear...Later on that day you'll get emails, and banner ads relating to the things you've bought..Anyone signing up for this?

  8. I can see problems with this in the near future...

  9. I don't think I will subscribe to the service. PayPal is already evil enough. I can see certain advantages and convenience, but ultimately having one company in charge of all of that info is not a good idea.

  10. sounds like it could be convenient but its pretty scary at the same time

  11. Companies already do stuff like this some places in Asia. Personally, I know nobody at Google sits around all day and looks at my information specifically - they'd need to hire a LOT of people to do that for everybody. It's machines that look at your information. Why do you care if a machine knows Joe is watching Smutty Girls Vol. 9? He probably watches stuff like that on his computer and asked Google to search for it anyway.

  13. I don't think most people understand the implications of a system in which everything is tied into an easily accessed electronic identity. It's a quite frightening concept. It ain't just for marketing, kiddies...

    ReplyDelete

  19. Is it really that much harder to pull out your credit card then to pull out your phone, type in your unlock code, etc.?

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm glad google is launching a paypal type service. Not a huge fan of paypal, I'm sure google can do it better.

  30. Sinners! Aaaaa! But everything in its own way is business... Cool find

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hmm, I may check this out.
    I dislike paypal because they don't have all the regulations and requirements a bank does. Hopefully google have more strict regulations.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I really dont know, all this google stuff is so complicated

    ReplyDelete
  33. I heard Paypal is suing Google for this.

    ReplyDelete
  34. This sounds like an interesting idea. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't mind if Google ran the world. They do make everything easier for us...

    ReplyDelete
  35. They will be taking over the world in no time at all.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Sure its a lot more convenient with Google but this is a bit too much

    ReplyDelete
  37. I don't have a smartphone because a: they cost a bitch and b: I like actually having to type in the information that I'm giving away at my expense. I guess some people are ok with the idea of being scanned. It makes me queezy.

    ReplyDelete
  38. wow how did you collect all this information? good work!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I checked it and I kind of like the idea, crimes will be a bit different this time also... :/

  40. Google is the bane of established monopolies, by barging in with their conglomeration power. A Monopoly vs. a Conglomerate makes prices drop like crazy.

  41. Seen technology like this in Japan, it's an interesting concept but will probably be met with problems for a while.
