    So I was having issues setting up my CC in Wallet. The app was crashing every time I tried to enter in the cards info. I followed the post to clear out the app cache and tried again and it worked perfectly! I even got the free $10 Google Card to boot! Can't wait to try this out (for my ego's sake)!

    Nope, not longer. Punch the PIN in while standing in line, tap once your stuff is rung up and you're done. Two seconds tops.

    I really don't care if you don't want to use it, but I'm not sure why you're trying to crap on it. Like it said, it's a minor convenience but not earth shattering, but you can't deny it's functionality.

    This would be awesome. Except that the store would have to trust that you actually scanned everything in your cart, or someone would have to be at the register to verify. That or there would be a lot of shoplifting alarms going off all the time.

    You ever used one of those self-checkout lanes? Same basic concept.

    There is usually an employee at those lanes, keeping an eye on things, and a scale weighs the items as you bag them. Not to mention the cameras.

    Right now stops and shop just assumes you scan everything in your cart, whether you use their scanner gun or your phone. All they do with the scanning guns is each gun,, every let's say 5th use of that particular gun, gets an audit which means the cashier has to check 12 items in your cart. That's it, thats how they do it.

    As a technology, it is really neat; but as with lots of things nowadays, each implementation erodes freedom and privacy. As far as purchasing, technologies like this bring us closer to a day when, for example, cash will be outlawed, totally removing the ability for anonymous transactions. As long as it is optional, it is fine, but I see the slippery slope. You can call me paranoid if you like, but that won't change anything.

    And that one company spying on you now? It must be Reynolds from the truckloads of tin foil you buy to make your hats.

    People typically mock what they don't understand. The amass of information being collected about people, shared between companies and companies and government, and the potential (and sometimes actual) abuse is truly frightening and it is ever accelerating.

    If you don't want to do it, don't do it. Plain and simple. I'm surprised you're actually able to force yourself onto the internet. Hope you have cookies turned off. Of course how do you know if they're really turned off...

For me it's about going up to that register and opening my rewards cards app and having lady scan my screen at the market for my discount card rather than carring it on my key chain,, then tapping my phone on pay pad and paying and hearing the register person say "wow, that's one cool phone". Lolololol. Sometimes its has nothing to do with practicality or convenience,, sometimes it's all about ego. Lolololol lolololol.

    I agree. Sometimes it's just about the wow/cool factor. I am right there with you.

    But people who truly believe this, instead of just liking to try to claim the sky is falling, don't go on the Internet or buy smartphones.

    Do I believe some of this happens? You bet! Does it worry me so much that I will try to dissuade people from using technology for their benefit? No.

    Yep. As I just said. People typically mock what they don't understand. Plus a few personal attacks are good to throw in (well, more like harassment). I never said it should be disallowed. I never said people are crazy to use the feature. I am just answering the question posted to me as to why I think it can be dangerous and further threaten privacy and freedom. Yes, LOTS of things tend to do that- like carrying a phone or using the Web.

    Just because one is careful or cautious doesn't mean one is paranoid nor does it mean one is a technophobe. I can almost guarantee you I am much more techno and for far longer than most people on these forums. Do I constantly worry about such things and lose sleep at night? No. Do I perform mental risk-assessments with new technologies and take steps to mitigate? Yes.

    It is a fact that this NFC payment system is providing more information about your purchasing to more parties than using a card. And it is also a fact that using a card provides more information about your purchasing than cash. With every technology comes risk- and in today's information age, those risks are very complex. We typically can't know what is done with information that is collected or how it might be used later. Choosing to not understand the risks is what most people do; and people today are very quick to trade privacy and/or security for convenience.

    Never said nor implied the sky is falling. Nor am I trying to dissuade people from using technology to their benefit. Just posing and answering questions. If I or others learn something in the process, great... that is what the forums are all about.

    How was your 3G where you were? If you're getting particularly bad 3G speeds (<200K) it probably won't work. Times out before the transaction can process.

    Well that is unsettling to hear...in my area Sprint's 3G is nothing but bad. Is it safe to assume that Google Wallet will work fine over WiFi?

    On google's blog (Google Commerce: Use any credit or debit card with Google Wallet), they state:

    Quick tip: lot of questions about the need for Internet connectivity while using the Wallet app. You will need an Internet connection to enter a credit card; to change the selected payment card; and to see transaction details. However, you will not need an Internet connection to actually make a payment in-store if you have previously selected a card.

    That's only valid if you somehow lose your net connection in between the time you enter your PIN and when you actually tap to pay.

    That conflicts with what they say. I've yet to get it to work anyway and I don't have connection problems.

    No, it doesn't.

    When you initally load GW either by manually opening the app or tapping the PayPass, you have to enter your PIN into the app and it will download your balance information to the app. So after that, as long as the app hasn't timed out, you can make a purchase because it just passes that cached information to the PayPass terminal.

    However, if you have no data connection (or a super slow one) when you initialize the app (again by manually launching or by tapping), you can't enter your PIN and cache your info so you can't use it.

    Since I have crappy 3G here for the last few months I always enter my PIN as I'm walking into McD's or the convenient store and then I can see before I get up to the counter if my info has loaded. Avoids odd stares right at the counter when your connection is acting up.

    I've seen people saying Google Wallet takes longer than using a credit card. . .I think you're doing it wrong! I walked into the gas station and while standing behind the person at the cashier. I opened GW, entered my pin and when I walked up to the register and told her what I wanted she gave me a total, I touched my phone to the pad and literally halfway through her saying "Credit or debit?" the register made a noise and spit out the receipt. Wide eyed, she handed it to me and I was on my way. The only way it could have been quicker is if I would have had exact change and left without waiting for her to count it or giving me a receipt, and I never carry cash.

    Walked into rite aid, in line I opened wallet, when it was my turn I tapped the pad and it paid instantly. Register dude was very impressed. Worked perfectly with my cruzerlite clear.
