I forgot my wallet this morning. I grabbed my mobile phone though, and perhaps that’s why I forgot my wallet in the first place.
Like music, books, and movies and pretty much everything else, the wallet is converging into the phone. I use the Starbucks app every day. Some day so too your car and house keys will synch along with your passport and license; everything with data will talk to each other. The Smartphone will simply be the remote control to all widgets.

The good news is that wallet will be one less thing to carry around. You’ll never leave home without it. The bad news is that all it’ll take for someone to take over your life and material possessions will be to steal your phone. Steal your phone, steal your life.
