I agree, Joel. Payment systems have to be totally revamped. I just got my first credit card with a chip, which keeps the card invisible. I love the idea of Apple Pay, but it won't be available everywhere. Then again, neither is American Express. For now, the chip and PIN technology is a must.
As an aside, I pre-ordered the Coin card which consolidates your credit cards into one digital card. The product has been very delayed. Coin issued me a refund that I requested.
