Coin: a step closer to getting rid of my wallet

Coin: a step closer to getting rid of my wallet | World news | Scoop.it
"Coin is a connected device that can hold and behave like the cards you already carry. Coin works with your debit cards, credit cards, gift cards, loyalty cards and membership cards. Instead of carrying several cards you carry one Coin. Multiple accounts and information all in one place."
Via Jim Lerman, Guillaume Decugis
Jack Kinne's insight:
I think that this is a hue leap in development of easier payment. I think it is kin-dove unsafe because if it is stolen they have full access to all of you're money. Other wise I think it is amazing that you can have so much on one card

Jack Kinne's insight:
I think that it is amazing how someone who has such a bad song can get so rich and so many views. Out of 300,000,000 views about 8 of those people liked the video so I think that its cool how just about anything can be amazing. I wonder why it was that her mom paid so much money to that record label and if she paid her mom back.

Jack Kinne's insight:
I think it is very strange that people would worship a raspberry pi. I also think that it is very funny. I can't help but wonder why would someone worship a pi and why. If i were in that place I wonder i would also worship the pi.

I think that it is great that people have decided to stop killing elephants! I think that it is about time that they decided to take action in preserving the elephants. I wonder why it took them so long to decided to stop it?

In digital age, librarians are needed more than ever [infographic] | World news | Scoop.it
“ It's so good such infographics like the one presented below are created. They don't only list challenges both librarians and library patrons face in times”
Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge
Jack Kinne's insight:
When I saw this headline I was amazed that in this day and age we would need librarians. I thought that as technology progresses and people buy their books off the internet more than Librarians would soon no longer be needed. I wounder if people are still trying to become librarians.
