Title: The Ultimate “Smart Phone”
Post by: Jay Sadie on November 25, 2011, 02:50:04 AM
Almost everyone on Earth has a cell phone these days. You can travel to any country in Africa and you will see people in the middle of nowhere carrying cell phones. The cell phone has truly changed the world, in many ways we did not even anticipate at first.

So, why are we still carrying credit cards?

I would like to propose that our cell phones become truly smart. It should be used as a Central Databank, Identification Device, Driver’s License, Passport, Electronic Wallet, Membership & Credit Cards, and much more...

Open your wallet and look inside. You are probably carrying a lot of cards of all sorts, pictures/photos, and if you’re fortunate in this economy... maybe some cash. All this takes up space. Now imagine not having to carry a wallet. All you carry on you is your cell phone. One of the best advantages of this is that your “wallet” cannot be stolen.

If someone steals your cell phone (which is now your wallet), there is nothing they can do with it. It only operates in the hands of the owner. This can be achieved by one or more of several security methods, i.e.
  1) by entering a PIN code or password,
  2) by using the phone’s built-in camera to scan your eye’s retina,
  3) by finger-print scanning (pad to be added to phone),
  4) by DNA sample (pain-free blood sample),
  ...etc. The device will be rendered useless to anyone else trying to operate it. If this is the case then there will be no incentive for anyone to steal your cell phone/electronic wallet. Thieves only steal what they can use or get money for.

If you have ever lost your wallet you will know the frustration and inconvenience associated with it. Not only did you lose whatever money was inside it, but you also had to cancel all your credit cards, and if you had important ID cards, such as your Driver’s License in it, you had to arrange for a new one to be sent to you. In most cases you also had to pay an extra fee to have missing cards replaced. For a couple of days, or weeks, you did not have a credit card. And then you may have had some sentimental photos in your wallet. If you’re lucky you may have copies of them or have some new copies made. But sometimes they are lost forever.  The list goes on...

Now let’s look at what would happen if someone stole your Ultimate Smart Phone, or if it breaks, or if you lose it.
Step 1: Purchase a new phone, or if you have insurance a new phone is issued to you.
Step 2: Re-sync the new phone on your local computer, or online secure server.
And that’s it... You’re ready to go. Everything is back to the way it was before you lost your “wallet”.

So, we’ve covered security. The Ultimate Smart Phone will be far more secure than our current system of carrying money or credit cards in our physical wallets.

Here are some other great features of The Ultimate Smart Phone:

As you can see from the above The Ultimate Smart Phone will also help the environment, and contribute towards saving the Planet. Think of all the paper being wasted when printing tickets, or plastic used to manufacture credit cards. Besides being Green, it will also directly relate to cost savings... Very important, don’t you think?
