    Imagine using your iPhone/iPad instead of a credit card the next time you go shopping, or out to dinner. That is what a patent filled by Apple is suggesting. You go into an app, and it communicates with the store/restaurant, you hit a few buttons and everything is done. Sound like it has potential, but it would take a long time to be wide spread.

    Hm... They do that all over in Africa - its like a major form of payment.

    I wonder if they can patent it due to prior art.
