Smartphones and Starbucks

Our increasing reliance on smartphones isn’t a secret. Ask anyone under 50 if they’d rather lose their phone or their wallet and you’re likely to have more people answer wallet than phone. The answer makes more sense if you think about it. More personal, sensitive information is contained on someone’s phone than in their wallet – including forms of payment.

Starbucks has recently reported that 10% of its customers in the US pay via smartphone. This is largely possible due to the company’s payment app that allows users to pay using a virtual copy of their Starbucks card. All a customer has to do is pull up the barcode on their phone and have the cashier scan the screen.

It’s so frightening to them that they’ve banded together to keep Verizon out of the country!

They’re not asking the government to ban Verizon; they just want Canada to look less appealing. The three companies have banded together and started a public ad campaign to get Canada’s anti-consolidation laws abolished.
