So have you heard of the new Apple Passbook?
“Passbook keeps things like airline boarding passes, movie tickets, and gift cards all in one place, letting you scan your iPhone or iPod touch to check in for a flight, get into a movie, redeem a coupon, and more.”
Sound cool, right.? Well, it frankly scares the hell out of me.
This is what I see in my mind’s eye when I hear the word Passbook:
I thought I still had one somewhere in my credenza as I wanted to scan it for this post, but it seems to have gone to its reward along with my Rubik’s Cube.
I used one of these at work when I still had my Passbook. It could not be used to book flights, obtain movie tickets or gift cards. It could save my documents to giant disks, though.
My next post will be about the horrors of getting your paycheque on a Friday after the bank closed.
