    Hi Adam, check out “Black Mirror” season 3 episode 1 – Nosedive.

    A perspective of what your app “score for deeds” would look like.

      Haha. That’s a great episode. It’s one of those that seems frighteningly plausible.

    I was saddened to hear about the statistic that most people don’t care about mobile payments. I love using Apple Pay, it’s easy, secure and fun! It took a long time before I was able to get access to it as my main bank is the CBA who still don’t support it. So I have made a choice to use ING Direct – paying with my phone or my watch – is just so easy – I love it. Still hurdles … like Aldi (and others) that charge a fee for using tap & go, some shops tap & go doesn’t work, and some shops are cash only. I’m mostly cash free and will generally avoid going to shops that don’t allow a mobile payment.

      Thanks for the comment! Yeah, I personally love the idea of mobile payments. As I’ve said many times before, it’s less for the convenience than it is for the feeling that I’m living in a futuristic wonderland.
