If You Give Amazon A Scan Of Your Palms To Pay For Stuff, You Are A Certified Buffoon
We really have some all-time morons living amongst us. Can you imagine being stupid enough to give Amazon scans of your palms so you don't have to tap a credit card at a grocery store checkout? That has to be the worst return on investment of all-time.
Now, I am by no means a Luddite. I love new technology as long as it's good and actually makes sense. Handing over biometric data to one of the largest technology companies in the world to be able to scan your palm instead of tap your credit card — which will certainly take even longer when the scan inevitably doesn't work the first time — makes less than zero sense.
You can already pay with your phone, which is as ubiquitous as one's palms at this point, pretty much everywhere. There is no need for this technology and if you volunteer to use it, you are a very stupid person.
