    If this tech is used, considering how popular the iPhone is it will be a prime target for hackers to crack the authentication used. Imagine how easy it would then be for hackers to go to a crowded public place, such as a tube station, and skim the data off these things?

    Nice idea but apple better ensure it's bloody secure first.

    I don't think Apple will have considered any of these fears. Maybe you guys should let them know!!

    Considering how easily iPhone's and mac's are hacked, sounds like a great idea!
