Credit cards

In the US our credit cards still rely on magnetic strips and signatures.  I keep asking when we're going to get the more secure 'chip and pin', like they have in Europe - infact they've had it there for several years now.

Today I got a new card from my bank in the UK, and not only does it have chip and pin, it more had something called 'contactless'.  Great, we're even further behind now.
