NFC is just the ticket for London buses

NFC is just the ticket for London buses as payments go contactless | ZDNet

We've been blogging about NFC (Near Field Communications) for a couple of years now.  What a great example of its value!

"TfL warned Oyster card users in an email that they should take care when swiping their wallet against readers if they own more than one NFC-enabled card. "If you present two cards together, the reader will normally reject them both," said TfL. "But there is a small possibility of payment being taken from a card which you did not intend to use."
While several mobile phones on the market already contain NFC technology, such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Nokia Lumia 920, it is currently not possible to pay a bus fare from a mobile phone."
