Well, I am all for taking some power away from paypal and ebay as they have pushed political agendas in the past with respect to who they do and don’t allow to use the service. Not saying Google doesn’t have agendas, but I am all for competition and options
That’s an idea. I’ll look into that. It’d be nice for other things too (Amazon, for one).
Heh, I actually got a physical google wallet card in the mail the other day. It is… pretty fucking useless. It is a mastercard prepaid debit card so just about nothing where I live accepts it AND the card is cheap enough that the numbers will rub off if I keep it in my wallet (which might actually be a good thing, I guess). But I am tying it to stuff like the PSN and what not where I usually just buy prepaid cards anyway. That way Sony and what not won’t bitch at me for not having a card on file but I never have to use said card. And if I do use said card: I have 500 bucks I can transfer in before they charge a 3% fee, and it is potentially useful if I need to pay for something from a shady merchant with a credit card (whether it is a gas station in the middle of nowhere or just a waiter who I am pretty sure is a crackhead…).
