The number of patents that describe the use of RFID (radio-frequency identification, or radio-frequency identification) and NFC (near field communication, or short-range communication) so great that it makes us think that this technology will certainly appear, sooner or later, on Ma's gadgets.
An invention registered in Europe at the end of last week comes to reinforce Apple's interest in this functionality: it describes how RFID circuits could be embedded in the screens of gadgets, amid the touch recognition components. All possibilities of using the circuit are described, covering the function of reader and / or signal transmitter.
The question is no longer "if" and has become "when" this will reach Ma's gadgets. One thing is certain: Apple will make optimal use of the 160 million credit card numbers it has registered on the iTunes Store , offering a iWallet to pay any bills safely and comfortably.
