U.S. credit card firm Discover Is Testing Fingerprint Payment System
Discover Financial Services Inc. employees will be able to pay by finger at their Riverwoods headquarters' cafeteria and convenience stores as they become the first to test a new payment system.

Discover, which is working with French biometrics firm Natural Security on the project and which plans to get the pilot underway in the next three months, has previously used hundreds of its employees to test new technologies including various "contactless" payments, in which credit cards are simply tap. It plans to test the fingerprint payment system with 300 to 350 employees.

Discover employees who want to participate will register at an on-site kiosk, which will read an index fingerprint and assign a number to it. Each employee will also receive a key fob with a chip that includes information about their individual credit-card account as well as their fingerprint.

To complete a purchase, the user will place his or her finger on a fingerprint reader near checkout, with the key fob kept nearby, such as in a pocket or purse, for the transaction to go through.

How will Discover promote this type of payment system to suspecting consumers?

Yes, I think instead of many offering a finger for payment, will have in mind to offer a finger that says something else.

For each of these marks of "breakthrough technology" that come closer, I find myself further and further from actually participating in modern society.

And I'm OK with that.

As long as you don't become completely isolated though, that might have a lunacy of it's own.

Long periods of time alone can send you into a depressive state, or even make you feel like you're going crazy.

A genuine thank you for your concern.

I think that lunacy would far outweigh the craziness that must come from consciously accepting being branded and tracked like cattle.
