How do I prevent waiters from hitting the button and changing what card I want stuff charged to? How often do I have to charge/change the battery?

Lots of stores here check your ID and see's if it matches up with the name on your credit card.

Interesting. Will need to read up on. When the magnetic strip wears out you have no backup cards? Card changes id done with a push of a button, so if you hand it off to a server they could either a. accidentally or b. purposely press the button because they think it looks fun? I also would feel weary having my information for multiple accounts on a single card.

Just read about, battery cannot be replaced. You have to replace the unit. And the battery is estimated to last ~2 years.

giving a waiter all of your cards is worse than just 1, and I don't even like that.

need restaurants to bring a scanner to the table like in europe.

this would be pretty neat to have especially cause I hardly ever use a credit card except for online purchases..so instead of having to carry around a half dozen in my wallet just in case..i'd only need coin.

I do wonder how the ID thing would work, since I do get asked every once in awhile when I use a credit card for my license.

That would require me to drive out of my way to the ATM, and then I would inevitably carry around change, and if I lose it I'll never get it back.
