Twitter and Facebook were all a-flutter yesterday with links to the product page for Coin. If you’re not familiar with it, Coin is a credit card-sized device that can store all of your payment cards and, when swiped, can act like any of the cards it knows about. Maybe click over to the page linked above and watch the excellent Sandwich video.
Let me start by saying that I think it’s really great that people are taking steps to alleviate the fat wallet problem. Heck, I hadn’t carried a wallet for years and only just recently bought a Supr Slim wallet. Products like Coin and the Supr Slim are designed to solve a problem with which I can absolutely empathize.
That said, I think Coin is in for some challenges.
