Thanks for sharing.
The Fuze card looks slick and definitely has pros, but it also has some cons as well (just like any card does).
-NFC vs chip/dip looks cool, but I'm old school and don't want to have to foil-protect (Faraday cage) my leather wallet from someone scanning my ass (where my wallet is) and taking my funds.
-Battery lasts about a month and needs to be recharged regularly. Great, yet another thing to have to charge up before I leave home. If not, that could make for some odd negotiations on a date: "Honey, do you have any money? My wallet just died" LOL
-Remote wiping/deleting does look cool, but I'm not too concerned with that as I'd never put more on the card than I expect to spend while out. Why put more than you need when you can load it up at home when needed in seconds.
Just my random thoughts.
I definitely agree with you about not liking NFC and not wanting to worry about having to charge the card up before going out. But a similar recharge problem would apply to having to "reload" the card with the right amount of RDX before I leave the house. What if the dinner costs more than expected, or we want to go shopping afterward? Using a pre-loaded card isn't quite the same as a credit card.
Top it up from your phone perhaps? :-D
Takes about 200ms currently haha (ignoring getting phone out etc)
