    Didn't catch that. So there I am in the grocery store, and all of a sudden my coin goes dead and now I can't buy my Cookie Crisp because every card goes down the drain at the same time? Hmmm.

    I read that they are working on maybe developing some way to charge them. Coin comes out in summer 2014 and I'm sure by summer 2016, there will be better options/more competition so that's not a big deal to me.

    What if it gets stolen? Dude gets all your cards in one go?
    If it's separated from your phone for a user-adjustable amount of time, it deactivates itself.

    I also think that this only shows the last 4 digits of any card, not the full 16.

    German police have arrested two people suspected of illegally generating Bitcoins worth nearly $1 million.
    Bitcoins are an unregulated, virtual currency that is stored in password-protected electronic "wallets" and used to make purchases on the Internet and at some brick-and-mortar businesses. The currency also is traded in online exchanges, where its value fluctuates widely.
    Prosecutors in the German town of Kempten said they are investigating whether people used software to create digital Bitcoins worth 700,000 euros, about $950,000, Bloomberg News reported.

    Bitcoin is different from this Coin credit card, but it's really interesting how the value of bitcoin has gone up so high lately. I've been reading a lot about it. Supposedly the Vinklevoss twins (guys that sued facebook's founders) bought up a ton of these early on. I also read an article about a guy that accidently threw out a hard drive that had the address of $7.5M worth of bitcoins. Not sure how true that is though.
