I'd rather use plastic or cash than CurrentC. The whole idea was to make paying for things both easier and more secure. All CurrentC does is incorporate your smart phone into the process which they actually then make more difficult than using a card. » 10/29/14 2:30am Wednesday 2:30am

How is creating a system that allows consumers to choose between options "corporate greed"?
