Do you believe that mobile money is the new credit card?

Gizmodo even reports that you can make mobile payments for your
Starbucks drinks  using your cellphone's BlackBerry or iOS Starbucks
All you have to do is load up your Starbucks Card, download an app,
and let your favorite barista scan a barcode generated by that app
when paying for something.
I wonder though when will this Starbucks app be available here in Asia?
The rest of the world have to wait, though, as this  particular
payment option is offered only  in all US company-operated stores for
now  :(
Cashless, hassle-free.  Here in the Philippines, more and more people
are using their cellphones as medium for money transfer. I've used
GCash and Smart once or twice to send money in the province. Just
don't let snatchers or the local "mandurukot" grab your phones LOL.
