The bank have sent me a new debit card with "paypass" contactless technology in it. Naturally, if there is something which should NOT have contactless technology, it's my debit card. I have therefore called them and asked them to re-issue me a card without this technology. If I want anyone to read my debit card, I'll put it in a reader.

Those interested in security, cryptography and contactless readers may have seen the hack of mifare (Oyster, etc) posted at CCC, video is at http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=4252367680974396650&hl=en

Also, I believe some of our London colleagues have done considerable work with extending the range of readers (Hi, if you want to be named, let me know and I'll edit later)
