OK, it could be me (I don't think it is).

Simple question, WTF is thing all about? I have lots of credit cards
(are they smart? No idea).
I know what to do with them. I think this thing is different, so my

Why should I be interested, what can it do (especially as it
costs....?80 Euro with reader?)

As if you are talking to your little sister (big sister, anyone one
non-geek :-) tell me (us)
what it offers?

I'll shut up now <sorry/>
