It's like a little rear seat video studio. The perp may think they're on TV.

dijapan, I couldn't agree more.

In the states, I've been able to use a credit card or my bank debit card to pay for just about everything for a long time. They're accepted almost everywhere now, from small convenience stores to fast food restaurants to car dealerships and everywhere in between.

It's hard to take a retailer seriously if they don't have a credit/debit card processing machine. It's made more convenient for the retailer because they both use the same network now (debit cards that carry Visa/MC logos use those networks to process transactions, cutting down on overhead for the business).

Ultradude- Because transactions are more reliable and easier for their clearinghouses to process, banks love them. They encourage the cards' use by making customers completely non-liable for unauthorized use in the event of theft or loss of the card.

I seriously don't understand why Japan, the country with the fastest data connections in the world, is still so reliant on paper money.

seansezso: Thanks. I was trying to figure out what word was being imitated here. I wish they'd printed it in katakana, as well as English.
