Looking at Swatch Pay over NFC

1 min read

Looked at Swatch Pay in the local Swatch Store. Promising idea, but German banks still have issues trusting the NFC payment system as my private credit card is not supported and I need to register for a WireCard Boon virtual credit card in order to be able to use Swatch Pay. Unverified I can only top off the card up to €100 per month. The virtual debet card needs to be filled with money for this to work. Not super hassle free... and for now Boon is free, but for how long? How are they making any money out of all of this? And the Boon Terms and Conditions are not to be messed around with.

Had a great weekend with my little family. I'm absolutely exhausted.

If you ever feel like buying me a present, the Leuchtturm Notebooks are a good idea!

The price seems rising every time I open their website; currently it is set at €17,50.

Love it that when you really want to quit Lynx, (yes, the text-only browser), you type capital Q and if you type a small q, then it will ask for confirmation, like if you didn't mean it or something.

Even though I enjoy some of other people’s posts on twitter, browsing through my feed aimlessly is tiring and numbing as the topics of the tweets are so wildly diversified, my brain is melting. And I basically can’t remember any of it any more after fifteen minutes.

Had a good time at the company Christmas party last night. Great to see colleagues again who are at customer locations most of the time. And the food was good!

Overal, the Nokia 8110 4g experience has been very disappointing. The software really is unfinished and now the SDcard slot seems to be broken. It's only good for placing and receiving calls. Nothing a €16 phone couldn't do as well.
