One day, we’ll all be paying for things with our phones, and NFC is the ticket to that future.
From the linked article:
"NFC (Near-Field Communication) allows two devices placed within a few centimeters of eachother to exchange data. In order for this to work, both devices must be equipped with an NFC chip."
Like those kewl commercials where people share photos just by holding their phones close to eachother. Or, for iPhone, the AirDrop™ feature.
NPR recently covered the story of Teodor Currentzis’ journey towards recording the most overly performed opera ever (link below). Needless to say, it’s a pretty cool story about the composer and one particular instrument that’s like hundreds of years old he’s hoping to own one day. In the meantime, he’s leasing it, which is kind of hilarious. All for the name of preserving music. Found the recording on Spotify as well.
