Pay for Burgers and Rail Tickets with Mobile Phones

Top stories


Japan’s NTT DoCoMo has partnered with McDonald’s to allow patrons to pay for their fast food with their mobiles. If this is successful, it’s expected to expand to other Japanese offerings. A similar project to allow UK train goers to buy rail tickets from YourRail allows you to buy a ticket online, which generates a bar code that goes in your mobile. Your mobile can then be scanned at the rail station, cutting out the ticket entirely. [GT]
