    I've lost a 512MB card but it's probably in luggage or obscure computer bag pocket or something. Would be nice to have a phone that has an RFID scanner in it.

    A blatant invasion of privacy. I do not wish to have my movements tracked by a generic corporate structure. To me it's worth the $30 to buy a new one rather than surpress my freedoms more than they already have. Hope you backed up that data to another medium.

    I dream in code and TCP/IP sequence numbers.

    rfid is very flexible. it's entirely possible to add an rfid tag that does absolutely nothing more than say "i'm an SD card. here i am". no other identifiable info on it, and nothing tying it to you, specifically.

    Very cool, and for a different application. Contactless? For ID purposes or for data transfer as well?

    I just want to be able to find my cards. Now if the phone could just scan RFID tags.

    Mr. Paranoid in post 2, RFID tags can also be used w/out invasion of privacy.
