I seen on CNN today that Piggly Wiggly is using Biometrics in their stores now.

Biometrics is where they use your finger print or eye scan or voice scan to dientify who you are.

You can go into the Piggly Wiggly (a grocery store) and setup your index finger on this computer with your credit card/debit card/checking account info. Then when you go thru the check out to buy something, you just slap your finger on this reader and it is just as you whipped out the card or wrote a check.

Way easier and faster...but what do you guys think of this???

Looks like they are a rip off of WB porky the pig. :lol: But I've been to these stores before, your basic grocery store..nothing special really. But the name is pretty whacked if you ask me. ;)

It's not just a southern thing, we have one here in newcastle. More of a run down, not so convienient store than a grocery store if you ask me.

That's always been my take on Piggly Wiggly...a run down store. I've been in them down south and they haven't been anything special....more like a dumpy store....something like you might find in FLINT!!!!!! Anyway, I hate the idea. What's coming next is you'll have to scan your finger print everywhere and eventually it will become a way for the government to track our every move....I'm totally against it.

I like the technology. My brother-in-law has a biometric lock on this house. To get in, he "authenticates" his fingerprint. Very cool stuff.

Publix has the best fresh produce and Winn Dixie has the best meat. Food Lion is basically out of business here and most of the stores are being bought out by Harveys. CVS has bought Eckerds. As for your side note, it was 65 and sunny this afternoon...At least it sucks having a tan, eh?

The idea's ok, but I would never use it. I mean the technology is awesome, and it's the best way to prevent identity theft, but I'm not going to give out any more info about myself than I have to. The government already has too much power. And eventually I'm sure some genious is going to find a way to hack into it, and next thing you know, you're being framed for murder. No thank you! :here:
