I live in a small town in Missouri, with a population of fewer than 10,000 people. Technological progress is fairly slow here. Heck, we even had party lines until 19 years ago. Our agriculturally-based community seems the least likely place in America to experience digital pick-pocketing. However, my 20-year-old son recently had to put a stop to his debit card, twice, in the same month. Some jerk got access to it at our local WalMart, by wirelessly skimming the card in his wallet. Apparently, progress in thievery moves right along with technology.
A wallet is one of the most important personal items to carry. In keeping with advancements in digital crime, people who want to prevent theft of their debit and credit card info can opt for a smart wallet. There are plenty of options to choose from, and The Gadgeteer recently reviewed Ekster’s Parliament Tracker wallet.
The design of the wallet is built around a card slider system for storing and dispensing your cards. It’s a box that offers RFID/NFC blocking and is designed to hold 4-6 cards (depending on thickness). Push the thumb lever on the bottom of the wallet and your cards slide out, presented in a fan-like formation so that you can pick the card you need.
Buy your blasters, blaster parts, and ammunition at dealer cost.
Another handy accessory that Ekster offers for their smart wallet is the customized tracking card, in case your wallet is stolen or lost. It utilizes TrackR technology, fits into the rear card pocket of the wallet, and acts as a beacon that you can locate using a smartphone app. It’s about the size of a thick business card, is removable and runs on solar energy. Three hours of light exposure will charge it for a full month.
