The Future Arrives, Unassumingly, on a Wednesday in My Tertiary E-mail

This is just extraordinarily exciting:
PayPal Mobile:
Send money to friends and family

Send money securely, anytime, from wherever you are. You don’t need cash or a check – just your phone.

After you activate your phone, you can send money one of two ways:
  • Text to 729725 (PAYPAL) with the amount and recipient’s phone number.

    Example: send 5 to 4150001234
    Or

  • Call 1-800-4PAYPAL (1-800-472-9725) and follow the instructions.
Buy stuff with your phone

Buy it when you see it. Where you see Text to Buy – on a poster, in a magazine, at an event – just order the item securely by text message
Really. No, really. The world just changed. The long-rumored [near-] obsolescence of paper money is really, actually, truly possibly, now. It's not so much that this is a great thing - though I think on balance it's pretty great - as that it's a huge change. HUGE. And about to happen, right about...now. Very exciting.

Comments:
What's really amazing is that you read the PayPal website.
