Want to buy that full-size spare on tires.com? swipe your card

Want to have that snowglobe of Des Moines next-day aired from monkey.com? swipe your card

       Baked too, for American Express's 'smart' card. <Smarter if you don't use it.>   

       It has a chip on it that contains passwords and addresses and stuff, and comes with a little widget you plug into the computer. When you want to buy something, you put your card in and it's supposed to fill out the order form itself.   

       Me, they ripped me off once already, I'm not about to trust them with anything else.

       I see these all the time, though mostly behind shop counters. Some have been around long enough to look grungy and used, whatever that means.

       Hmm... sounds sorta like mysmart.com [it's a smartchip reader rather than a magstripe reader, and it's built into the mousepad rather than the keyboard].

       Closest thing I've seen is the "Gator" download - stores all personal details for you, including credit cards, and fills in relevant boxes with a mouse-click.

       Baked also by Compaq, which has a swipe card at the top of one of its keyboards that takes smart cards. I'll see if I can find it.

       Definetly baked, fishbone for this one. I make them so i know they have been around for around 2 yrs.

       raisin, what would be any different between the ones they use in the store and your idea? this is so baked i think it should be MFD.
