ON THE WEB
- Why do new chip cards take so long? - Chicago Tribune - "The delay is due to the added security features, the primary reason for using the technology. Specifically, the chip in the card is generating a unique encrypted message between the store and the bank's network."
- Chip Cards Cause Headaches at Stores Across America - Bloomberg - "A majority of credit cards in the U.S. now contain a chip designed to add more security -- yet most payment terminals at retailers can’t read the new technology. And the situation isn’t going to improve anytime soon."
ON THE WIRES
