Just been having a think and I was wondering, with all the chip and pin technology out now, I was wondering if credit card companies could ever run out of credit card numbers?
Millions of them must be in circulation and I can't seen two card numbers ever being the same with different start dates, so how would they tackle this problem if it ever come about?
maybe add another number? but surely this would have to be implemented onto existing systems and cost the earth.
Another thought also is why can't home users (like us all) have some kind of credit/debit card reader that saves the hassle of typing the details every time we buy something on line and running the risk of having key loggers or other nasties out there.
Shops have em, so why can't we? Surely it would take the time out of ordering online.
