>Sweet God. I'm not reading any more of that patent. It could easily be
used against practically every shop in the country with one of those
little keypads for credit for prepaid phones (input device is a keypad,
recording device is a receipt). I reckon, at a stretch, it could
probably be used against ATM's aswell.
