Are chip and PIN credit cards coming? []

Friday, February 12, 2010 - 2:12 PM
Chip and PIN replaces the credit card system we're used to -- swiping a magnetic strip and signing a receipt -- with a new generation of card readers that scan a tiny chip activated by a personal identification number, or PIN.
I'm not sure if I would like these kind of credit cards. It's a little more secure, but you have to remember another PIN. Based on the article, we in the US won't have to worry about these new credit cards.
