    So I was at Starbucks today and it was the first time since I got my Band. When I went to pay, as I held out my wrist, the girl at the counter seemed almost surprised and was like "Alright, that's awesome. That's like the coolest thing I've ever seen!". Just a cool story and another reason why I think I'm going to keep the Band. Anything to get Starbucks in my hand quicker ;). The Starbucks integration is a great partnership from Microsoft.

    Maybe Microsoft could enable nfc in the next version and compete with Apple pay

    I've been thinking that since day one of the Band's release, and have it integrate with SoftCard

    Wouldn't softcard necessitate a SIM?

    Well yeah, but I mean it could integrate with the SoftCard app on your phone, not have SoftCard directly on the Band

    I'd like that as well. If WP improves NFC access to phone settings you could even do more with it, see this request on uservoice.
