Digital growth - finger vein recognition on phones etc

Hitachi tells me that they will be able by 2008 to put finger vein recognition into phones, which means we can have ultra-secure payment systems using mobiles.  As for watching TV on phones – a little like hard work unless the screen is large enough.  Having said that, a friend of mine was travelling recently and realised a good proportion of people on the train were watching video clips on their phones (Japan).


Combine it with Slingbox and you can watch on your phone wherever you are in the world whatever is on your TV system at home, and change channels as well.
