Piggly Wiggly simplifies payment to the touch of a finger

I saw this over the weekend and I think it's cool.  From what I can tell, they don't keep a picture of your fingerprint, just a CRClike number based on your finger.  They have been testing it for a while near the coast and things have worked well.  I will enjoy not having to reach for the wallet/check book.

Technology is going to the grocery store as Piggly Wiggly is introducing shoppers in South Carolina and Georgia to the Pay By Touch system, a payment method that only requires the touch of a finger.
