Checking in with your cell phone


The NY Times published an article on Monday about how “paper is out, cellphones are in.”  The article talks about how Continental is piloting a program where they will check you in by scanning a barcode from your mobile device. As someone who would lose her head if it weren’t attached, I am very excited about this. I’m always fumbling for my boarding pass, trying to board with the wrong one, and more importantly am interested in living with as little paper as possible. I think this is a logical and exciting development for the airline industry, and one that makes perfect sense given the prominence that mobile plays in our lives.

Hope Felix doesn’t get mad that I posted without a boarding pass!

    Not mad – but I really do hope that this technology becomes available – especially to those people that lose things (like their wallets) all the time.
