Technology. It will be the death of us for certain, but in the meantime it keeps serving up wonders and glorious gadgets. I learned just recently about carrying coupons around in your cell phone and using them at cash registers. Now I read that the hotel key cards that replaced regular ole keys are on their way out. They will probably be replaced by a cell phone app. When guests check in through this app, they get their room number and the ability to open their door via their cell phone. You don't have to even go to the front desk because sensors in your room's door will recognize your phone. Reason we don't have widespread use of this right now is the hotels don't want to cough up the cash it'll take to transition. Don't they know there's a recovery on? Ha.
