Thin Clients, VDI and Linux integration from the front lines.... Raw and sometimes unedited notes based on my experiences with VMware, Thin Clients, Linux etc.

So both of these stories have come to light from Engadget:
It's interesting to see that NYC Subway will be getting RFID Passes soon? I'd personally say my experience on the London Underground has been very good, and I'll be glad when they can expand it to cover the Rail Network as well

"Select customers" to trial RFID NYC subway pass

We were a bit wary when we first got an offer for an RFID credit card, but we're defintely gonna fight tooth-and-nail to become the few, the proud, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority "selected customers" who will be involved in a six-month trial for contactless NYC subway payment/entry. The MTA is teaming up with Citigroup and Mastercard to implement a version of MasterCard's PayPass system, which in a lucky coincidence for MasterCard, will also allow people to use their new passes at McDonald's, 7-11, and other such profitable locations. And to save our foreign readers precious commenting time, we already know that you all have had systems like this for 25 years now and compared to Europe/Asia/Canada the US is still in the technological Stone Age.
But of even more interest to me was this news of how small they are now down to.... check out the size of these little fellas....
