Smartphones aren't tiny PCs, but that's how we use them in the West


Paying for fuel

Shell, here in the UK, have a phone app that lets you use Paypal to fill your car.

Each pump on every one of their forecourts has its own QR code, which tells the company which pump you've used, and therefore how much to charge you.

Which is weird, as petrol stations generally also have a sign telling you to NOT use your phone!
