How about theft of services, invasion of privacy and some hard time in prison?
Set a precedent right now or we all get raped.

// apparently, it's hard to find a pic of him making a weird face (even though it's a full third of his Soap screentime) in 2 minutes

They didn't "learn" the last time it happened to them, why would now be any different?

I'm going to Target less often, and only paying cash, so I'm really getting a kick out of these replies.

A lot of hand wringing and mea culpa.  But in the end it's just the cost of doing business, they're not going to change the way thinbgs are done, and Congress can't make them.

Yes they can. The Feds have mandated debit card fees and so they can mandate Chip and PIN.

The latter is probably going to happen and they will probably do some kind of end merchant tax credit to pay for it.

"I'm really sorry I stole hundreds of millions of dollars from people, I promise I won't do it again" works again, and again and again and.......................again

Why do we want chip and PIN? Won't that just mean when someone gets your PIN, you are on the hook for the charges?
