Thriftway Pay By Touch Trial goes well

According to, "Thriftway supermarkets has plans to spread its Pay By Touch system to other outlets. When a customer registers with the system, his fingerprint is linked up to his debit account. This allows him to pay for all future grocery trips by simply holding his finger up to a biometric sensor."

A little too Big Brother for my tastes, but I understand that this is the direction that self-service is moving in right now. I can only vote with my wallet, right? :)

Here's the story.
