Curious to know if there are any apps for payments of parking meters. Fully aware that payments of bills can be done but it seems like there are credit card type transactions that could be done thru BBN where BBN can collect a Visa like fee. This would mean changing the strategy of BBN but if a WW focused efort were employed the added income of BBN could be substantial. It was my understanding that Paris had an agree with Nokia that enabled parking meters to be paid thru an infared connection. There are better ways now but the concept is the same. A major user benefit would be that the time used is the time paid for vs current methods where tickets are bought and the amounts paid are usually more than used. I am sure there are other similar applications.
