".... frictionless spending is why my Kindle is loaded with quarter-read books on topics that interested me for 30 minutes once. Friction keeps you frugal."

Interesting point from the article:

"...cashlessness seems to be associated with increased dishonesty: it's easier to cut ethical corners involving money, while continuing to think of yourself as an honest person, when you're psychologically distanced from the money involved."

Perhaps true, but I just don't like a jingle when I walk or a wad in my pocket, so I'll suffer the temptation to be more dishonest... no double entendres intended.
