This is a Local Chip, and a Local PIN

The nice lady in the village Post Office told me that they now take debit cards for payment of things like Road Tax and pointed to the chip and pin pad on the counter.

Even more scary, she had a scanner to read the bar codes on the forms.

The rate of technological innovation here is quite scary. Given how desparate the Post Office is for money, I'm sure they'll soon be offering to "Enlarge your member" or "Cheap Pharmaceuticals" now that they have entered the Internet Age.
