FINALLY: Paying with a wave of the Phone.

Starbucks just released something really special today in all US company-operated stores... and it is NOT the Grande Frap-AlPacino or another John Mayer mix CD. 
Mobile payments at Starbucks were previously available via third-party apps and with Blackberries, but now the famous barista is offering an official payment iPhone App that allows you to pay for your caffeine-fix just by waving your phone. Just download the app, input your Starbucks Card info and WALA a virtual scannable barcode... to buy whatever you want, 'cuz the future is NOW!!! how 'bout that Mayer CD?
Someone out there give it a try and let us know how it works...! If it doesn't work at that particular Starbucks, try again with the other one across the street....
