Just what is wrong with a magnetic strip card? Why do the cards HAVE to be RFID?

That's even a cheaper and more effective solution...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if we were to use magnetic readers, we wouldn't be able to keep our access cards in our wallets, along with our credit/debit cards, and scan the card without taking it out of our wallet.

No, you are correct.

There are other ways to solve that convenience problem, but I guess it will never be as convenient. But like with any PC security, the more secure, the less convenient in some manner*.

*DailyTech can quote me on that. If Rush can be quoted, I can too :p
