A great ad for Paypal's iPhone app (which doesn't need NFC)

This ad shows two people exchanging money through the Paypal iPhone app with Bump technology, an innovative way around some of the needs for NFC.

NFC still holds a major advantage over Bump technology - with NFC, there is no need to confirm that the match between the two phones is correct, and there is no risk of delays due to pairing errors or uncertainties. Still, this is a wonderful example of innovation.

I wonder if there is some way for a payment terminal to also register a bump, so I can bump my iPhone at the POS and pay without a card.
