    Like you I've seen it first hand and witnessed the whole area erupt like a fireball during a storm in Phuket. Very frightning. Imagine if that was here in Australia?

        Amazing that it works and how is it ever maintained. I've seen similar, but not quite as crazy, in South Korea where they have plenty of high-technology and excellent high-speed internet.

        Although their point-of-sale systems seem to be signature- based with no PINs, contactless cards or phone-pay.
