Google Wallet Launches a Cloud Version With Any Card

Google Wallet Launches a Cloud Version With Any Card [googlecommerce.blogspot.co.uk]
Today we’re releasing a new, cloud-based version of the Google Wallet app that supports all credit and debit cards from Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. Now, you can use any card when you shop in-store or online with Google Wallet. With the new version, you can also remotely disable your mobile wallet app from your Google Wallet account on the web.

I chatted with my bank online about the GW and they are not aware of it.
So I'm thinking that personally there could be exposure if my account were used fradulently. Meaning that I wouldn't get my money back or the charge reversed. It's an International Bank too.

Lots of banks are well advanced in their thinking on digital wallets and some have made small implementations already. I haven't noted any stories about fraud where the bank has not reimbursed their customer. (Not saying they don't exist, but most cases that reach the news say that the customer has been reimbursed.)

cool thought, but scary reality... just imagine someone getting a hold of one of your devices and heaven forbid they are a talented hacker...

When did "cloud-based" begin to mean "your payment info is stored on a Google server"?

If it were truly cloud-based, I could pay using my friends phone or laptop (running any OS), without having to install and authenticate an "app".

This is nothing more than an Android app for Google's failed "Google Checkout" experiment.
