In the past year we’ve been hearing a lot about making payments via cellphone and a recent patent application from Google means it might happen sooner than you think. The patent describes a system in which you can pay simply by texting the sum to a processing server.

This needs to be picked up by PayPal or this whole plot will go the way of Gtalk.
