  1. Very interesting article on the EMV chips, but a little alarmist in the headline you posted. From the article:

    “It appears with these attacks that the crooks aren’t breaking the EMV protocol, but taking advantage of bad implementations of it.”

  2. Just found something interesting re: the DCA parking reservations.

    On November 1st, rates are going up at the daily garages from $22/day to $25/day. However, the ePark system is still only charging $22/day for the dates in November and December I’m looking at. So, decent way to save a few bucks.

  3. I am a Diamond and just tried booking a room without all the required points in my account. Agent said she could not do it. She said she could let me go negative for about 1000 points but not 15000. I am guessing there may be a limit or i need to hang up and try calling again.
