You do know that Google Wallet doesn't transmit NFC wallet data unless you enter your pin code to initiate the sale AND the screen is on. While the phone is dormant and in your pocket it's not giving up anything.
So today you've given out more credit card data to more people than I would if I made 100 transactions with GW.
How about those odds?

I don't understand all the phone thefts anyway. Once the ESN is declared bad it's freaking useless. Guess it's still useable as an mp3 player and for WIFI features.
Anyway, until there's more widespread marketing of digital wallets & NFC is a standard feature of all phones--which is happening over time--this will continue being a novelty method of payment.
As to losing your phone, that's on you =p Never lost a wallet or a phone but if it happens I'll survive. Remote wiping is your friend. Not sure what the talk is about beating someone home and changing the pin before they can do anything. The better remote features are not connected to the phone's built-in security, and Cerberus and Avast can both survive a full data reset and SBF.
