    "With so many credit cards opting to use the chip now, I wanted to learn about why the magnetic strip was such a bad idea, seeing as it had been used for decades. I went to Authorize.net's page, which was very comprehensive, but a bit on the technical side. There as a lot of information, but not exactly what I was looking for."

    "The stripe on a credit card is very important for the use of the credit card. Without it the card won't work and it's actually really interesting about how it works and the technology that is being used to pull it off. The website shown has a great article that talks all about these details and it's very interesting!"
