The writing was on the wall when Westminster started getting rid of its cash parking meters in favour of the gruesomely complicated 'pay by mobile' system. It's not going to be a completely comfortable transition but in 5 years time I bet almost no one in London will be carrying loose change. Bad news for buskers...

Also dying: the cheque, which from today is no longer welcome at Tesco. On the other hand, the usage data implies that adults use 40 cheques a year (1.6 billion cheques / 40 million adults), which means someone else got 38 of my allocation last year. Mind you, when asked about this on Radio 4's The Bottom Line, two out of the three guests had written a cheque that day.
