UK ID cards to be upgraded to super ID cards

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 4 years ago

An anonymous reader writes "Gadget lovers are used to punishing upgrade cycles but now it seems that the British ID card could be replaced with a "super" ID card just a couple of years after the first one was released. The new card could be used to buy goods or services online or to prove identity over the web. It's a bit of a kick in the teeth for the people who have already paid £30 for a 1st gen card that can't do any of these things."
