A wave of the hand and you'll get a burrito ...

Fast food will be getting even faster at Taco Bell. The company plans to test the MasterCard PayPass system at its 1,300 company-owned restaurants and other franchise locations nationwide. About 100 Taco Bell stores would begin accepting the PayPass system by Q4 2007, with added stores joining the systems throughout 2008.
Customers won't have to get crazy with giving cash or their credit card to a cashier — they'll just have to wave their PayPass-enabled card or device near the PayPass reader. Taco Bell said purchases under $25 will not require the customer to sign a receipt (and that's pretty much every order at Taco Bell — $25 would buy a lot of tacos).
