Did we just take the ultimate step towards the cashless world we seem to be headed toward?  Kids getting their pocket money via an app… New Zealand bank, ASB have introduced a piggy bank (that’s actually an elephant) and an app through which parents can pay their children. This is clever, but also a little sad – no coins jingling in your piggy bank, no counting your money over and over again hoping it would add up to more, no ‘borrowing’ a few pennies.
