End of the line for the supermarket checkout?

Can you imagine popping into a supermarket, picking up what you want from the shelves then marching out again without so much as breaking your stride? Well that day is just around the corner.

Sainsbury’s has come up with an app that could finally kill off the drudgery of standing in a checkout queue to pay for your shopping.

The cost of the goods will be deducted directly from their bank account or credit card via their phone.  Full story...
