Cards Carry All
of us who use ATM and credit cards know how smart a little plastic
card with a magnetic stripe can be. But plastic cards are getting
smarter. A smart card contains an integrated circuit chip with a
microprocessor and memory. They are portable databases that government

Center in Washington, DC, in September 1998. The Center demonstrates
one card storing everything from "cash" to fingerprints to medical
and dental records.
