is there an app for receipts e.g. one that automatically deletes the receipt in 3 weeks? i hate paper receipts. they're irritating but if you need to return something for a refund, well, you need them

Not that I'm aware of. How would you expect it to work?

good question. i would say shops can offer it, however, out of fairness to overworked cashiers, the businesses shouldn't command the cashiers to ask every customer if they'd like an "e-ceipt".. it should be the customer's responsibility to research whether the shop offers the "e-ceipt" option and to ask for one before (or as soon as) check-out begins. when 21 days pass, the "e-ceipt" vanishes. or you can manually make it longer than 21 days e.g. 180 days or however long you wish. the cashiers can wear a pin-on metal button that says "We now offer E-ceipts!"

There's a technology that is already out in Japan, and is available on the Sprint Nexus S phone. It's called NFC, and basically will allow you to make purchases with your cell phone. It uses short distance radio waves to communicate with the POS device. Similar to the tap n go credit cards. I'd imagine that this could easily include electronic receipts.

Mobile payment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ofcourse, we're not there yet. But it's something to look forward to.

IPv6 is already implemented in modern hardware and software, along with many services including Comcast and FIOS. Both of which will be participating in the June 8 IPv6 hot test.

There are scanner apps that basically just take a photo and saves it to PDF. On Android it's called "Portable Scanner".
