This definitely falls into our Weird Combo of the Day category. It seems Japan's two largest and highly unrelated companies have joined forces. Japan cellphone giant, NTT DoCoMo is teaming up with the always (not) delicious McDonalds restaurant. No, it won't be McDonalds-branded cellphones, but this agreement with promote DoCoMo's IC-card e-cash system in McDonalds restaurants. If you are part of Japan's McDonalds "membership club" (??) you can begin paying for food using your cellphone's contactless IC card system. Now you can just swipe your phone to receive a heart-attack, to go.
