As awesome as this would be, I think it'd be a little extreme for the corperate business world.

I just had a chip so salty that my next sip of water (which was hastily attempted) tasted exactly like the last time I went swimming in the ocean. Maybe this is what I get for buying Wise "Dipsy Doodles" Corn Chips.

I can't wait until this kind of tech becomes more widespread. I can see a lot of cool projects coming out of this if NFC ends up becoming well adopted.
I worked on a patch to enable profile switching using NFC tags with CM9, and it's now merged. This will be available in the upcoming builds for NFC enabled devices such as the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S. Here's how it works..

1. Set up the profiles you like. A profile that I often use is a "Car" profile which disables the lockscreen.
2. Put a tag in this location (e.g. your car).
3. Select "Profile settings" then touch the settings icon for the profile you want to be able to toggle.
4. Touch the NFC icon on the bottom left.
5. You'll then be prompted to touch the phone to the tag you want to write. Hold the phone to the tag to write the profile information to it.

That's it. You can now simply tap your phone on this tag (when you get into your car) to enable the profile. Tapping it a second time will restore the previous profile (when you get out of your car).

Note that you need to unlock the device first, as with any other NFC code.

I wonder what kind of effect this will have on Rochester Institute of Tech. Can you still be a big photo school once the in-town photo giant has fallen?
Kodak files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
Rochester, N.Y., USA

Thu Jan 19, 12:32 a.m. EST: +MarketWatch reports that Eastman +Kodak Co. has announced that it and its U.S. subsidiaries filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

The firm said the move "is intended to bolster liquidity in the U.S. and abroad, monetize non-strategic intellectual property, fairly resolve legacy liabilities, and enable the company to focus on its most valuable business lines." It said it would still pay employee wages and benefits and continue customer programs.
