SWIPE vs. INSERT CARD...

Yesterday I received a letter from my bank informing me that they're now changing to microchipped VISA Debit cards whenever my current card expires instead of the old school magnetic swipe cards.
Now I've had one of these chipped cards before with another bank and to be totally honest, I found them a little annoying because it seemed like the technology involved wasn't quite up to where it needed to be even though many people would say "microchip cards are TOTALLY better!".

It seems as though I'm not the only one who shares this frustration of inserting my card only to be told that the chip read had failed time and time again - Check out this rant from YouTuber Toby Turner A.K.A Tobuscus... He sums it all up perfectly:
