Serious Advice from the Crazy World

I've been using this chip and pin thing for a while now to buy stuff. It seems to work fine. But I don't like tapping out my ultra secret number on the keypad for all to see. I know that they have a little plastic guard thingy, but I know about long lenses and tiny cameras.

So here is my tip to keep you PIN secret. Rather than tap the number out with one finger; lay your fingers over the numbers as you would piano keys. Then press each one with a different finger. I reckon it is virtually impossible for someone who is watching to see the much smaller movements that you make now. You might get an odd look from the cashier (mind you, I'm used to odd looks) but there is a much smaller chance of your number being stolen.
