NFC is for Real for PayPal now

PayPal has just announced a P2P (Peer-to-Peer) app that allows users with NFC-equipped phones to initiate money transactions by tapping, or bumping:
PayPal Releases App for NFC P2P Payment Service
PayPal has been viewed by many as pouring cold water over NFC-based ePayment system (maybe because of its on-going litigation war with Google?!), so maybe this is a signal that NFC is for real for them now.
BTW, NFCTimes and NFCWorld are two good sources for NFC-related news. while NFCRumors, as its name suggests, often supplements real reporting with juicy rumors to entice your NFC-hungry taste buds (however, there has been no activity at this site for the past few weeks; not sure what happened).
