At it's essence wouldn't the Apple Watch itself be an expensive iBeacon? Not what I was originally referring to of course..
Very nice write-up Soli. The first time I've seen it explained so clearly.EDIT: That brings up one question, and you probably know the answer. I remember some mention during an Apple interview of iBeacons, Bluetooth/NFC and the Apple Watch but can't remember the exact context. Would using an Apple Watch (or iPhone with Apple Pay), then make you potentially "indentifiable" to a retailers beacons? If so could that be the sugar to make it palatable to some of the big...

IMO with Apple now committed to mobile payments, and with a secure framework that the processors and banks are comfortable with, other mobile platforms will soon become part of the same payment canvas too. There was never going to be a general consensus until Apple was on board with their millions of dedicated users. Now the others like Android and WinMo, Verizon and PayPal, will be forced into playing by the same rules and using the same secure token methods. They really...
While some might think this Burger King promotion was a series of simple mistakes it still seems terribly apropo considering Samsung copyist claims. LOL!http://tinyurl.com/n6bl57h
