Cubic is rolling out the exact same thing out in Vancouver BC (Compass card), but CC's aren't accepted at the tap-in points yet (might not be for a while.)I have a feeling that the tokenisation is by design in this case. Someone who regularly rides the Tube (or Skytrain in Vancouver) would be using their Oyster/Compass card that is already linked to their Credit Card by the transit company. Guests (Eg tourists) would likely be taking 1-way trips and this would not be an...
Actually what Apple should be doing is "tick-tocking" between the Air and the Mini. eg Release a new iPad Air with the same generation CPU/GPU as the iPhone, the following year, put the iPhone "S" parts in the Mini for that year, third year, release the next "numbered" iPad Air, etc.Like selling both the Air and the Mini as "new" for that year is likely "cannibalizing" sales as people are seeing them the same way they see the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6, eg they are seeing...
The Apple Pay system is not entirely unique. Essentially the only part that makes it "Apple Pay" and not something else is how the Secure Element works.The current alternative "Softcard (formerly known as ISIS)" has been bought by Google, relies on Host Card Emulation. LoopPay is closer to in "theory" to what looks like Apple Pay (contactlesss) payments (and was ... and still is marketed as Apple-only) and isn't secure at all because it stores the card information on the...

That is exactly what it is. The "MST" works in exactly the opposite way the Square Reader works (which converts the swipe to a "sound" to the device.) The technology has been around since the 1920's, you might also know it as "Magnetic Tape"Move a piece of magneticly charged film over a magnetic pickup = sound/data. MST "plays" the sound at the magnetic reader head which is picked up as if a swipe had taken place. The movement is against a stationary head. So what if you...
There is a difference between "I wish to pay by presence" vs "I wish to pay without presence"Like, the "think of the jobs" people would be wanting us to use mobile phones to create a money-withdrawal ticket at an ATM, take the physical cash to a retailer and insert the exact amount in bills and change into a machine that puts cash directly into a safe and to properly count the money so they don't need to carry change. It would exist entirely to keep Brinks employees...
The Z170 chipset doesn't support USB 3.1, and neither do any of the other 100-series chipsets. So an extra chip has to be provided just to support one USB 3.1.
People aren't that stupid What data tracking suggests is that there are devices "marked" as such iPhones, but unless they are coming from known Apple IP addresses or ISP's that Apple employees use, they could probably be dismissed as spoofs.It's not unprecedented to have people spoof potential user agents precisely to determine if a website "knows" about a future device.
And once users start blocking ads, that number will be ambiguous as the trackers used to get that information will no longer work and be of dubious value.Google Analytics, gone. Quantserve, gone.As for how much revenue is set to be lost... zero.People need to remember that the only people who benefit from ad blocking extensions are the advertisers, as they are no longer paying CPM on ads not delivered. CPC ads (eg adwords) are already completely useless and most sites...
Share-repurchases are often the best thing to do when your company has "too much money", because that neuters the bears ability to manipulate the stock price in short-sales.However, there are often much much better things that money could be spent on.Google meanwhile has been nothing short of harmful to everything they touch outside the search engine. Sure you might have a lot of smart people, but Google hasn't learned the lesson Apple learned when Steve Jobs came back to...
