This pretty much.An embedded SIM was always a bad idea, because that ensured carrier lock-in, thus regressively sending us back to 1991, where carriers started picking different technologies, and making switching impossible.The Apple SIM is just an option. What I'd like to see is the Apple SIM work with all PAYG (Pay as you Go/Prepaid) systems, in conjunction with Apple Pay, so that it only deducts an amount that you use, instead of "topping up" uselessly just to keep the...
The Translink system in Metro Vancouver, BC, uses Cubic but they have yet to actually turn the system on. Assuming they ever do, they could enable Apple Pay on it (It uses the same NFC hardware system that London Transport uses, though TFL allows payment via credit cards, where as Translink does not.)This comes back to the tracking data aspect. Translink wants the Compass card to do a tap-on/tap-off system, while I don't know how Clipper or the Oyster card works for...
The customer is "always right" is a cliche that made sense in the 20's to the 50's when you could only pay in cash, and most items were made to last, not made to be obsolete in 3 years.Today the correct cliche is "The customer is always lying"You have people who believe that just because a ToS or Law is written a certain way, that any loophole must be exploited. That is why we have BIG companies buying Canadian companies for Tax loopholes, or moving their money through...
Jokes on you, Receipts are not thermal or moisture stable. Sometimes I go to find a receipt from 5 years ago and all that's left is a blank receipt with the store logo on it.If it wasn't so obnoxious I'd actually prefer the dot-matrix thermal receipts of old, at least they were burned permanently into the paper. Then again, I'd rather be able to just click "view receipt for this transaction" on my bank/credit card website, and have every receipt emailed to me as the...
This is a very obvious point, and I'll go one further...Ever since the advent of "pay by phone", everyone tries absolutely everything they can do to discourage using credit cards. They want you to give them your checking info so that1) They can debit your account directly2) Put you on recurring billing3) Not question the charges.There is absolutely ZERO protection from f**k-ups doing it this way. CurrentC, like PayPal also does this, they want access to your banking info...
At any rate you'd think that they would have solved the problem by now, but nope. Telus support is like "uh use a VPN"
Adoption rate might be faster if people were able to download it: http://forum.telus.com/t5/Internet-TV-Home-Phone/slow-and-unreliable-downloads-from-Apple-Content-Distribution/m-p/47829 https://discussions.apple.com/thread/6610987?start=30&tstart=0 "Yosemite download is insanely slow (nothing wrong with my network)" I'm one of those people who are getting only 100Kb downloads. Yes Kb. For whatever reason, even if I override the download location to another CDN point,...
Nope nope nope. You're comparing a scooter to a car on the basis they can both go highway speed.Assuming:1. If the CPU's are 2Ghz, and then therefor desktop x86-64 class. Setting aside that desktop CPU's under 3Ghz are not game machines. Synthetic benchmarks only test the ALU or FPU. All the other features a CPU supports (eg MMX) doesn't have equivalents in ARM and may only be implemented as coprocessors.2. The GPU cores aren't even in the same ballpark as a desktop...
Guess Square/Paypal will still have a future then.Though IMO the iPad never had the iPhone Passport feature which was a prelude into this, nor any possibility of making phone calls on the device, so either it was intentionally left out, or the NFC is built into the radio hardware, and simply not "connected" in software.http://www.extremetech.com/computing/192729-ipad-air-2-teardown-reveals-the-magic-of-apples-thinnest-tablet-a-smaller-batteryIf it's being limited to only...
Ugh, if Icahn or any of those other Corporate raider/vulture/whatever-name-they-are-called-now gets ahold of Apple, you'll quickly see it gutted, like everything they touch. In a sense, they buy enough shares, demand presence in the board room, demand changes that plunder the value of the company through dividends or propping up nose-diving share price with buybacks, and then short the company before it crashes.Or at least that's the gist of what I read about how Icahn...
