I dissagree.  For the same reason TouchID is wonderful and got a lot of people to use security on there phones who otherwise would not have. Convenience (ease of use).I personally hate debit and credit machines there a pain in the ass most of the time and take a lot more time to use.   Especially when they ask you stupid questions and make you go through pins, do you want money back?, and various other things they have you do.  Also waiting for the clerk to respond to your...
Also remember that in the US all paper is required by law to be 70% recycled.  So not as many trees as you would think.  Also remember that trees for paper and lumber are farmed not unlike food and are planted and grown in tree farms and have been for a number of years now.  Trees can be a cash crop too.See: http://weyerhaeuser.com/Businesses/Timberlands and here:  http://weyerhaeuser.com/Sustainability/Communities/ForestManagementas just one example of tree farming by one...
Well said. What an anti customer service payment system!   Like Cook said in the keynote, all mobile payment systems have been designed to benefit the companies not the consumer.  This is a huge F- You to consumers everywhere that is designed to have you compromise your bank account number with self serving merchants who want to collect data and possibly collect transaction fees directly from you instead of paying the banks.  For the sole purpose of lining there pockets.
Well isn't that interesting.  That means chip and pin won't work either.  In october 2015 they will become responsible for any fraudulent behavior because of the disabling of Paypass/paywave, because this is chip and pin.  The government just implemented that plan.  Good luck with there Merchant Exchange system.
I can tell you as a victim of both the Target and Home Depot Security Breaches I will not ever give my Bank account direct data to these clowns. Its bad enough that they negligently gave up my debit card numbers in both cases and cause me to have to change them not once but twice. Then to ask me to trust them with my account number lol!  Yeah Right thats not going to happen.  If they will not support Apple Pay a very secure way of making transactions and are outrightly...
Wow yeah I forgot that they didn't include china this year in these numbers this is really huge.
9 days of the 6 and 6 Plus to be exact
This is for the quarter just completed and the new iPhones the 6 and 6 plus won't show significant sales volume until the current fiscal 1st quarter of 2015 concludes 3 months from september 27th.  The new iPhones have only been on sale from the 19th of September forward. So only 9 days of the fiscal 4th quarter were the new iPhones the 6 and the 6 Plus counted towards the fiscal 4th quarter of 2014.  The majority of this just concluded fiscal 4th quarter of 2014 was the...
what's going to get hacked?  What are thieves going to get?  A bunch of one time use tokenized numbers that are useless once they have been used?  The thief also has to have your fingerprint. Your card numbers are not stored on your phone.  If your phone gets stolen you can immediately suspend payments from that device.The retailer gets no info from you at all.  Just the one time use tokenized number.  They don't get a card number, security code, signature or any other...
It will have a "kick stand!"/s
