Apple, Amazon, Google, Facebook. Walmart, Target, Newegg, Macys, Banana Republic, Dell and countless other sites will allow you to store a CC number on their site. Not a big deal (in terms of choosing to keep it on file since you're already making a purchase through their site required you to input your card data into their site.Pay does not store all your cards on Apple's servers, while Google Wallet does store all your cards on Google's servers. That's a huge...
How can you buy and sell after hours?This site would indicate that Apple is still very constrained in the US.http://www.seaturtle.org/idevice/iphone6_grid.shtml
Wow! Just, wow! It's been less than 24 hours since Pay went live and you're already sour-graping your argument to say that security is a pointless consideration.
The US has had RFID and NFC setup for years, but a poor, insecure design has kept it from being wildly successful. Apple changed all that, and not for the US, for everywhere. Just check out waterrocket's video, below, to see what how a poorly designed system works.Thank you for pointing out an NFC-based payment system shouldn't work.
I was hoping for some new Apple Maps stuff last week, including a web interface at maps.apple.com.
Nobody else cares about the user experience to the point of taking pride in minor details that can't be expressed in a spec sheet why should Apple? Nobody else cares about making a phone and the chips that run it and the OS why should Apple? Nobody else cares about not selling your private information why should Apple?How about, they do those things and more because they are Apple. I like Apple because they are more transparent than other tech companies so I would like to...
1) Very, which adds to the impressiveness of Apple being able to orchestrate a system where they can get so many onboard before it launches. They've had a lot bigger struggles with music labels, movie and TV studios, and mobile network operators.2) The only cards that don't work for me are by Amazon and my my airline (which is also tied to the yet unsupported, but coming soon, Barclay). I was able to add 3 cards and most had a slightly different setup. My Chase (not...
This is a fluke. I-Pay won't catch on. Google Wallet is the exact same thing and was first, anyway¡
I don't think it's necessarily Amazon resisting. How I understand it, those kinds of cards are issued and protected by the financial institution, in this case Chase, but are still controlled by another entity, in case Amazon, or some other company between Amazon and Chase.For example, my card from the airline I usually fly is an MC issued by Barclay. Barclay Bank isn't yet supported, but when they are I'll see if my card is also automatically supported.
I feel transparency is better for Apple, and no reasonable person — which of course means no analysts or people with two-z's in their username — will comment that 1 million unit sales per quarter isn't a lot, but we're talking hundreds of millions of dollars and we'll still be able to get a general idea based on how their Accessories category changes from QtQ and YoY.How many $350 and up watches does the Swatch Group sell per quarter? Their entire market cap is $23B, and...
