 There still a surprising number of people that haven't quite moved to the "laptop" way of living yet, and think that a computer needs to be a big box (or not-so-big in this case) sitting on a desk. Lots of people buying their first Mac this way. 
Apple stores your credit card info on your behalf, rather than the merchant. Apple has proven their place within the credit card industry, and most consumers trust Apple to hold their card info. I believe the unique card number that is sent from your iPhone through the merchant and then to the processing company is then used to look up the attached card between the processor and Apple.     Apple <--> You <--> Merchant <--> Processor <--> Apple That means the merchant never...

And the comma is in the wrong place in the title; it should be outside the quotation marks, after 'surprising', not inside. Rushed posts these days... the world is going down the drain, I say. :)
It's great seeing companies having a sense of fun and humour. :)
Checks the calendar to see if it's April 1st.   Nope. What the heck is this? iPod lock-in? It's 2014. Who's really behind this? Can't be consumers. Lawyers maybe?
