1 year free of Amazon Prime and 2 years for the phone contract ... after your Amazon Prime expires, you still have to pay your phone contract, and then pay for another year of Prime if you want to keep watching, listening, buying, and consuming.
I think that the point of MCX is that it will act as a direct debit transaction, not as a credit transaction. If you plan to use MCX, when you register your card, it will register as a debit card, not a credit card, otherwise the retailer will be paying for a more expensive credit transaction.
As someone who has jailbroken his iPad to get extra functionality, I have been looking forward to the iPad Pro or iPad Plus or whatever they plan to call the enlarged tablet. As a matter of fact, rather than upgrading my iPad Air to a 2, I elected to wait to for the larger form factor that I think is inevitable. On my jailbroken device, I ran a mouse and OS X Experience, a windows manager. Even with the limited integration, I found both to be very useful. I use the iPad...
This article and thread explains exactly why Blackberries survived for so long (and the form factor looks to be returning!)   People here need to stop making the blanket statement that it was a mistake. It was a mistake for the individual, but sales are showing that it was hardly a mistake for Apple.   fwiw, I have small hands and I never thought that I would go to a phablet, but I bought a 6+ for the other functionality I found more important than 1 handed use. I am...
 If retailers are already complaining about needing to implement new more expensive hardware, how much more will it cost if the NFC station has to charge the card, " A battery will not be needed in future versions of the Zwipe MasterCard because it will havest energy from the payment terminals."
And the other point is that all applications are supposed to be sandboxed, but many developer broke the rules to allow for better inter application sharing, especially in earlier versions of iOS that had more stringent control for the use of "Open In". I'll bet that many of these old "indispensable" apps are exactly so because the developers could not find ways to get the apps to work properly as Apple advanced the OS to support new functionality. In this case the apps may...
You just don't get it ... at a low level, the OS has to know about all those apps that are loaded, whether or not they are running. If it doesn't have any interaction at all with those apps, it can't launch them. And those types of low level code are EXACTLY what cause issues like random reboots. In the end, the issue will be resolved because somewhere in the data dumps there will be information of those incompatibilities and Apple will patch them. But with the gajillion...
I have to think that all of this Yosemite/iOS/phone sharing is a large reason for all of these WiFi and Bluetooth issues. Interconnecting all of the devices over wireless in the background is still not fully fleshed out imo.
Interesting that you bring up Jobs 100% devotion to Apple and then talk about Africa. Didn't Steve Jobs help to drive the Red campaign? With 100% of its money going to AIDs assistance in Africa? Didn't that divert his interest from Apple? Or how about becoming the CEO of Pixar? I guess that spending an interview speaking about your lifestyle occupies so much more time than actually running a 2nd company. And what about this...
Why would it work with any other terminal - CurrentC has already said that it is protecting its consortium. It has already said that it expects exclusivity from its partners. Any other company wanting to implement CurrentC is going to have to dump any other contactless system they already have implemented.
