IBM and I would beg to differ.
SQL is a standard which is probably why Foundation DB added it to their key value layer.
 I don't see how it would be any faster just because it is mobile. Mobile is usually slower compared to a desktop anyway because the CPU is underpowered and there is not a lot of Ram. If we are still talking about web server scripting such as PHP vs. Swift, the only thing that could make one faster than the other is if it can render the page into HTML or return a JSON object faster. I suspect it will be hard to beat PHP because PHP is compiled directly into the Apache...
So now IBM is going to be building Hackintoshes? ¡No way José!
It seems to me that if Swift functionality was equivalent to PHP such that it was essentially a tag replacement runtime engine like all the others including Coldfusion .Net, or RoR, etc., there would still have to be a compelling reason to port existing web apps to Swift. Unless it is light years faster or more secure and have a large enough developer base, I don't see it displacing PHP. It is really expensive to rewrite software. If your app is already tested and...
That will be interesting to see. Do you think Swift will actually be a server scripting language on the order of PHP? Currently PHP does integrate with compiled binaries such as curl, gd, apc, module, mysql and others so perhaps apps written in Swift could be compiled in but that would depend on whether PHP itself can be compiled with LLVM.
These models won't even spin the propellers if it is in a restricted air space. Not sure about the altitude limitation. That one might be difficult to implement. 
It is going start happening in a big way very soon because the EMV-compliant POS system deadline is October 2015. I'm not sure why so many retailers have not upgraded yet but there will probably be a big rush at the last minute. Since they will have to replace all their CC readers they will most likely opt for the NFC capable readers at that time. At that point there would little reason not to accept Pay.
  Are you kidding? Apple doesn't even run Mac servers in their own data centers. From the few pictures I've seen, they appear to be HP servers. Apple doesn't even make servers. Why would IBM implement a Mac server program when they have been pushing Linux in all their enterprise solutions for a long time? Makes no sense. Go read the IBM website. All their enterprise solutions are Linux or IBM AIX. IBM does not offer any Windows based server products so I'm not sure what...
Nope. IBM servers and back end infrastructure is all Linux. This IBM/Mac initiative is about creating an ecosystem for their iPad apps and nothing to do with servers.
