I actually live in Ireland and you are wrong about the chip readers not being readily available.  Most of the terminals have a slot in the front which is not really visually obvious, while they also have a slot down the side to swipe a strip which is visually more obvious.  Those same terminals are often contactless as well so you can just tap the screen with your card.
 Well put, but you left out the part where a European would have to buy an €800 phone in order to use Apple pay instead of just using their existing contactless card which is free.  Obviously some people might buy an iphone anyway, but they are a minority. As for this piece of drivel: The author really needs to travel more. He's almost as ignorant as Sog35.
Provide a reference to an instance of this happening.
Pidgin English even.

Except with books. I downloaded Apple's own iOS 8 iPhone user guide.  Apple disingenuously labels the directory the files end up in as 'epub' yet it clearly is not an epub and is not viewable on non-apple devices that can handle epubs.
 Your infrastructure example is fiber internet.  Only a minority of people have access to that.  Outside of that I have seen scant evidence of 4K capable infrastructure.  In the UK and Ireland the largest commercial broadcaster is SKY.  They don't appear to be about to provide the infrastructure:  and http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/4k-satellite-201408203887.htm Ok, how do I get 20 mbps?  I am 1.5 km from my nearest fiber cabinet and can only get 7.2 mbps due to a line...
 My viewing distance is only 3.5m.  Is that a lot? I have a 50"  but I really need to close the distance a bit for a 1080p channel to appear much different to a SD one. The seating distance for a 40" and 4K is just under 1.8m or 6'.
Where are people watching 4K on existing infrastructure?  Here in Europe, most people get their TV via satellite with some terrestrial broadcasting still going on.  There is not enough bandwidth in either medium for 4K.  Only a very small number of the satellite channels are even HD.  Fiber/cable are the only really likely options and there is still a long way to go before a majority have access to either of those. The main thing limiting access to high speed internet is...
