For online Pay payments -- I suspect a coming enhancement will be the ability for Apple Pay on the iPhone to securely Hand Off the Pay pseudo-cc# and one-time security code to a Safari browser running on Yosemite.

Excellent! Incorporate Apple Map ApplePay locations and iBeacons ...
I think that iOS 8 (and its attendant problems/quality issues) is one of those watershed moments that occurs every decade or so. With iOS 8, Xcode 6, Yosemite -- Apple, essentially has turned the [Apple] developer environment on its head ...Never before have Apple APIs been so open, iOS so extensible/flexible ...And, new and expanded Apple Services and integration: iCloud, iTunes, HomeKit, HealthKit ...In addition, we have the potential of Apple partnerships: IBM -...
Or it could be:This old man, he played one,He played knick-knack on my drum;With a knick-knack paddywhack,Give the dog a bone,This old man came rolling home.Since. we're talking "China" here, the song has special meaning -- based on a true story: during the Japanese invasion of Chine during WWII -- where children are marched across the wilderness to freedom while singing this song to distract them from the danger and their impossible quest.It's a real tear-jerker ...See...
