Another thing ... At the end of the keynote, Tim said he used his AppleWatch to control his AppleTV. Likely, using WiFi, but possibly IR or BLE ... Something like a WiiMote ... My AppleTV can't do that!
Interesting about the NFC terminal ... I didn't realize it was portable. In the US, I've read they cost about $1,200 per terminal.Your understanding of the AppleWatch for ApplePay jibes with mine -- Once TouchID enabled, I can buy things with my iWatch -- until they pry it from my cold, dead, hands (or I take it off),
Hey, AI ... I (and I hope others will do the same) am not even going to click on any articles that detail Samsung hit pieces on Apple ... There are so many of them, and I have better, more important things to do ... like cutting my toenails!
Here's a big question that came up on another AI thread. Say, you are at a bar, coffee shop, casino or fine restaurant. You want to pay your bill using ApplePay. Does the merchant bring a portable NFC terminal to you? If so, where, when, how much for these NFC Terminals? Given that the likely answer is no -- how does the customer/merchant/cc provider take advantage of the security and convenience of ApplePay when they are not within bump range of the NFC POST? One...
Very well researched and written article ... DED at his best!
Touché.While walking and talking with a French acquaintance in Paris, I was impressed that he walked with his hands behind his back, his body slightly bent forwards with his head down as if in considered, deep thought ...I complimented him on his reasoned conversation -- and how impressed I was with the way looked while walking ...His response: "Deep thought ... Come on, these are the sidewalks of Paris". 💩
Ha!Deux café au lait, s'll vous plaît!I must say that the French really know how to enjoy coffee, the moment and the company of the person(s) they are with.
As they say in French ... Asi es la vida!and ... remembering Beaujolais de Texas made it all worthwhile I'm going to rag on my daughter -- she drinks diet Beaujolais de Texas for tha caffeine hit!
It's been posted elsewhere (in this thread or others at AI) that the ApplePay device (iWatch or iPhone) does not need to be online to the Internet for ApplePay.In fact, the ApplePay device, likely, could be in Airplane mode -- with no radios active except NFC.In its basic form the ApplePay device pays (communicates with the merchant's POST) using NFC. The merchant's POST terminal is connected to the Internet and acts as an intermediary between the ApplePay device and...
To Vincent: I got a response from the André you remembered ... sadly, not the one who taught my class in Vincennes ... I'll PM his email to you/
