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 ...

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/
Good points, all!My first reaction to a question like this is: How do they do it now?1) bypass the NFC terminal altogether2) give your cc to the waiter or bartender to take to the NFC terminal3) pay with your cc at the front desk where the NFC terminal is locateed! and 2 are insecure and are part of the problem that EMC is trying to resolve.3 is inconvenient and could allow a customer to run-up a bill (before approval) that he cannot pay for.What appears most likely, is...
Here ya' go for starters: Mierda, Scheise and Merde!To answer your specific pregunta -- the verb is chengar.
Yeah ... I'm certainly guilty of pushing that limit!
