The one problem with Apple taking a cut is the banks or credit card companies will likely pass that on to consumers. For example, Discover just got through with a  six month promotion where if I averaged over $3,000 a month they will pay me $500 in addition to the normal cashback I already receive which range between 2% to 5% depending on merchants.That extra $500 was a nice bonus for doing nothing I don't normally do.    If Apple cuts into their fees, is it possible we...
 There might be a lot of cracked screens and broken iPhones from drive thru transactions as people hold their phones out the window. I wonder how that will work. Online sales is also another problem area for magnetic cards. It would be nice to have an added layer for online sales for example a temporary PIN that expires and is sent by text. Or perhaps Apple Pay incorporates some online purchase feature I have not read about yet.  Apple Pay won't solve all the issues but it...
First of all I am also a fan of Apple Pay and think it can be big. It is also good to add Discover since they are my favorites and often offer the biggest cash back. The one thing I do not understand is why most of the rest of the world added relatively cheap technology to existing credit card years ago that ones in the U.S. never offered. Two very simple things. A small photo of the user on the card and something called chip and pin. This is also known as "Smart cards"...
One handed use was never that important for me. Whenever I watch videos or spend more than a few seconds to check weather, a score, or similar I always hold my 55 in landscape. Many apps now are landscape mode only and won't even work in portrait mode at all. This is especially true of games. I couldn't care less about one handed use. I am just so happy to finally have the iPhone I have been waiting for. 64GB iPhone 6 plus for me. 
I personally prefer to own my phones because they work out free or actually a small profit for me. But I can see the appeal of people that want a new iPhone every year. I am with Sprint not solely because it is cheaper but also because I have zero complaints about the service. YMMV but for me it works fine.   The new plan is $50 a month for unlimited data, talk, & texts plus $20 for the base iPhone. That works out to $75 or so after taxes. I don't think AT&T or Verizon...
Nah, the one he made with me. he said if the 5.5" was anything other than an iPod Touch he wouldn't post for a month. Can't be bothered to look for it but did find this post which is very apropos. http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/177343/carriers-suggest-a-big-screen-iphone-6-could-be-a-very-special-success-in-china/80 
Thank God they have one in gold. I do not ever want to wear plastic on my wrist that is seen in public and at work. I love the variety for many tastes. This immediately made the competition look cheap and obsolete. (more than they already were)   Anyone want to buy a Breitlling?    Wall Street seems pleased. AAPL up 2.37
 Well if an insane person knows more about Apple than you and nearly all my predictions were correct down to even the name (way before any leaked rumors or picts  as well) and all your predictions were completely and utterly wrong, that doesn't speak too highly of you does it. The self-proclaimed resident Apple guru and genius on AI fell completely flat on his face. Oh the humanity.... It is also impolite to eat and type. How does that crow pie taste? I am sure you have...
I even guessed the name back in February as the iPhone plus. And again TS was livid because I knew nothing according to him and Apple would never call it plus.    Oh happy day. 
I seem to recall that Tallest Skill called me insane for my predictions back in February. I believe the bet required the loser to not post for one month on AI. I even predicted the 1920 x 1080 part. Take a big bite, you earned it.
