Merchants don't care? I doubt they don't care but I'm certain they are dealing with the October deadline. They need to upgrade their credit/debit/NFC equipment. What merchants do is dependent what equipment manufacturers are offering. I'm betting Apple along with other NFC proponents have their fingers in the manufacturers business. 
If it was obvious, why didn't others develop the designs and why are they now copying Apple's designs. Apple's design patents are only obvious after the fact. I read a great definition of both "thinking outside the box" and of the characteristic of genius. It's "seeing the obvious".
"The lawsuit claims that Nike and Apple engaged in violations of consumer protection laws in connection with the Nike+ FuelBand.  More specifically, the lawsuit alleges, among other things, that false and/or misleading statements were made regarding the Nike+ FuelBand’s ability to accurately track calories, steps, and NikeFuel, and that there were breaches of the warranty terms of the Nike+ FuelBand.  Nike and Apple deny the claims in the lawsuit and maintain that they did...
There is Chapter 11 Bankruptcy and Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Chapter 7 is a liquidation -- meaning going out of business.

Interesting problem. Probably doesn't make sense for Apple to ban all such games. But, the question does remain to what extent movies, games, literature, social media contribute to encouraging violence and hatred. One comedian has stated that right now, the only thing his three year old hates is naps. Hate and ignorance is taught and learned. His three year old doesn't really hate yet, but we know he will. And he will, because we will teach him.
Snowden is probably one of the few Americans who could be called a true patriot. People like the above commeters are a big part of the problem.
Graphics input devices are going to see Apple setting up the iPad as a competing input device. Currently, I don't find the crop of White Board applications very good, but by Apple bringing that functionality deep into the Mac/iPad worlds, these applications should see a significant improvement in function.
We'll see how swift develops. Java is a hog for resources, and Apple devices cannot support java. One might need to think of Swift as a Java alternative.
No Apple TV at WWDC? If the Apple TV is to be the hub for HomeKit, and this is the year to pushing HomeKit out, Apple TV device will definitely move forward but without TV services.
