The issue with MCX decision is it's illogic. Using ApplePay changes nothing. Each of these companies must continue to take credit cards, whether that credit card transaction is through NFC ApplePay or Google Wallet or by swiping the card is irrelevant. The irrationality of the MCX decision and its exclusivity is transparent.    Then, the story makes statements involving the CurrentC merchants working together!  "Working together" is wholly unnecessary from a technical...
My guess is A-List actors will never bite since the script and biography on which it is based bites.
24 or 36 months is still measured in months.
Means dividends will rise, share price will increase, value of Apple will increase with no increase in productivity. Apple is simply unable to figure out what to do with the cash it earns. It probably should be buying up content providers, broadcasters, tv manufacturers.
If true, this will be OS X/iOS running under ARM with touch support. The merger has to happen.
Google's core is tracking users and advertising and perhaps as NSA contractor. Everything else is skunkworks. Another view of Google is a for-profit and poorly run copy of Apache Inc.
If your product's success depends on the name you happen to give the product, you don't have a product.

That's Apple too. They have 800M credit cards in their "cloud". ApplePay only protects CC transactions at the point of transaction. Only hacking per transaction is protected. ApplePay doesn't do anything to protect against hacking of the cloud databases which hold CC and other information. 
Apple has some work cut out for themselves to make ApplePay work. Only a handful of banks support ApplePay now. The ability to use ApplePay everywhere will require all banks to get on board. None of the banks I have credit or debit cards with are accepted.    MCX might actually beat Apple in the marketplace because they don't need banks to get on board. Even though MCX and the companies that support it want to avoid CC fees, they certainly don't have to. They seem to be...
