For the time being, I'm ok with Google Wallet seeing an uptick in users and actual use. However, having used ApplePay the other day at my local ShopRite, I can say that Google has nothing on Apple. The process of paying with ApplePay was as easy as described, and way easier than pulling out a credit card.   Now I wonder what will happen if/when MCX starts pressuring ShopRite to turn off their fancy new NFC equipped terminals.
I have a 100Mbps service, and was shocked to see I was only getting 15Mbps down following the upgrade to Yosemite on my rMBP. However, after trying a number of different servers, I quickly realized the problem was on their end, not mine. Switching to a number of different servers yielding the kind of results I was expecting.
 What I want to know is, how are there 17 5-star ratings for CurrentC in the App Store?
 Interesting. Not trying to contradict you as I imagine the more that are pissed off about this the better, but an Android-using co-worker seemed indifferent about it, stating (in reference to Google Wallet), "well, not that many people use it anyway". Though, I suspect, his deep seated dislike of Apple is probably clouding his judgement.
 Wait, I thought they've had NFC for years? ;) Seriously though, that is true. I can agree with SirLance99 that we're on the same side with respect to this topic.
 Those in question apparently too ignorant to realize it affects them too.
 Well, I guess maybe they should've dropped the 't', it would've been a bit better then. But, yes, I hate it.
Yeah, I remember that hair-brained scheme cooked up by Dick Sharp and a bunch of lawyers. It was a happy day when they pulled the plug on that stillborn mutated distant cousin of the DVD.
Too bad ShopRite was on that list of MCX members. It's my go-to supermarket, and I would love to be able to pay with ApplePay there. Now if there only was a Whole Foods or Wegmans near me, I'd be happy.
