 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.

 That was my question as well. Quick Check, as an example, has the NFC logo on their terminals, but are not listed as a participating location. I assume, then, that it wouldn't work. Here's hoping that list expands quickly (come one Shell, Hess, Sunoco, & Shoprite).

However, as long as it would have a desktop processor, a real graphics card (or at least real graphics performance), and a 1TB SSD, I'd be happy.
 My iPhone 5 bent at the same weak spot by the volume - button when I had it in my back pocket, and fell on my rear end. I doubt Apple re-engineered anything then, and they probably won't this time around either. We'll see an iPhone 6S in the same form factor next fall, and then we'll get another redesign the year after. Or at least that's been the case since the iPhone 3G. And even if they do make some internal changes, they'll be very quiet about it. The truth is, if it...
 Having been a Bose dealer at one point, and having attended one of their "come drink the kool-aid before you sell our stuff" sessions, I can confirm that their marketing mantra is to make a product that is "good enough" for the average consumer. They made no effort to hide that fact, and were actually even proud of it because, according to them, "that is where the lion's share of the money is". We found their products to be mediocre, and when all was said and done, we...
