I couldn't have said it better myself Slurpy
it was the carriers that rejected google wallet the problem google has is that it implements tech too quickly doesn't really think about what it is doing strategically and just rushes out lots of crappy beta products hoping that one day one of them will stick. Google is the equivalent of Samsung - they try everything wasting resources in the process and only a few of their products stick. It's a flawed business model.

Add to that Google wallet on works on KitKat 4.4 which is less than 10% of Android installed base. 
And here is another piece of stupidity for Google wallet,   it will only be possible to use Google Wallet to make an NFC payment using a device that supports host card emulation (HCE). “Devices with Android versions older than Android 4.4 (Kitkat) will no longer be supported for tap and pay,” Google says. How many devices are on KitKat 4.4 again? I'll answer that for you less than 10%

And this is the reason why Samsung is losing market share, because their  current owners are ditching their crappy phones. The name of the game is keeping your current customers happy by selling a quality device.

Thats what you get buying a low quality, plastic case with inferior components inside

Tim Cook is even more anal retentive than Steve ever was and that is quite some achievement. Everything Tim says is measured, weighed and deliberated on  before he speaks. He has the ability to think so fast that it appears as though what he is saying is spontaneous but it isn't he hardly  ever makes a mistake in what he says. He toys with journalists and media people and  uses them very precisely to achieve his desired outcome.
I'm older now, and I'm a lazy mofo. I can't read the time on my iPhone without glasses, well I can if its the splash screen but not the small text at the top. I hate having to pull out my phone find my glasses every time I want the time. I would prefer a watch. I will be buying the gold one to show it off to all my superficial sailing buddies like me and because I have more money than sense.
