The unfortunate fact of the matter is, that nobody, but nobody in the business world, has any reason to help give Apple any piece of this colossal pie - not merchants, not issuing banks,  not competing NFC-pay approaches, not any of the credit card issuers.    The only motivation any of them have, is to ensure they don't piss off any Apple-lovers by being seen to be a factor in Pay's failure.   Sure, consumers, were they uniformly alert, informed, and...
Er...ummm...doesn't it kinda defeat the purpose,if I'm required to give them my information, in orderto tell them I don't like giving them my information? I have an idea...I'm going to write all my personal info on cash,just to see whether they'll accept that!
Perfectly valid point, and I sincerely appreciate the work that went into compiling all that. Personally, I suspect people are willing to favor a device that's only reasonably larger,given the other-wordly functionality of these little beasts... And, it's been said, but a lot of us find a larger screen a tremendous encouragement to explore those capabilities. Regarding how that impacts device size, we finally got our 6's Tuesday, and all three of us (me/wife/son)were...

Yeah - talk about retaining resale value...
Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse -   Sorry, Sammy - wrong time to stop copying Apple!
Not to put too fine a point on it, but this is a more modern version of a business model that,at least here in the US, contributed to the rise of organized labor over a century ago.Still, I appreciate Krawall's point - it's hard for first-worlders to rotate their perspective sufficiently sometimes,to recognize that this might be to some degree a step upward for these folks.
