I suppose I can understand this.  The merchant's themselves, unlike the card issuers and consumers, don't particularly benefit from the increased security, so have little incentive to purchase compatible equipment, if they haven't already. What I think they are overlooking is the same rationale that made cards popular in the first place.   Ease of use and ready acceptance remove impediments to more casual and impulsive spending... What merchant doesn't like that?  OK,...
So, you are saying Apple would have been more likely to give the money to starving children than U2?Don't think I agree, although I wouldn't say the same for their label.
Sad, really... He was listening to the National Anthem at the time.
Weren't there 25.883 million complaints?
But the security number on the back already raises the non-identifier digits by three, and there's no reason that number couldn't be four or more digits long too, so, along with all the other qualifiers mentioned, whatever the top number is, without changes to the front of the card it's flexible, and we're nowhere near needing to worry about it.
Sooo...selling their own products and delivering them locally? In a city the size of New York, they'll need at least one person to do the packaging. Probably even have to be full-time.
I think you made that point earlier, but thanks anyway.
Not only not an engineer, but also not a scientist or mathematician of any kind,so if I misstated or erroneously referred to a technical issue, I'm sorry, but I clearly wouldn't know it even if you explained it. Here, I don't think you are explaining, just kidding around, but, either way, you've lost me. My question was a simple one regarding space used by iOS - no jargon, no complications.I do believe that in-store demo programming accounts for the difference between the...
Seriously?!I cannot believe that in 2014, everyone on this site is NOT an engineer...But thanks for reminding me why I was never tempted to become one.Does Apple still have them?  Because it looks like we are almost exactly 8 bases short, here,and that's almost two baseball games.
I realize that this is sorta tangential to this thread, but... Went to the Apple store in Santa Barbara to actually see the new phones (ours won't 'ship' till 10/24...aaarrrggh!).   Turns out the word "sleek" has been redefined. Maybe also "svelte".   But I was concerned to discover that iOS 8 seemed to be taking up 8GB roughly. iOS 7 on my 4 only uses 2.5GB, so if 8GB is accurate, then folks who buy the 16GB iPhones are fairly well screwed compared to the older...
