agreed.   if they get the retailers online during the next couple months, the holiday season will be great measures of the savings per transaction.  Better to focus on the critical few, get them right, and then use that as a springboard to convince/coerce other retailers and geographies to get onboard.
piling on... when you put your watch on, it monitors your heart rate and skin contact constantly... if there is no interruption since you last paired to your TouchID enabled phone, your biometrics is 'your fingerprint' to allow a 'touch less' transaction.  
.... and I would argue that it's better to start new anyway.   most of your cruft is cruft.  I'd just forward calendar invites to my @me.com address, mail contact information for the critical few (mom, boss, wife), and then build a new life on my iOS phone. And if I were a mac user, I'd get a gmail to apple sync app, do it once for cal's, email, contact, and not try to do it phone to phone, erase the gmail account, and walk away.
while you may think it's important, it's not something I would get into a pissing match over when describing the benefits of an iPhone.Faster, yes.  64bit registers and addressing... not something I would buy a phone over. The whole 'spec' thing is specious to begin with.   a crappy larger display isn't a big win, nor is image stabilized movies.   Apple is all about the 'system is greater than the sum of it's parts', whereas Samsung in particular, and android in general...
Herbapou speaks the truth. This is a major UPGRADE for probably 40 million of those 60 million sales.  20 Million 'switchers' will be for the following reasons.1) size2) size3) get out of the android ecosystem.  but those 40 million.... those smatterings of 3gs users, 4, 4s, and 5 users will look at this as the jumping point into a real apple ecosystem. The 6 is significantly better phone than the 5... not so much over the 5s.  The 6p is significantly MORE phone, and...
sigh. You know that Mac OS was ported FROM Intel (White NeXTSTEP) to the G3.   It wasn't that secret.
iMac?  ports? I agree that the 'trickledown' of this to the Mac Mini may lead to a problem of dual porting, but an 'all-in-1' solution, with advanced Thunderbolt (3?) or dual TB2 ports for a 2nd monitor is an outlier market.  If you need more than 2 monitors, UHD and size (given the total 'field' of vision) is adequate.  If you need 4 4K or multiple 5Ks, you are definitely in a small niche of users that "should" be addressed with future (likely way way in the future) Mac...
Sorry that doesn't compute $190B of $4Trillion is almost 25% loss rate.  That's too high.  Hyperbole. My guess it's a 10th of that. 2.5% seems like a reasonable number given my understanding of retail loss prevention.and it's the merchants who pay that fraud cost in the end (not the banks) Merchants will love toa) reduce this to zerob) split the profits (that's 1.2% more efficient operations)c) if also reduces cash register staffing labor time all the better.d) if it...
Apple has the ability to scale this worldwide.  There are hundreds of payment processors. None doing the end to end security Apple just brought to the table. Credit/Debut spend: 12Billion a day.  US only.   First year: Apple gets 2% gross profit (after paying Visa for the right to do this for them, as they banking network) of  the net transaction as revenue. First year: Apple gets 1% of the first year credit/debit sales...  120M a day in sales2% of that 2.4Million a day....
