Samsung own the patent. Should they sue ?
Not a mention of the loophole that can get PayPal payers double their money back if they know how to game unsuspecting vendors? Odd.

Attention Apple lovers. Today's enemy is Paypal. Go.
I have been using PayPal for every transaction I engage in on Ebay. I don't see that changing. I will, however, use Apple Pay with my new iPhone 6
How do we know this?
A) Because Apple specifically said so:
"None of the cases we have investigated has resulted from any breach in any of Apple’s systems including iCloud® or Find my iPhone."
Apple could be lying (or further cases could be discovered from this bottomless well of criminal photo trading). But the story going out is that it WAS a breach of iCloud, and was carried out using the former Find My iPhone rate-limiting flaw. Apple would be stupid to lie when other security researchers could catch them out in the lie--and such lies have not been Apple's historical pattern. They DO admit when a security breach has happened. Imagine the storm they would call down by lying and getting busted. (Further backing up their pattern of honesty: there was a delay, as usual, during which the investigated what happened BEFORE making a statement.) Yes, Apple marketing will spin everything. That's the job of every company's marketing. But flat-out lies about a serious breach? No.
and Separate investigation (thanks, 65C816) points to the same conclusion:
"There are entire communities and trading networks where the data that is stolen remains private and is rarely shared with the public. The networks are broken down horizontally with specific people carrying out specific roles, loosely organized across a large number of sites (both clearnet and darknet) with most organization and communication taking place in private (email, IM). .... In reviewing months worth of forum posts, image board posts, private emails, replies for requests for services, etc. nowhere was the FindMyPhone API brute force technique (revealed publicly and exploited in iBrute) mentioned. This doesn’t mean that it wasn’t used privately by the hackers – but judging by the skill levels involved, the mentions and tutorials around other techniques and some of the bragged about success rates with social engineering, recovery, resets, rats and phishing – it appears that such techniques were not necessary or never discovered."
(None of which makes the incident relevant to ApplePay. The facts and details are what matter, and those are NOT on PayPal's side.)
I don't understand. Are you saying Apple should not be offering ?Pay, or that Apple should be working WITH PayPal, or...?
Well, paypal, you just lost yourself a customer.
Paypal - owned by Ebay -- Ebay was hacked just earlier this year as reported by CNET also The Slate reports PayPal authentication is suspect. Also, their are numerous complaints on PayPal's website from users complaining their accounts were hacked.
Paypal can kiss my ass!
What a misleading and untrue ad! They don't give a crap about protecting the people's security, they care about protecting their own pathetic asses, now that ?Pay is entering into their territory.
Tim Cook said that the iCloud celeb hacks were Phising expeditions! iCloud was not compromised!
All of these companies lying and attacking Apple are truly more desperate than ever and they should realize that their lying campaigns will backfire on them.
Paypal is doomed !!
There may be another reason they are scared. I had an epiphany on my way home about ApplePay. What if we are looking at this short sighted as only a way to make payments. If you look at Bluetooth LE and iBeacons, you realize that the iPhone is one as well. It can transmit and also receive. What if the same is true with ApplePay. Why couldn't the iPhone6 or Apple Watch also be a NFC Terminal and accept ApplePay Payments, or any NFC Payments at some point in the future? This would put NFC Terminals in a huge percentage of hands. It puts them Squarely in Square and Paypal's target zone. It also solves a problem that those companies have in 2015. How will they (Paypal, Square, etc) be able to allow their customers to accept payments on Mobile Devices in 2015 and meet the new guidelines?
This is brilliant. I hadn't thought of this ...
