I get where the green text haters are coming from. The majority of people that I communicate with have iPhones, so it has become seamless to send them pictures, documents or other items. For the occasional green texter, I have to deal with error messages and having to convert to a format that their mobile phone will accept. Because it is infrequent (thank goodness!), I sometimes don't remember what format I need to use, so it just becomes a bigger hurtle to navigate.
The local Chevron gas stations now have NFC readers, but they don't say anything about ApplePay. On a whim, I pulled out my iPhone, tried ApplePay, and it worked! Touch ID is much faster and easier than the credit card and zip code routine. Also, a number of gas stations have been compromised by crooks who put skimmers on the card readers. Now I don't have to worry about that.
I wonder if these will work to reduce the noise of the crying child on an airplane (or just the roar of the engines)? I have an early Bose over-the-ears for this purpose, but I don't like to use them because they're heavy to carry around and, more significantly, they hurt my ears. I was thinking about getting the Bose in-ear version (wired), but maybe I'll take a look at these instead.
