That fee is to be expected and presumably a person to person transfer also won't be considered as a purchase by credit cards; it would be considered a cash advance which potentially (depending on your bank) comes with its own one off % fee added by the bank and would incur interest from day one (no interest free days) and will have its own special interest rate (often much higher than the interest rate for purchases).
Here's hoping people realize the likelihood of this.
There's no way this is Apple bowing to the pressure of Australian banks. This would always have been intended by Apple. As Radarthekat said, they first keep tight control of new features and then they slowly open them up in a safe way.
I'm laughing at those banks that didn't get on board. The new Person to Person Apple Pay payments are received to an 'Apple Pay Cash Card' which stores the value received. You can then send that value on to someone else or spend it using Apple Pay or withdraw it too your bank account. So from my understanding it works like a digital pre-paid Visa debit card. This will open up Apple Pay to all Apple users regardless of whether their bank is on board or not.

Sure, that would work great.

For the post-July period, the cars are said to have traveled 56,135 miles autonomously, and to have experienced just 28 Important Disengagements
April 17-June 18: 24,604 miles with 76, 557 disengagements
After July 18: 56,135 miles with just 28 disengagements.
Sounds to me this includes an early experimental testing period when yes the SW would be buggy as heck.
The latter figure with over twice as many miles and less than thirty issues is more endemic of a maturing system.
The latter figure only proves what they said, that they changed the types of disengagements that they reported.
I also assume they are improving but there's no proof of that from the data above.
