  • CEO of Canada's Rogers sees 'anemic' demand for Apple's iPhone 8

    I have an iPhone 7 Plus and I am waiting for the iPhone X 256G and thus did not buy the iPhone 8. I will be buying two because my wife is also getting it. 

    We are part of the Apple Upgrade program and our payments will rise only about $10 a month each.

    Slower speeds of chip card transactions? Do you guys process them "weird" in the US?

    Insert card, hit OK, enter PIN, done. Doesn't really take any more time than signing.
    Your description does not replicate the actual experience. The first time I used the chip, I could not believe it. Instead of the fast swipe of the card, the long time, relatively speaking, of reading the chip and waiting until the reader says that the card can be removed was and is still ridiculous. Mind you, I am not entering a PIN and still I asked "Is this progress?." No, it is not and the contactless method will be a big improvement.
