Sorry apple you have to do much better than that to get me to use Apple Pay. You have to pay me a percentage each time or it’s not worth the hassle.

In addition to your very valid points, fumbling and dropping your card is also a lot less upsetting than dropping a £1000+ phone on the floor. Assuming the person hasn't already spent a further £300+ on a watch.

Until such time that every retailer can accept payment via a phone, my driving licence is accepted as proof of ID via my phone, all my reward cards can work via my phone (and switching between them and payment whilst stood at a till is painless) and I can withdraw cash from a cash-point with my phone and my phone battery will never go fully flat so as not to leave me financially "beached", my wallet will be by my side as well.
Yes, but that is also where I opt out. Unless the officer is forbidden from touching my phone with my drivers license, I am in no way interested in them taking my device back to their car.

Nice to see Apple doing this, I use it wherever I can - for the security if nothing else. Apparently the Chip Cards are still being stolen like the prior ones here in the U.S. - so ApplePay's automatic one time use numbers are totally awesome.

I disagree. Not everyone takes ApplePay. Therefore, I still need to have my card with me. Since I can also tap my card it’s typically easier to just pull that out, and if tap to pay is unavailable with that merchant I just use the chip.
So what card are you using that's Tap and Pay and which country are you in? Here in the U.S. the only card I've seen with Tap and Pay enabled is CostCo's Visa (which CostCo, or its bank, only allows the tap and pay to work at CostCo, very cool, but nowhere else...unbelievable).

The Banks here didn't enable the PIN part of Chip and PIN even though it'd be much more secure because they make more money per transaction if the buyer doesn't enter a code (since it gets counted as a debit then and charged much less in transaction fees) - so we have no PIN. I'm guessing Tap and Pay has something similar here (lower transaction fees for banks) in the U.S. since few to no banks are offering it.

Report Highlights Danger of Using AirTags for Tracking Dogs

Monday January 30, 2023 1:45 pm PST by

At 1.26 inches in diameter, AirTags are able to fit easily on a dog's collar, but that size also makes the tracking devices small enough to swallow, at least for a medium to large-sized dog, and ...
