Apple's SNEAKY plan: COPY ANDROID. Hello iPhone 6, Watch


Re: so bitter

Your comment isn't entirely accurate - they are bringing security to mobile payments. If you listened to the Keynote (I presume you didn't) you would know that storing your credit card in Passbook, when you make a payment, you are using a new credit card number and security check digits each time you make a payment. That combination can't be used twice, which means that unscrupulous merchants can't pilfer your details nor can miscreants with unauthorised access to their systems. Nobody has done this before and Apple are leading the industry here, and surprisingly, the banks are only too happy to be on board. I thought that was pretty darn innovative and cool.
