Farewell, Android Pay. We hardly tapped you


Ya, but it looks really cool to walk up to the Starbucks teller and tap your iWatch. Until it doesn't work, which happen in front of me at a Starbucks a few months back. Note to all you cutting edge/young ultra uber cool people - it really looks good when it works. Until it doesn't, and then you look like a fool. And you're in my way.

I had the Starbucks Pay app years ago and it kept falling asleep while I was in line. Screw that.

If I can walk by your phone sitting on a table and tap it with my hidden Square tap-to-pay credit card reader and it doesn't wake up or send any kind of 'are you sure?' message please, please let me know where you hang out.
