Farewell, Android Pay. We hardly tapped you

Huh. I've rarely used contactless payments, because the contactless receivers always seem to be broken or not supported by the merchant's software. Also, when AmEx issued me a card with a chip a couple years ago, they removed the contactless feature. Since it was a transparent card I could see pretty clearly that this was a physical interference issue, i.e. the contact chip went in the same place that the contactless one used to. From that I got the impression it was a dying technology, but maybe that's only true in the US.
