Re: Rapid deplyment of NFC by Apple
@SteffenJobbs- I have to agree with you that Google is just wasting resources and money on unnecessary projects. Google glasses is one classic example, too expensive and not worth the investment.

Re: misinformed!!
@SteffenJobbs- Yes I cannot understand why Google is keeping quiet and not getting ready to face the challenge of losing their customer / market share.

Re: Fanbois
@WaqasAltaf – I am sure Apple will eventually reduce the price of the product to grab the market. They might even offer a trade in discount.

Re: Apple's already destroyed market share
@WaqasAltaf – Having too many ways of making a payment is also not a good sign of development. There should be one good mechanism accepted across the globe to make it more convenient.

Re: Fanbois
@ Rocwurst01 – Paypal has been trusted payment partners for years, most of us have confidence in making a payment with PayPal as we know we are protected. Do customers feel the same with Google Wallet?

Re: Wait, What?
@jgherbert – yes majority use android devices and I am wondering how Apple is planning to fix this. I am not sure if a user would switch to apple for NFC payments, if so will android keep quiet.

Re: Fanbois
@PedroGonzales – Do you think other companies would happily tie up with Apple to implement NFC payments? If they don't will apple be successful with NFC payments.

Re: misinformed!!
@Bobbydig – yes NFC has been in existence for a while but most of us didn't use it properly. Do you think we would really have payments set up via NFC very soon?

Re: misinformed!!
@mrsinisterlefty – yes apple is late for the party, I was under the impression that they are researching own their own NFC method.
