Why CurrentC Will Beat Out Apple Pay

Why CurrentC Will Beat Out Apple Pay
Apple Pay uses standard NFC.
I paid with it at CVS until they blocked it (and Google wallet)
The only apple specific part is the link between apple pay and your bank or credit card. Those same cards can be used with Google wallet. There's no lock in to Apple.
CurrentC on the other hand directly links to your bank, so you can't use credit. They need your SS# and drivers license. They store all that in the cloud and actually try to make that sound more secure than having it on your phone (btw Apple doesn't store your card info on the phone or anywhere they just store a unique device token on dedicated hardware that can only be used for apple pay purposes directly with the bank).
Also if there's any fraudulent activity with CurrentC it's all on the customer to deal with it.
They also track and log all health related purchases as well as location data and other purchase history.
CurrentC is just to collect data so they can sell it and make money it's garbage. And it won't be out for months but I have Apple pay now and want to use it and others use Google wallet.
Hackers Compromised Yahoo Servers Using Shellshock Bug
Why did Microsoft skip Windows 9?
Of course I'm sure lots of programs doing string comparisons will detect 10 as being 8 (or 7 or whatever they're comparing it to) similarly how sites would think IE10 was older than IE9.
Will Apple Lose Siri's Core Tech To Samsung?
I mainly use it for reminders...
"Remind me to clean my AC filter in 2 weeks"
"Remind me to pay my car taxes on October 25th"
"Remind me to do the laundry when I get home"
Stuff like that and it works great. I don't really use it for texting or notes since it makes too many mistakes but I think that's more of my problem. I feel weird talking to a computer so I talk weird and not loud enough.

Apple Will No Longer Unlock Most iPhones, iPads For Police
As others said you can set it up to wipe after 10 failed attempts.. It also slows down when you do that (it'll start saying please wait 1 minute before trying again, 5, 15, an hour etc).
In addition you can also enable a password lock instead of passcode where you can type whatever long and complex password you want, assuming you don't mind having to type that every time you want to unlock your phone.

My most recent energy-saving bulbs last ...
I've gone through probably 3-40 CFL bulbs in the past 7 years. They die just as much as incandescent bulbs for me.
Hoping my expensive Philips Hue LED bulbs last longer, only had them for about 6 months so far.
Two Earth-Like Exoplanets Don't Actually Exist
I say we only go once we've communicated with the life forms on the planet and made reservations.
Would suck to go that far only to have to turn around because they don't have any spare beds.

Bug In Fire TV Screensaver Tears Through 250 GB Data Cap
Hmm that doesn't make sense. iOS updates are delta updates and have been since they first introduced the feature where you can update on the device itself.
Only when doing complete version upgrades (e.g. iOS 6 to iOS 7) does it download the entire OS. Or if you download updates via iTunes instead of on the device.
I just updated my iPhone 5S yesterday from 7.1.1 to 7.1.2 and it was just a 32mb download.
The lightbulb I've most recently acquired ...
One of my last purchase was the Phillips Hue starter kit which was like $200. And then I think I got some generic 40W style white LED bulbs for about $16. But I haven't used them yet so I'll just ignore them and go with the Hue and say $200 so I voted "Cost $20 or more"
The colorized maze ones remind me of the magic eye posters. I think I see a schooner!

"NASA's 70 year long mission sadly ended today, day 93 of 25567, as the last terminally ill astronaut succumbed to his illness.
A backup mission was planned but had to be scrapped because the commander broke his hip."
