Why CurrentC Will Beat Out Apple Pay

koan OK (628 comments)

Hooking directly to your bank account rather than a credit or debit card, CurrentC will use good old ACH to transfer money from your account to the merchant's bank account at little to no cost.

This sounds plain dangerous, so my suggestion if you're planning on using this is to set up a separate account then transfer only a minimal amount into it.
I'm wondering how secure these phone based paytools are and I wonder how long until I read about someones account being drained.

The goal of terrorism is to disrupt life and create fear, so when you look at how we have to live now it's clear they won.

Creationism Conference at Michigan State University Stirs Unease

koan Re:Laugh (974 comments)

Yes.
Here's what I said again.

it affirmed my lack of belief in Christian dogma. (or any religion)

However I believe in God, in the sense of Spinoza's God (Nature), Ecclesiastes convinced me not to believe in "religion" or what I see as the wrong understanding of God.

Creationism Conference at Michigan State University Stirs Unease

koan Re:Completely appropriate venue (974 comments)

Why? The school gets paid and students get to see the opposing view and decide for themselves.

If you have ever had a conversation with creationist it's fairly easy to poke holes in their arguments.

BACKDOOR STRATEGY

We may have been banned from the classroom,
but banned does not mean silenced. By book-
ing the speakers, and renting the facilities, we
still have an impact.

Creation Summit is visiting major college and
university campuses throughout the country,
bringing world renowned scientists before the
students. Scientists with tangible proof and
viable evidence. Many, for the first time ever,
are discovering that the Bible is true – That
science and Genesis are in total agreement,
and if Genesis 1:1 can be trusted . . . . .
so can John 3:16.

I think everyone should read Ecclesiastes, it affirmed my lack of belief in Christian dogma. (or any religion)

Rite Aid and CVS Block Apple Pay and Google Wallet

koan Re:Target, KMart, and WalMart (553 comments)

Whichever one of these retailers wakes up first and embraces secure technology wins a whole lot of new business.

First no such thing as "secure technology", it's only secure in comparison to something else, second how will sheep that can't keep their own nudies from getting leaked know which is which?

The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act of 2011

koan koan writes  |  more than 2 years ago

koan (80826) writes "The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act of 2011, introduced by Rep. Mike Rogers and Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, allows companies or the government free rein to bypass existing laws in order to monitor communications, filter content, or potentially even shut down access to online services for "cybersecurity purposes." Companies are encouraged to share data with the government and with one another, and the government can share data in return. The idea is to facilitate detection of and defense against a serious cyber threat, but the language is so broad it could be used as a blunt instrument to attack websites like The Pirate Bay or WikiLeaks"
