Apple Watch will need to be charged daily, Tim Cook confirms
There's still much we don't know about Apple's highly anticipated Apple Watch. First and foremost, we don't know when the device will launch, aside from a somewhat vague window of "early 2015." What's more, we have no idea how Apple plans to price its impressive lineup of Apple Watch devices.When Apple typically introduces a new product, it loves talking details. The Apple Watch, though, was rather light on the details. Indeed, one data point Apple neglected to mention was what type of battery life users can expect to see with the Apple Watch. And for a company that loves boasting about best-in-class battery life across its range of mobile products, the omission certainly raised a few eyebrows.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

Apple Pay vs. CurrentC: Which will retailers choose?
CVS and RiteAid’s much-derided break with Apple Pay makes perfect sense for them.Apple Pay, like Uber, is a good product with a great user experience, but unlike Uber, Apple Pay is not disruptive. Apple Pay won’t reduce costs or improve efficiency in the credit card payments industry, which taxes merchants 2% to 5% of top-line revenues to pay transaction fees. Merchants’ acceptance of Apple Pay is for their consumers’ convenience, no different than accepting cash, checks, and credit cards. Saving the consumer the time it takes to put down his or her iPhone to pull out a credit card is Apple Pay’s only advantage.Currently, at least three organizations are involved in every credit card transaction: the merchant acquirer bank that represents the merchant taking the payment, the issuing bank that issues the credit card to the consumer making the payment, and the credit card company that transfers the funds between them. All share the fees.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More
