It's fun to make this just bout a cake. But what happens when all on staff nurses/doctors in an ER refuse to help 'the gay' or the local utility company - aka someone with a monopoly - decides that they won't deal with 'them' at all?

What about state/municipal services. It's not too far fetched to think that all the clerks in the whatever-departments-hands-out-business-licenses would refuse a gay person services so that they could start their own gay-friendly bakery.

Could this be a way to 'save' newspapers?

Find a journalist you like and set up a system that you pay them a buck a month? If they are nice they could offer you access to their stories ad-free as a bonus.

Or just use the existing subscription model, just change it from "subscribing" to "financing" and you are employing your favorite organization or reporter.

I'm confused. Isn't Google Pay/Wave a default part of android? Shouldn't the headline simply be '3 wireless carriers don't uninstall an app anymore'?

Being in Canada, I can't say for sure, because Google doesn't want to use it's NFC payment system in a country that is pretty much 90% NFC-able.
