better yet... split comcast, TW and any cable based ISP into two. One is the ISP, the other is the infrastructure company. The infrastructure company sells access tot he ISP and now we have a company that has an incentive to sell access to multiple ISPs and upgrade/properly maintain interconnects.
With the ability to grow a new bladder for patients born with small and poorly compressing bladders: source We may not have the ability to get these bladders fully functioning using this new technology. The biggest hurdle has been getting nerves to connect to the bladders so they can be used voluntarily and without the use of a catheter.
RFID technology is a diverse group of tech. NFC requires near contact to activate. RFID used in passports are not NFC, broadcasts without authentication and does not encrypt the data. NFC is nothing like that.
It is kind of hard to claim that for GW since you have to claim that, on top of someone stealing your device, they also have to have your wallet pin. then you have to explain why you did not suspend your wallet account when the device was stolen.
further more, you will probably get stuck with the charge if you failed to encrypt your device since you had the least secure technology in the chain of the transaction.
weird, since both Apple pay and Google Wallet carry the same costs for transaction.
You better be using cash for all your transactions if you care about purchase history.
Your history, unless you are doing something shameful is not what people are after. they want access to your accounts and PH does not provide that.
You realize that political and regulatory reasons are harder to overcome than technical ones right?
in both cases neither Google or apple relay your financial information to the vendor. Google generates a one time credit card number, apple uses a secure one time token as proof the funds are being credited to the vendor.
As opposed to what? A mag stripe?
An NFC chip requires the device be within millimeters of a terminal to activate. The payment system itself is anonymous and provides perfect forward secrecy of your financial information. To activate the payment you have to have to authenticate. That can be done with a pin or in Apple's case, a thumb print.
I will take that system over a stupid mag strip or even a chip and pin.
You obviously were not old enough to actually live through the 90's because if you had you would know that:
1) USB was not even part of the original Winows 98
2)Apple released the iMac in 1998 and only had USB ports, dropping all legacy ports
3) the iMac was released three years before the iPod
4) You suck at history
No, the other option is to force infrastructure owners to stop selling ISP services and create a compulsory license fee for ISPs that wish to have their signal carried over the infrastructure.
Over night you have market competition.
Oh darn, if only you had.more room to provide use with those equally valid "theories"
Right, because fewer people died of opportunistic infections before we had anti biotics and disinfectants.
Where did you learn science? Home School creationism?
Observation of actual phenomena (evolution) ->Hypothesis of the mechanism of observed phenomena (Natural selection, genetic mutation, etc) -> Test, Test, Test, Test, Test ->Mechanism is stated to be a theory by consensus ->Test-> (maybe) revise theory -> (and on we go)
You could have saved us a lot of time and just stopped after your first sentence.
