>> As Apple/Android Pay on sites becomes a standard

It'll be many years before I hook a credit card up to my phone. Part of the reason I keep my family on the Google infrastructure is that their app store doesn't require a credit card (and I'm still looking for the first mobile app I'd need to buy), so it would take two leaps of faith to get me to link up built-in payment to my device.

Comment Lingering effect of "only click this once" (Score 4, Interesting) 102

I think a lot of this has to do with the lingering effects of a hundred "don't close your browse / click refresh / click twice" warnings during that critical credit card submit/commit step. They make me nervous enough on a PC wired to a network - I really don't want to see a dropped connection during this step if I'm my mobile device. (So, I may build up a shopping cart with my phone, but I usually wait until I'm at a trusted PC before buying.)

From Facebook's perspective, the best thing about testing "developing countries" is probably that dropping a drone on someone's head from 60,000 feet will mean, at worst, they're out a three goats and a pair of chickens. (See also: drug makers and name-a-country.)

nope, that won't won't be allowed either.

I see only pain ahead, and it's going to be felt worst by Betty Sues' who run this one command-line tool once a day/week on their shitty seven-year-old Dell desktop to their job, and the managers who will ask IT why they are getting screwed again. Maybe this is how the "year of the Linux Desktop" finally gets going?
