How do you pay online with Apple Pay again? That's right, you need your card number and expiration date. The solution to online fraud is to have a password. Visa and Mastercard started implementing it.
In store you need the PIN, whether you have Apple Pay or not.
Apple Pay works online, same security, same privacy protections. No card number or expiration date required. Apple Pay only requires a pin or fingerprint on the device, not on the POS terminal. Neither the pin or fingerprint data ever leaves the device. Passwords at a POS terminal (or ATM) are easy to skim.
You need to update your propaganda. Apple no longer has the lead in tablet market share.
iOS may no longer be the leading tablet OS, but Apple is still has the largest tablet market share of any tablet manufacturer.
plus it just seems more workable when I can VPN in just like my PC at home.
Isn't VPN for Windows RT not coming until version 8.1 (unlike iOS which has VPN support now)?
