    I found this an interesting read. I was hoping that NFC might finally catch on, but even Best Buy said they have no plans to implement it.

    I think Apple Pay will catch on if only in the Apple world and it's a large world. Good, bad or whatever, Apple drives the market in a lot of areas. I prefer to use good old paper money but I'm a bit older than most here.

    It will be interesting to see what happens. If Apple maintains their use base with people moving to the newer iPhone 6's, I think it will catch on big time.

    This is just for the US market which is conservative (as in none progressive at all) in their payment methods (chip and pin still doesn't exist in USA even if it's been out for years worldwide)

    If I were to compare this from USA to Canada. I can see Apple Pay being useful, a majority of the major brands here in Canada support NFC payments so Apple Pay will work. It might not work in the US just because it's still easier to swipe a card than do 5 steps to enable Apple Pay (I don't know how many steps but I know it's more than 2...)

    They're wrong. Apple has the clout to make NFC payment happen, if anyone can. If it fails, I'll be surprised.

    The MCX consortium is starting to push back. This was expected. The under informed iPhone user ("What's CurrentC??") is having a tough time with it.
