In addition, Major League Baseball announced on Monday that Apple Pay and other NFC supported mobile payment services can be used by fans to pay for food and drink during the 2014 World Series between the Kansas City Royals and the San Francisco Giants. The two respective ballparks, Kauffman Stadium and AT&T Park, will be the first professional sports stadiums to accept Apple Pay when game one of the Series takes place on Tuesday. Next year, baseball fans will be able to use Apple Pay to purchase single-game tickets using the At the Ballpark app. Once you're
Now that Apple Pay is here, we could see more people using the mobile payment service available on their phone. Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T have their own service, called Softcard. Originally called ISIS, the three carriers changed its name for obvious reasons. By the way, iPad users can also use Apple Pay. But because the tablets do not have NFC connectivity, the mobile pay feature can be used for online payments only.

I paid for McD's with my Nexus 4 and Google Wallet over a year ago. It's not a matter of faster news, it's a matter of relevant to the moment. Apple Pay is the new hotness and relevant to this moment.

I remember about a year ago I was going to use my phone to purchase some stuff from Duane Reade and the cashier asked me to use a credit card or cash instead. They get annoyed because they don't know what's going on.

Google Wallet was cool, I used it with my SIII. I'm glad that Apple has their own way to pay but the have specific features that go beyond what Google Wallet did. Apple has the marketing power and the backing to push this into the view of consumers. Google was mostly quiet about them having Google Wallet and never made it a really big feature. Now that Apple has all of these companies on board with their payment system, everyone wants to say "back in 20XX, I was using NFC when there was 20 inches of snow on the ground....we used to walk to the store backwards and use Google Wallet blah, blah...." Just let Apple enjoy their "new" feature and let it go. I'm sure your body will thank you for not having to take so much blood pressure medication with every launch of an Apple product.
