    1. Eric Schmidt says Apple Pay is just a temporary fad and once the NFC payment field stabilizes, everyone will be wanting to use Google Wallet because it’s been around since 2011 and there’s never been any security breaches with it. Consumers won’t need one of those expensive, new-fangled iPhone 6s when they can get any cheap Android smartphone with NFC and achieve the same benefits. Besides 90% of the world uses Android devices so it should be easy to pass Apple Pay transaction numbers within a couple of months.


  1. Jobs brought insanely great products to market. Cook builds insanely great global eco-systems to the masses. They complete one another. The iron fist in the iron glove.

    1. I think Tim is going to crush the TV market and PC markets in the next couple years.

      The effort Apple put into getting ApplePay right and creating new interfaces and fashion dimensions for the Apple Watch is very reassuring. They are staying focused on every detail that matters to their products.

      There is no competitive organization that can match them.
