But that means one would have to shop at Home Depot. :lol:
OK I guess one could use cash....
Which is much better than shopping in lowes.
If you're lady, perhaps (wide aisles, pretty signage, bright inviting lighting)...can never find what I need in Lowe's.
So, does that mean that, that annoying friend who keeps stealing my phone when I'm drunk, to text my GF that it's over, can also reward himself with burgers on my expense? I totally need that in my life and I'm looking forward to trust Apple with it all.In other news, I used Apple Pay for the first time tonight at McDonald's and holy fucking shit is it awesome! I hope more places start adding NFC support soon!
He can't do either of those things unless he steals one of your fingers as well. Or your PIN.So, does that mean that, that annoying friend who keeps stealing my phone when I'm drunk, to text my GF that it's over, can also reward himself with burgers on my expense?

Activate the PIN to unlock the phone, prevents those things from happening and is generally advisable as well...So, does that mean that, that annoying friend who keeps stealing my phone when I'm drunk, to text my GF that it's over
You don't need to use any of these functions if you don't want them. I deactivated Siri, GPS and various other functions when I got my work iPhone. Another advantage of deactivating those things is that you can extend the battery life - sometimes when I don't use the phone that much I can even manage to not charge it from Friday in the afternoon until Monday morning when I'm at work again.can also reward himself with burgers on my expense?

And for the record, your annoying friend can steal your wallet as well and pay for anything up to 25 euros using your contactless debit/credit card without even knowing your PIN. So if anything, Apple Pay is more secure than what you already have.
No offense but this is a load of BS. Obtaining someone's fingerprint requires way more effort than is realistically worth.Fingerprints are inherently unsafe technology and they still use it. This is something that will never go away, this vulnerability will always exist. If someone wants to harm you, they will take the time to take a fingeprint (or add their own finger if you should leave it unlocked). Otherwise there are always some bugs that allow you to bypass the pin and the fingerprint, but I am not sure what works and what has been solved.
Point remains: It's unsafe, Apple doesn't care and you shouldn't use it for your own sake.
You will also find that in most grocery stores you will not be able to shoulder surf your way to a card's pin. (Though I haven't said other methods of payments are flawless.)
If you need somebody to help you find stuff, you shouldn't be there. I avoid asking people for help in stores because it turns into a 30 minute issue that usually takes mere minutes.
So, tell me where the potassium permanganate is in your local hardware store?
Or powdered aluminum?
I'd bet you don't know where they are without assistance. Also, stores don't all carry these items in the same place.
The fact that you say that I hail cards as "oh-so secure" shows that you either didn't read my post and think in black and white patterns. I never said they are perfect, they are less vulnerable. Contactless payment is a really bad idea to begin with and the reason why there is a hole in my card - let's just clear that up.
.....Gaining access to your phone may not be as expensive or difficult as you imagine. Fingerprints are the key you duplicate and leave behind everywhere, I'm not sure why people aren't more concerned about this.
I got nothing against cards at all I have a problem with ignorance, and everything you sad so far shows that you are quite ignorant of the technology behind AP. Stealing my phone is about as simple as stealing my wallet (contains my cards) so again how is the fingerprint on the phone any less secure than a physical card? Not sure how it is in Germany but stateside all that is required is a signature and no minimum wage slave is going to give a damn to make sure its legit.What's with your war against cards? If I see you use your phone, all I have to do is wait for you to pay and get up, then I can swipe the glass and steal your phone.
That's a whole lot of ifs there buddy, also have you ever seen how often people use their phones? One will know a phone is missing in under 10 minutes and again under the most ideal circumstances you have one person's information.If you shouldn't notice the loss of your phone, figure out what to do and do it within ~ 30 to 60 minutes, odds are you never see it again.
Yep from guessing passwords not from swiping fingerprints... Not going to deny that not having a lock out for too many tries was a bad design choice however even with access to iCloud you can't actually get the card info.Also those nude celeb photos that got posted all over the internet didn't come out of thin air, they came from Apple's iCloud.
Yes there was a bug, it was patched. Bugs happen I never said they don't.Also this from earlier in 2014:
Then you are blind and you have yet to address how it makes any sense to target a single person's account(s) vs a massive database.As far as I can see you aren't really interested in the whole thing, you just want to win an Internet argument and I don't think I want to play along and provide you with one any longer.
When did I say that? I am saying AP is more secure than a straight up magnetic card due to tokenized transaction. I'm also saying that fingerprint ID on your phone is no less secure than having physical plastic cards, if you think it's easy to steal a phone then it logically follows that it is also easy to steal a card. That being the case what's easier getting my fingerprint and my phone or just my card (s)?If you enjoy to imagine Apple and their devices to be some god-like flawless entity, then that's fine by me, keep on doing what you do.
