Episode 20: Mobile Payments for Fun and Profit
And I made it Square.
For our twentieth regular show, our main topic is mobile payments...Apple Pay, Venmo, PayPal, etc. Where have we come from and where are we headed? We talk about the mobile payment revolution that has taken over the world (and drags the USA kicking and screaming along...) Dan join the iPad Pro club, Apple officially blesses third party iPhone repairs, Airlines continue to give side eye to the 2015 MacBook Pro, the bug bounty program expands, and Siri is still listening. In the HomeKit chronicles, its a trip to Sweden as we talk about Ikea's new smart home division, the lack of announced HomeKit support on their new blinds, and Jake reviews the Symfonisk Bookshelf Speakers. We hope you enjoy this deep dive into the world of mobile payments. Don't forget to join us for our special coverage of the Apple Event on September 10, which we plan to livestream on YouTube. Also, special thanks to Antiwraith for all of his amazing hard work in getting this podcast off the ground!!
