Owners of the iPhone 6 will be able to make payments at shops and restaurants with the help of near-field communication (NFC) technology. It will enable consumers to pay by just taping their phones on wireless readers.

Corporations like McDonald’s Corporation (MCD), The Walt Disney Company (DIS) and Whole Foods Market, Inc. (WFM) have already partnered with Apple, agreeing to install the compatible wireless readers. Moreover, Visa Inc. (V), MasterCard Inc. (MA) and American Express Company (AXP) will be collaborating with Apple in its new service. In addition, big banks including Wells Fargo & Co (WFC), Citigroup (C), JPMorgan & Chase Co (JPM), Bank of America Corp (BAC), among others have also signed up for the service.

Well...well..

1. Not everyone are interrested in using Apple.
2. Bitcoin give you the "Freedom" to use ANY phone.
3. Bitcoin use no central organization to manage your money.
4. Bitcoin transactions are transparent and users annonymous. {relative}
5. Bitcoin has a huge userbase and ever increasing adoption rate.
6. Bitcoin is a currency, not a payment vehicle.

Should we continue?

The wheels of the bitcoin bus go round and round and round........round and round.. round and round....  Grin
