7: Accidental Retail Podcast
Why can't we all Apple Pay everywhere all the time? John, Lex, and Dan discuss the vagaries of the retail experience.
43:58 | 26.9 MB

SPOILER: We do not talk about the latest Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer this week. That's going to be next week. And we will talk about it because Ultron is a robot and a robot is technology. Q.E.D. It's unassailable logic.

In a vain attempt to alleviate our problem with cross-talking in this podcast, we go video. Which you can't see except for a screenshot here.

What we really discuss this week is Apple Pay. Dan compares it to a system called Level Up. We also talk about Square, because we're so thorough. Lex thinks he's going to like Apple Pay when he finally gets it because it means he only has to touch his own feces instead of everyone else's. The good news about Apple Pay is that you might be able to add your wife's card even if you're not authorized on it.

Surprisingly, the iPad Air 2 includes an NFC chip, even though it apparently doesn't do anything yet.

Speaking of not doing anything, in New Jersey and Oregon you can't pump your own gas.

We discuss the menu at McDonald's, which we know people have been clamoring for us to do.

Dan ordered himself an Amazon Fire TV stick. Lex and Moltz have both ordered a Kano for one each of their kids. They don't think Dan could handle it.

Siri can give you predicted sports outcomes but it turns out they're not very good.
