PCMike 33: The Mobile Pay Revolution Has Begun
Dump those fat wallets and exchange them for your mobile wallet
Samsung and Apple are about to change forever the way goods and services are bought in the U.S..
The two may be competitors but their unique ways of using mobile pay is about to transform retail in the U.S. From Apple Pay to the just activated Samsung Pay, consumers are going to be able to have safer, more secure ways to pay for goods (much safer than handing someone your credit card) and they're going to be able to get special discounts and rewards that - besides convenience - will make it worthwhile.
Our main guest for this episode of the PC Mike Podcast is Silvio Tavares, CEO and President, The CardLinx Association. a nonprofit that works to educate consumers and retailers about various electronic forms of payment and loyalty programs. They recently put out a report called "Mobile Pay 101," and Tavares will explain why you will want this technology and want it right now.
Plus, Mike has the latest on Apples new El Capitan operating system, news that Twitter will soon let you use more than 140 characters and a strange case in Australia where the "unfriending" of someone was judged to be bullying.
Andrew Dietrich also checks in with the apps of the week and Verizon Uber User Paul Ulreich reviews three very cool types of bluetooth earphones.
