How Hackers Could Get Around Apple Pay Security
The wallet is dead, long live Apple Pay! As we discussed in our last post, Apple Pay will have to overcome a lot of obstacles to become a viable mobile payment system. Not least of those problems is the issue of security. Cadie Thompson writing for the Entrepreneur lists some potential vulnerabilities in the Apple Pay system.
Take away: Apple Pay uses a lot of clever technology to make it secure, but no system is 100 percent safe. Apple Pay’s system does make large scale breaches like Home Depot less likely. If your store is planning to accept Apple Pay you need to worry about smaller scale fraud. I still think the lack of NFC infrastructure in stores is a bigger problem initially.
Apple Watch 2 Rumours Start, 6 Months Before Apple Watch Release
The title says it all. The rumour mill has already started on the next iteration of the Apple Watch. Rumour mongers not satisfied with the conventional passage of time have decided to jump the gun and proclaim that Apple Watch 2 will feature more biometric sensors.
Take Away: Surprisingly, Apple Watch 2 will be an improvement on the first generation Apple Watch.
Putting the gram in Instagram
Instagram is the internet’s repository of pictures of cats, meals and fixed gear bikes. It also happens to be a really convenient and popular way to sell drugs. VentureBeat’s Fletcher Babb reports on the thriving Instagram drug market and how little the Facebook owned company is doing to stop it.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Cats
Cats, pizza and youtube. It’s a match made in heaven and a wonder that no one has done it before. Pizza Hut in Japan has opened a cat run branch and the results are as cute as you would expect.
Have a gooi weekend!
