I was hoping they'd mention the price:

"But they make the coolest adapters and they're only $29."

"$29? How does Apple manage to sell them for such a low price?"

Ah, my narrow-minded friend, as I said earlier, there is more to NFC than payment terminals. And the fact that the US is behind the curve here, doesn't mean it's not useful.

Make no mistake, when the iphone eventually has NFC, it will be the greatest thing ever, and we will come back to this article about the "so what" and laugh our [beep] off.

Your phone has NFC; why don't you buy a handful of NFC tags and give it a try? It will open your eyes.
Agreed; the payment aspect interests me almost not at all. The other, more personal, capabilities are what are intriguing.

I also agree that when Apple does include it, the world will marvel.

MOM THEY STARTED IT.

Quote:
"Samsung anticipates that it will file, in the near future, a motion to amend its infringement contentions to add the iPhone 5 as an accused product," the company said in a U.S. court filing.

"Based on information currently available, Samsung expects that the iPhone 5 will infringe the asserted Samsung patents-in-suit in the same way as the other accused iPhone models."

Samsung said in a separate statement on Thursday: "Apple continues to take aggressive legal measures that will limit market competition.

"Under these circumstances, we have little choice but to take the steps necessary to protect our innovations and intellectual property rights."

Like this?

Quote:
While riding to San Francisco’s AT&T Park on Wednesday, an alert popped up on my phone letting me know that the Giants game was nearby, even though I was still on the train nearing the ballpark.

As I neared the gate, I simply pulled out my just-updated iPhone and a bar code appeared that was scanned in, taking the place of a physical ticket.

Major League Baseball is among the first entities to try out Passbook, the iOS 6 feature that allows tickets, gift cards and boarding passes to be stored in a single spot on the iPhone.
Quote:
As other phone makers push near field communication to make transactions even more seamless, Apple has said it is focused for now on Passbook, which still requires the use of bar codes for loyalty cards, tickets and boarding passes to be scanned.

This talk of tags is pretty laughable. Like I'm going to glue a bunch of stickers to my car and house so I can turn off wifi for half an hour at a time. Please.

Where NFC could be genuinely useful today is for use on public transport. Paris, London, and Montreal—to cite only three cities—use RFID-enabled swipe cards to ride the bus and metro. An app that allowed you to buy tickets or subscribe to weekly/monthly passes using your phone, then swipe your phone across a reader to enter the station, would be a genuine improvement over the minor hell of transit cards and recharge stations that exists now. That is an implementation that would benefit millions.

Yes, I'm laughing at the folks who can't enjoy this technology by their own choosing. Of course, I wouldn't expect you to understand.

Because they chose to purchase a device without it?

Funny...makes it sound like they have a choice after all.

Now Apple is being accused of out right stealing the design for the iOS6 clock. So much for innovation:

http://gizmodo.com/5945008/apple-tot...s-6-ipad-clock


Obviously, they didn't steal anything from Google Maps and decided to go it alone:

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/...88J19U20120921


Be careful if you happen to be using Apple maps driving to the Norwegian town of Leknes.


Rough start for iOS6.
