    BBRY's market capitalization is currently <$6 billion. Chump change for Apple, which spent $3 billion on Beats.

    Of course, BBRY was worth much less than that at its lows a year or so ago and the stock market is on another bull run so it's not a great time to buy it now.

    NFC technology is just one element of Apple Pay. Blackberry has nothing even close to what Apple has created with Apple Pay. In fact, no one does. I can understand a certain amount of hate on Apple, but they have to get some props for Apple Pay, as they were the first to do NFC payments right.
    Done right would be securely, and that word just does not exist in the open garden of apple!!!!!!

    They out a nfc chip in their iPhone finally, and made up a name for making payments!!!!!! Nothing more nothing less!!!! Think pay pal and see if that stopped debit cards.........nope.

    Seriously not worth the hype, apple is FINALLY catching up with a nfc chip, nothing more.

    All publicly traded companies are for sale, all the time.

    Just takes buyers with money, and shareholders willing to sell.

    Buy enough shares, you own the company.

    BB10 as well as Android may be hurt if consumers want to use mobile phone NFC payment but merchants only accept Apple Pay.

    Popularity of Apple Pay does not necessarily follow the support of alternative payment systems, especially from an OS with <1% marketshare. Merchants may not want to deal with the administrative costs to support BBM Money.

    If an NFC payment system is (widely) available for Apple and not BBRY or Android, that is one more incentive for consumers to pick Apple.
    Merchants are not going to trip over themselves to support a product who's market share continues to fall everyday as apple is now less then 15%. To say merchants are going to support apple and not android which is greater than 80% is laughable. With the iphone6 looking like a 2012 android phone people are going to pass on the outdated iPhone6.

    That's exactly it. Apple FINALLY got NFC but in the end the iphone6 is nothing more then a 2012 android. I'm sure by 2016 apple will match an android phone that you can buy today. The isheep are simple minded people who are brainwashed by apple. Here is the proof.

    I agree and also doubt merchants will only support Apple Pay as the majority of the market is Android and as a business you wouldn't want to disenfranchise those users because they chose Android over iOS. There is also already push back from retailers as Walmart and Best Buy have already said they won't accept Apple Pay since they are developing their own system called CurrentC and that will be cross platform. Retailers already don't like the credit card fees they have to pay to process those transactions so I doubt they are enthusiastic to pay yet another fee to Apple.

    I see this as further strengthening the grip that Apple has over keeping people locked into the ecosystem, and it will pull more people in. While BlackBerry talks about Security, and has had NFC for a while now, Apple has gotten tons of partners prior to launching NFC and has made an entire system with it. Businesses know that Apple will do it right and people will live using their way of doing things. I could also see a lot of business users and companies wanting to have their corporate cards tied to something like this and have back end software to further simplify business expenses, tracking and repayment. BlackBerry needs to start leveraging the or strengths into practical applications instead of talking great games, demo'ing lots of vaporware, and watching everyone else make the technology practical and useful.

    People are focusing on the NFC point far too much. If Apple had its way it probably would've used something propriety like AirDrop to do the payments but since that would cost an insane amount to get everyone to jump on board they have lobbed NFC in since that's the standard.

    Their whole system is better than everyone else's. Accept it. Stop arguing about it.

    Clutching at straws and repeatedly saying they're late to the game with NFC ain't gonna change the fact they have implemented a system that is better than the competitom. Just look at the backing they are getting from banks, or have all the major banks that have joined drank the kool aid and now don't care about security any more?

    Must be the second one, the banks are now iSheep too!

    Errrmm no.

    Going up to someone and giving them an offer for their publically viewable car is different from them putting their car up for sale and taking offers.. yes it's not the same because you don't collectively own the car, but the 51% practically do

    Right now the people with the most shares who collectively make up at least 51% of BlackBerry, are not putting their shares up for sale..

    There is but Apple already has it's own things in place to combat it. The only thing it can't do is use NFC tags. Transferring of information is handled by AirDrop.

    Like I said, if they could work around it they probably would. If they could use Bluetooth LE for instance they wouldn't have even put an NFC chip in it. But since that would've cost Apple a fortune or companies a fortune it was a no go. And it helps that NFC is being widely forced across the US.

    Like I've said, stop focusing on the NFC. That's one very small piece to the puzzle. The larger picture is their implementation of how the pay system works. For that read everything app_developer has wrote. Or, if you want, don't and just repeatedly ignore some extremely good information that's been wrote down to carry on knocking on a company.

    Because your favourite company didn't do it this way doesn't mean you can't be unbiased and praise someone else. Remember this will probably benefit ALL of us.

    Hmmmm... wonder why?

    Could it be perhaps that the current share price is so far below the price at which many undoubtedly bought that they would lose substantially if they sold on the open market?

    Buyouts and takeovers happen all the time - it doesn't require CEO to post a "For Sale" notice in the press to "allow" it to happen (though that is pretty much what Thor did!). Chen himself said that if someone offered him $100/share he'd phone them right back. He was probably joking, but the point stands. All publicly traded companies are for sale, all the time. A buyer willing to offer the "right price" to acquire the shares will then own the company.

    Yeah, this is no big deal. It's not like it's the biggest bank in the US or anything like that. LOL, when it comes to Apple, it is always someone else's fault.

    The double billing is yet again an epic failure by Apple.

    It was about 1,000 transactions that were affected, a very small fraction of one day usage on debit cards only.


    Epic failure? Really?

    What part of my post failed to get the point across that its not Apple's fault. The fix has to come from BOA.
