Yup. I was mostly talking about NFC *payments*, and adoption thereof at Real Actual Retailers. Even banks that had issued NFC cards had stopped because nobody was using them. (and now they're rolling them right back out)

I fucking loved S-Beam btw

No, I said that you need a critical mass of people who are stupid and old or some combination thereof in order to indroduce technology to the general public, and that it's necessary to lock down the product to make it marketable to those people. Quote me correctly, especially if we're going to be using words like "elitism"

My iPad Pro is the best tablet I've ever owned. I've had 4 android and 2 windows tablets and the iPad runs laps around them.

Apple seems to be a trigger for a lot of people around fedi and I don't really understand why. The product they sell sorta has to be closed as fuck. It's a Fisher Price phone for people who don't into technology. If it wasn't sealed and locked down, stupid, old, and old stupid people could hurt themselves or get scammed. Now while it's easy to say "its their right to be stupid and get hurt", it's also their right to purchase a device that won't let them do that. And we're right back where we started.

And you need that critical mass of Average Fucks in order to have any weight to get any sort of standard to stick. Notice how many times NFC (and every other God forsaken form of mobile payment) fucking bombed before Apple threw their logo on existing technology?

@crunklord420 Why would you change a perfect holy work? God would not have killed Terry if he wasn't finished.
