The Auto industry is about to begin a revolution
If you've been following our blog, then you're probably as excited as we are for Apple CarPlay to hit the market. We know that Google has developed their own companion software named "Android Auto" but it's not as far along as Apple Car Play. Recently an article was leaked on Macrumors that features information on GM chief "infotainment" officer Phil Abram stating that upcoming Chevy and GM Chrysler models will offer full compatibility in "more models than any other brand."
For the 2016 model year, Chevrolet will offer Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility in more models than any automotive brand. The 14 Chevrolet models include the all-new 2016 Cruze, which will debut on June 24. Cruze is Chevrolet’s best-selling passenger car, with more than 3 million sold since launch.

Samsung is in trouble
"During its Wednesday earnings call, Apple rival Samsung Electronics reported net profit of 4.63 trillion won ($4.35 billion) for the January to March quarter, a 39% drop from its net profit of 7.49 trillion won in the year ago quarter." Says credible reporting blog www.macrumors.com. Over the years though Samsung has become more involved with the building and manufacturing end of popular consumer electronics, especially where Apple iPhone family is concerned, but they haven't been able to sell their own phones on the same level that Apple has. It's a popular business model in Asia to seek a vertical monopoly over any given area and based on the years of corporate assassinations we've watched occur, there's evidence that strongly supports Samsung is part of a phone industry takeover. Some would argue the rising popularity of the Apple ...
Apple is working with Nordstrom to create an Online Payment Network
No, you didn't misread that post. Apple is working with Nordstrom to create an online payment network that all sources believe to be token based. It's going to be an interface similar to paypal and it will function the same way for Apple users. This is another step Apple is taking to bring their users closer together and offer greater advantages to their users that Android users wouldn't have. The service will work well with all of the upcoming accounting and wallet features that will be unique to Apple users (not unlike Google Wallet).
Tokenization instead of Interchange Processing?
As opposed to credit card processing in the normal way that you think of it, where card #s get routed to the bank along with a unique transaction ID, think about the ...
