This PDF goes over those vendors that support Apple Pay in their stores or will before the end of 2014 - The Forces of Good.  Vs those that are part of MCX - which is not going to support Apple Pay - The Forces of Evil.  

 

The easiest way to let those forces of Evil know what you think is to speak with your wallet iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus - and use Apple Pay at their competitors.  

 

More about this on the next episode of Today in iOS.

9.9.2014 Apple Event Rumor Bingo

Click to get larger version

 
First - I would like to point out - not everything on the bingo card are things I think will happen. Some actually conflict with others. However, these are the top rumors out there leading into the 9.9.2014 event.  And no there is no Apple TV listed - it actually just missed the cut.
 
For those items I think are most likely to happen they are:
 
- 4.7" iPhone 
- 5.5" iPhone
- A8 Processor with M8 Motion Processor
- Sapphire Glass - even if just for one or two specific options of the iPhone.
- 13 MP rear Camera
- iWatch - announced - and it being available in Dec 2014.
And
- 128 GB Version of the iPhone finally.
 
Those are the ones I think are the most likely to happen - and if they did - we get an X on the bingo card.
 
Others likely to happen.
 
- iPhone 4S killed off.  But I think the 5C and 5S remain active and for sale.
- iPhone Power button moves to the side of the iPhone from the top.
- 4.7" iPhone available on Sept 19th.
- 5.5" iPhone not available until the end of October.
- iPhone 6 and iPhone Air are the names for the 4.7" and 5.5" respectively.
- a Barometer is added to the sensors 
- Camera Sticks out of the iPhone and is not flush with the back.
- 2 GHz clock speed for the A8 - but not actually announced at the event.  
And
- Apple introduces a reversible USB cable.
 
 
Others that might happen listed are:
 
- Light up rear Apple logo
- Wifi 802.11.AC - hold over from last years bingo card.
- 4k Video recording and 4k video out - also hold overs from last year
- NFC - again a holdover from last year and the year before.
- 12 Hr 3G talk time - Yup Hold over from last year as well. 
- 2 GB Ram - You guessed it hold over from last year. 
And finally
- iPhone 6 and 6L are the names used (I don't think that will happen)
 
Again Definitely not all these rumor will come to pass and if history repeats itself most will not.  But some will. 

 
 
For those sight impared here is the actual layout of the bingo card going left to right.
 
Top Row:
4.7" iPhone
