  • Apple Pay Stirs, But Doesn’t Shake, the Mobile Landscape - PaymentsViews.com (George Peabody) - "Looked at it from the payment context alone, Apple Pay does not do a great deal more than what Softpay/Isis and Google Wallet have already achieved. But the combination of Apple’s design focus and its assumption of a reasonably non-threatening role within the payments ecosystem should make a difference."
  • MasterCard Loses EU Court Case Over Interchange Card Fees - Wall St. Journal - "Europe's top court on Thursday backed a decision by the European Commission to ban cross-border fees set by MasterCard on the grounds that they harmed competition."
  • How Apple Pushes Entire Industries Forward - HBR Blog Network (Maxwell Wessel) - "Apple used its power as an impatient convener to move an industry. Yesterday, Tim Cook showed that, like the White House, when Apple calls, you answer."
  • How Apple Pay works and why it matters for developers - Clover Developers Blog - "Apple Pay marks the first time a popular operating system is making payments a platform service for real-world, non-digital-good transactions, in a broad, inclusive manner that is compatible with the mainstream payments processing industry."
  • Apple Pay and the CFPB - Credit Slips (Adam Levitin) - "I think Apple may have just become a regulated financial institution, unwittingly. Basically, I think Apple is now a "service provider" for purposes of the Consumer Financial Protection Act, which means Apple is subject to CFPB examination and UDAAP."
  • 8 ways that iOS 8 will change mobile engagement - Mobile Commerce Daily - "Over the last five years, push notifications have grown from a developer tool to deliver alerts to users to become the most transformative marketing technology of the last decade, driving dramatically greater consumer response than traditional channels such as email."
  • Coinbase Expands Internationally, Now Available In 14 Countries - Coinable Blog - "Coinbase is now available in 14 countries. We’re adding 13 additional countries across Europe including Italy, Spain, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, Cyprus, Finland, Greece, Latvia, Malta, Portugal, and Slovakia."
