Posted on 09/13/14 at 01:57 am in response to Several Minnesota companies backing Apple Pay — is it safe?

I'm not sure this product is ready for prime time yet. I get to work with PCI compliance (Payment Card Industry) at my job and we've been waiting for tokenization for a long time. It takes the card information away from the merchant, eliminating a big point of entry for hackers.

But the iPhone 6 method takes a picture of your card, which, as Pat and Chris pointed out, just ain't that secure. Plus I would be very leery of lost or stolen phones, which is already a big problem. How...

Bob, I'm sorry to rain on your parade, but I've found your postings to largely be incomprehensible. They have more typos than a blood bank (old joke of mine) and they're so disjointed that it's hard to figure where you're going with your statements. You really need to work on some clear concise positions for issues. Right now it looks like you're an angry old guy who's railing against the machine.

And, quite frankly, that isn't enough.

It doesn't help any that the IP largely...

As a performer, then you know the value of a good presentation. Instead of performing on a stage though, this forum is your stage. Unfortunately though, at the moment your story line lacks focus and a cohesive thread to bring it all together.

On top of that you've added typos and grammatical errors, which errodes the message you're trying to convey. When you come to this particular forum on this particular website, you're hitting a very specific market. These people you're...

Hey, this is exhibit #1 on why we need less regulation on business, not more. Because, as everyone knows, we need to drill, baby, drill!

That depends on how deep the pothole is.

I see you also caught that linguistic slight of hand. McFadden doesn't make operational decisions for his clients, but he certainly advised them on which course of action to take. Why else are the clients paying his firm?

They're saying you don't have to follow our advice, but here are the economic pros and cons of doing so. I'm sure they also leave out the social costs of their advice too, concentrating instead on just the economic aspects.

It's always interesting to take a...

If Mills is so concerned about health care for his employees, then why is he working so hard to repeal Obamacare? It's a boon to Mills Fleet Farm's many employees who work part time and don't get health benefits as part of their compensation package.

The problem with Mill's approach to this issue is he's looking for a market based solution to the health care issue. Unfortunately, there isn't one. The only thing that makes any logical sense at all is a socialist solution: government...

Considering it's Congress, his comedy experience would be an asset. Although that might be more appropriate on the House side rather than the Senate.

Very well written and thought out, Ray.

The article cites fraking's impact on habitat loss, not climate change.
