Apple pay on Iphone 6 is unhackable because one would not only need the phone but the users fingerprints. Getting both is nearly impossible. Furthermore, "suspicious activity" on the users bank accounts are monitored by the banks just like they do credit cards. Apple pay does not "Store" information, rather it uses transaction based codes that can be used just once, after that the code is useless.
Nearly impossible to hack such a system. icloud and other servers can be hacked, but not Apple pay.
The Apple watch on the other hand is different, because it uses a password based authentication system.
IMO it would be foolish for anyone these days to store anything sensitive on a connected device.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
The Business Insider reports on the security features of Apple Pay in the smartwatch. Unlike the iPhone where the user holds their finger on the sensor for authentication, the smartwatch has no such feature. Instead it has four sensors on the watch's back that measure heart rate and the Pay feature is disabled when the watch is removed. Each time the person places the watch on their wrist they will need to enter a code to access the user's stored credit card data. So the first purchase requires more effort to use Apple Pay than just swiping a credit card at register, but that's beside the point.
More importantly it appears the entire security of this device rests on the complexity of the password the user is supposed to enter to re-enable the Pay feature. How complex is this code supposed to be? Four characters? Six characters? Eight? A common PC equipped with a modern GPU and appropriate tools can defeat all the above passwords in well under than a second. Even an eight character password composed of decimal digits, upper and lower case letter can be defeated in less than a minute on commodity PCs.
What is happening is that tech companies are so eager to push highly profitable services to consumers that they sacrifice the necessary security controls in order to make them easy-to-use. The end result is that vendor's poorly designed but highly profitable gear is pushing the cost and liability of fraud back to consumers through the banks that server them.
When far-reaching core vendors such as Intel and Microsoft step up, they can drive industry change better than can a closed vendor such as Apple. The IDF audience was pumped, largely because Intel used good stagecraft, and the result should be a more rapid advancement of the technologies that Intel wants to drive into the market.
will_amd_yu (Lucy) doesn't know the difference between relationship and cause and effect - always demonstrating a complete willingness to manipulate statistics into something that will appear to offset the fact that he has been consistently on the wrong side of the stock for at least 22 months.
The stock has moved up by $15.39 yet now he does a victory dance because of 30 cents in downward movement that didn't even result from the "cause" he cited.
Lucy longs to live permanently in his fantasy world in which the stock moves down simply because he suggests that it will move down. In the real world, stripped of his fantasies, he has become the laughing stock of the board - even surpassing Twinkletoes in buffoonery - for his daily predictions and comments.
Intel owns Lucy. Uncontrollable rage owns Twinkletoes. Both are a therapist's wet dream.
"After a technical analysis of complex wave patterns I am recommending INTC as a strong sell. The first PT is 17 USD per share on midterm view. The Longterm PT is below 10 USD - at 4.xx USD per share. Do your own due dilligence."

33 is coming by Friday
Friday's trading is done and Intel is at $34.62. This genius is wrong yet AGAIN. You could retire rich just doing the opposite of what this maroon says.
And because Apple did so well with iCloud we'll just take this on faith.

Sentiment: Strong Sell
Not so sure the SQQQ hits 40.00, if the markets do break down further, the SQQQ may only get to the 39's. ie about the same point of the 50 day for the QQQ
Intel Corporation declares $0.225 dividend • 9:19 AM
Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) declares $0.225/share quarterly dividend, in line with previous.
Forward yield 2.57%
Payable Dec. 1; for shareholders of record Nov. 7; ex-div Nov. 5.
Tomorrow will be bright and sunny. Sunday too, Monday is an entirely different story.What is fairly certain is that Waldo will continue his nonstop INTC pumping with cut and pastes while actually doing nothing of any significance.
"I want to leave you with this point, though. It isn't about technology or product. It's incredibly important for executives to step up during events such as IDF. By doing so they honor their people, investors and customers, and they set a level of excellence. That should help Intel perform at a very high level once again."
"Another ARMH day in the red. If we have a correction Humpty will drop below $40."
ARMH outperforming INTC and NAS today. What will INTC drop below if we have a correction? 28?
