iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Fail Drop Tests



Immediately after the start of sales of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in several countries, first drop and crash tests began to appear on the Internet.

Apple Pay to Cause End of Physical Bank Cards Era?



According to what the CEO of mobile banking startup called Moven writes, the introduction of Apple's payment service could possibly mean the end of plastic bank cards in the next two or three years.
