I posted an article last week that speculated on NFC being in the new iPhone. Have seen a couple other articles with the same rumor. Previously said they favored beacon which works off your Bluetooth but maybe they will cover with having both available for broader coverage of apps and the merchant market. Might be a smart move.
Put some Leonard Cohen on and cheer up
If you look at the share price of NXP who are one of the leaders in NFC technology the market seems to think it's a good bet. If only I bought NXP rather than MONI.....
Amazon, Google play etc
My understanding is that Amazon and Google use technology developed by Bango to facilitate mobile payments, as does Facebook. None of this has helped Bango's share price which has fallen in a similar way to Monitise's. I hold share in both so it's a little depressing......
Better Amazon Story>>>

Apple and NFC
I am not sure if reference has been made to this information before. This seems on the face of it to be good evidence that Apple is finally going to adopt NFC . The implications for mobile money are obvious ! http://www.patentlyapple.com/patently-apple/2014/05/apple-invents-a-new-robotic-arm-testing-system-for-the-iphone-and-introduces-a-new-iphone-antenna-that-adds-nfc.html#more More about the China connection to follow £££££££
