Episode Info: Let's do...The News Apple Pay UK (http://thetechlog.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/apple-pay-uk-235x300.png)Apple released Pay into the UK wild this week, all in all, it was a successful launch. Sure establishments like HSBC missed launch day & Barclays sacked their CEO just to offer the service, but Pay is here and I love it. Having used in at Hotel Chocolat, a BP station and Nando’s, it’s fair to say that companies probably should have made sure their staff are aware that they now accept an additional form of payment.

For most retailers Pay UK payments are limited to £20 (±$30) lifting to £30 (±$45) this autumn, however, as merchants upgrade their payment terminals to accept more secure contactless protocol that limit will be removed entirely.   Watch lawsuit over iWatch & Google ad keywords After registering the “iWatch” trademark in 2008, Irish company PROBENDI is has started a lawsuit against Apple.

Basically, this company registered a trademark thinking they may one day build a smartwatch, but possibly hoping Apple would buy the trademark from them. Even tho Apple has switched its naming conventions to Product, the trademark is valued at a staggering $97 million. PROBENDI - have shelved a project to create an Android supported smartwatch (bearing the iWatch branding) until further notice - it should be noted that since registering the trademark in 2008 zero iWatches were displayed or produced to/for the public. — As a side note the Watch NZ releases on 31st July Logi Blok iPad case It's hard to deny that Logitech make great keyboard cases; its even harder once you’ve seen the Blok case for the iPad Air 2. As an Apple product owner you are often faced with a dilemma: Do you admire beautifully engineering, unrivalled build quality & sexy slim lines on your tech….or do you love your device so much that you have to hide it away from risk in a water, dust and bullet proof case. With the Logi Blok, you can have a beautifully retro / square cornereRead more »
