This week we’re talking money, as Afterpay goes retro with its payments — but is it a good idea, and should it be regulated?
Meanwhile, Amazon, a company famous for making it frictionless for consumers to buy online is adding some friction by making Visa payments cost more… but will that cost Amazon?
Vertical Hold’s Alex Kidman also found out a surprising detail around Apple Pay this week, but he’s not sure if it’s super useful or super creepy. Maybe it’s both.
We’re also talking Microsoft, as the software giant goes in heavy on the hardware front with the Surface Pro 8, the Surface Laptop Studio, Surface Pro X Wi-Fi, Surface Go 3 and the surprising Surface Duo 2 phone!
