Find NFC-compatible merchants around you with MasterCard Nearby

- 9to5mac.com

With today’s launch of Apple Pay alongside iOS 8.1, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus owners can now use their phones to pay for goods using NFC & Touch ID. Apple states that over 220,000 stores are accepting Apple Pay, but finding nearby merchants can be a bit difficult without referring back to our running list 24/7.
As it turns out, the MasterCard Nearby app has a map view of merchants with Contactless (read: NFC-compatible) POS systems where you can use Apple Pay. Restaurants, entertainment locations, gas stations, and other types of businesses are listed out in the app.
In a WSJ interview, Eddy Cue stated “there’s a lot to do here” regarding Apple Pay, but with the technology already working with the open NFC technology rather than depending on merchants to sign a deal with Apple, the current number of businesses with compatible POS systems is promising.

With great reward comes risk, and tech companies are probably pretty familiar with that sentiment. Each product, service, or device is a gamble on whether it will resonate, successfully separating us from our discretionary income, or languish on stockroom shelves, untouched.

The Droid series of smartphones is the long standing hardware love affair between Motorola and Verizon (which became official last year) to bring high-spec'd devices to the carrier. Droid devices aren't subtle. They often scream the word "premium," and the companies' newest collaboration, the Droid Turbo, is no different.
Who's making it?
Let's start off with the easy questions first. Motorola now has an exclusive partnership with Verizon to create the Turbo line of smartphones. However, with Motorola also working with Google on the recently announced Nexus 6, it wasn't exactly certain if the Turbo would be some sort of peace offering to Verizon, who is habitually left out of the Nexus party.
