Should You Start Accepting Apple Pay?
"One of the reasons why I'm doing this lesson today on apple pay is it's something that I actually looked into a few months ago. I did a massive amount of research on. This is worth actually incorporating in our website in our payment process. Depending on your website could be something as simple as just flipping a switch or a custom solutions is can take some time and money in our case it's the latter. So I wanted to make sure before we invested the time in adding apple pay that is actually the right time to do it something that we should do now and will benefit us in the future. So I did all the research for you. Let me tell you what I think first of all, let's talk a little bit about apple pay is applebee's basically apple's mobile Wallet most of US know about apple pay because it's either incorporated in a iphone that you have or somebody you know that has an iphone were they pay Vajpai wave where they just you know bring their phone to credit card machine and a charges their account. This is just one aspect of apple pay, which is the NFC aspect the near field communication aspect where basically it's like the tap and go technology but apple pay is a lot more than you can actually pay via apple pay if you're an apple device for online transactions because has already secured safely your credit card information and really with a double click on your phone or A click of a gun on a laptop with a touch ID, you can pay for things the fast way you could pay for anything and many big websites have caught on said, wow, this is actually a very, very fast way for people with apple devices to pay for goods I'm talking about online websites not even in physical stores. If you're in a physical store is a no brainer. You need to have NFC technology where you have tap and go where you're utilizing the whether it's apple pay or competitor like Samsung's. Even some credit cards now that have that built in but when it comes to your online store, apple pay again is a fast way for people to just use the stored information that's on their device on their computer on their phone or on their ipad to pay for things with a single click. Now, what's intriguing about this technology is basically allowing your customers to have as fast as a checkup process as they do with something like Amazon where They save all your credit card information you add to car or you just pay immediately and it's done. Amazon's really locked that down and it's the one of the reasons why they have such rapid growth and Jeff visas as one of the richest men that ever lived in the history of humankind and that technology that fast checkout is one of the reasons why Amazon so successful. So imagine you can borrow the experience in put it into your own. Website and that's really why I wanted to look into this because it really allows people to have a seamless checkout experience. The step where you at your payment details online for any transaction is the step where you're going to experience the most friction. This is where there's the most likelihood for people to abandon car. You can remove that friction altogether with something like apple pay you are one step ahead you're really gaining a competitive advantage from your competitor. And allowing your customers have a better experience. Now, of course, this is only relevant for those who have vices, and of course, apple pay should be an additional form of payment. So they can pay by credit card that you pay by apple pay. You might even want offer pay pal. The point here is is that it should be in addition to traditional credit card payment and you might be thing wall You know how many people actually using this Will there's two stats that really compelled me to say this is an important thing to implement in your website number one, five percent of all transactions online are paid with apple pay already in two, thousand and nineteen it's five percent you can increase your sales. Simply by offering this okay. Second in just five years from now in twenty twenty-five, the projection is ten percent they're going to go from five to ten percent in that short amount of time one and ten payments online are going to be with apple pay. You might be thinking what else ago well, another thing that makes people believe the apple's going to take over the carless payment is the sheer growth of the company itself apples at a tremendous pace. It's already the most valuable company in the world just hit a two trillion. Dollar valuation the Most Valuable Company in American history apple has already started to sell products at all different price points and they're not just an expensive product. Now, where you know you buy an iphone for twelve hundred dollars, they have iphones for five hundred dollars. Now they have the I watched, they have ipads for four hundred dollars. The point is that they want to get you in the ecosystem as early as possible as many people as possible because in all of that they on the same kind of software that will incorporate. Apple Pace, you'll be able to pay for things on those devices. Even if it's a four hundred dollar device, it's not an expensive piece of hardware. So applebee's only going to grow and experts have already said that you know paypal still the leader in online transactions and online payments, but they're starting to lose footing an apple CERNA gain on them and it all has to do with the fact that it's so seemless in order for you to pay for anything on pay pal if you're on a website, you choose the. PAYPAL option, and then the next sends you to pay pal and then you've got to sign into your pay pal and then you've got gotta authorize and you have to confirm. So it's a few steps and then you go back to the car and then you check out with apple pay. The experience is literally just choosing applegate and checking out you know you're going to confirm on your device either through face id or with touch ID, and it's a done deal over.

"Some fifth about Jeff visas, not paying taxes or the Amazons profits aren't tax which they are. You ask me about how he's going to pay for his health care plan. And he makes up some story about some CEO's bonus. You. Asking about clean energy. And he tells them story about Burlington Vermont where in order to generate electricity. They actually burn trees you call them out on seventy seven percent tax rate on wealth. He says no that's somebody else that wasn't me his own Senate website brags about introducing legislation in January. So he has a real problem with the truth. Yeah. And he also was critical of Trump big time is is disparaging as you can imagine. I listened to what the I would say he doesn't act like seventy eight year old. I'll give him that. He has plenty of energy. I only gauges an issue with him. I don't know what found a youth season. But he looks great great. I'm not saying that that's an issue. Everything else is an issue. Art Laffer listen to his principles, and he's the accommodates that gave us applied side economics the Laffer curve and the Reagan boom, cut fourteen. I am very afraid that if he were elected we would have an enormous crash in the market now that crash would come in anticipation of his election, but it's much like Obama who I believe was the reason why we had the great recession as he got closer closer. Winning the markets collapsed. I don't know about that. I don't think Brock Obama did everything right leading up to that election win. He called Paulson Treasury Secretary. He he interacted with him democrat stepped up they had everything to do with causing it. It was a mutual assured destruction between them if there's a book out now that talks about that talks about what led by guiding her by Paulsen and one other expert which led to the crash they're still trying to figure everything out that happened in two thousand eight, but Barack Obama's policies of no shoveled projects bolstering up liberal causes trying to push forward of solar cars solar, energy and electric engine that type of thing I thought was a colossal waste of money. Give putting money into the states and just propping up state governments to keep people paid as opposed to digging people new roads, new bridges new tunnels that never took place. That's what scares me about the infrastructure talk. Not they we're going to do it. But that you gotta give money again away as going to go into these states and the states are going to have any permits. By the time, the permits get plugged get approved and the tunnels get set in the plans are made next thing. You know, there's nowhere to go with it.

If he would stop his paper the Washington Post from. Investigating. How the leaks happened? How the the stories about their relationship broke in the national choir because he abuse alleged that it was political. And that because he goes after the president in Washington Post that somehow because pecker is a friend a good friend of presence, which was somewhat established by the fact that now he's got immunity. Because it was the catch and kill stories allegedly again that he paid for. So they never see the light of day. So it wouldn't reflect badly on the president. So Bezos wanted an investigation Donna use Galvin Becker who is one of the all the celebrities whose Gavin. He's the guy who goes profiling to see if it's a credible threat or not. So Bs owes gets this thing looks like an extortion letter. Now, how does the after be to go after the guy with more resources? He has rockets guys a rocket company. He can have you killed put you in a rocket. Nobody will ever find you. But aside from that the man is worth a hundred and something billion dollars. I think one hundred thirty three will not really after the divorce sixty two billion dollars. Mrs Bezos is is worth a lot of money. But this guy has unlimited resources and he's not going to sit back. You think this guy is a patchy and it's going to sit back and not retaliate. This is going to be more this by the way, if you have an insight eight hundred two two. To to to some doesn't smell, right? The stories. Not that simplistic that just that he was trying to have the Washington Post reveal. He's doing this investigative journalism in how they found out about the girlfriend how they were reporting it, and then the American media didn't want that out there. So now they're going to extort him. So he puts out the whole Email chain, everything back and forth. So one of the emails that came said in the entrance of expedient in the situation with the Washington Post poised to publish unsubstantiated rumors of the national enquirers initial report I wanted to describe to you the photos obtained during our news gathering. In addition to the below the belt selfie, otherwise colloquial known as a pick the Enquirer obtained a further nine images. What makes me feel good? Is it even a guy like Jeff Bezos whose worth one hundred and fifty five billion dollars still insecure enough, and feels you gotta take pictures of your privates descend? I mean, really, wow. He's just you know, what? He has a guy put on his pants one time. Just like we do probably five guys who lift them up and lower them at the pants anyway. Mr. Beazley's face selfie at what appears to be a business meeting. Ms Sanchez response a photograph. I smoke a cigar, and what appears to be a simulated sex act. Shirtless. Mr. Bezos pathway. Wow. All right, holding his phone and his left hand while wearing his wedding ring. He's wearing either type black cargo pants or shorts.

Pubic reaching can be seen miss Sanchez wearing plunging redneck line dress revealing her Cleveland glimpse over another region. Mr. Sanchez Sanchez, wearing a two piece red bikini with gold detail dress revealing her cleavage, it would give editor pleasure to send an Email commonsense prevail in quickly. So they're sending this actually just saying if if you don't want these out, so what does visas do he puts it out? He puts out the whole chain and his response. And it's it's unbelievable. Here are pros proposed terms a full and complete mutual release of all claims that American media on the one hand, and Jeff Bezos and gamma detector on the other hand may have against each other a public mutually agreed upon acknowledgement from the bees owes parties released from usually agreeable, news outlet firming, they have no knowledge or basis for suggesting that American media coverage was politically motivated or influenced by political forces an agreement that they will cease referring to such a possibility. American media, agrees, not to publish distribute share described unpublished Texan, photos, they affirm that it undertook. No electronic eavesdropping connection with its reporting and has no knowledge of such conduct, blah, blah, blah. The agreement is completely confidential wrong you messing Jeff visas and by the way, good luck getting dollars dollar day prime delivery anymore. You're never getting a package that you ordered American. Meet. Where's my stuff? I ordered slippers. It didn't it didn't come in. I hope you didn't do the Amazon you're allowed in my hallway to drop off the present thing because then you're really up the creek without a paddle, man. So yeah. Yeah. He's accusing the national quarters, David pecker of extortion. This is not going well for Mr. Packer, and you should see the whole screed that he wrote something unusual happened to me yesterday. Actually for me. It wasn't just unusual. It was a I I was made an offer I couldn't refuse or at least. That's what the top people the National Enquirer thought, I'm glad they thought that because it's in Bolton them to put it all in writing rather than capitulate to extortion blackmail. I decided to publish exactly what they sent despite the personal costs embarrassment. They threatened. So he's putting it all out there. And I'm curious to see how this thing is going to play out. And how this thing is going to end. Because like I said, you gotta be a moron to play with Jeff Jeff Bezos can kill. You can kill you. Here's one of the ways you can kill you crumpling up one hundred dollar bills and throwing them at you for the rest of time because he never runs out. He can just water up and keep hitting your forehead until you slowly die like a water, torture because he's got that many. And he doesn't even. Have to look down to see if he's got any left because it's they just keep accumulating because of his wealth. So messing with him, man. I don't I don't get it. Like, I said he can shoot you into space. He can do whatever he wants, good luck. Getting a discount at whole foods. That's

"In it's important to point out because the F word has been used so much against this president some very important to point out that those who oppose him, whether it's as we said, you know, antique is supposed to be antifascist. They're closer to fascist then Trump could ever dream of. Because what do they wanna do? They wanna shut down free speech that they disagree with. The opposition to Trump is much more fascist then Trump could ever be and everybody on the left if you're listening. You knew you know, that's right. If you understand the separation of powers, you know, that's right. And you can't debate it. And when we brought this up, for example in the travel ban. How much opposition did we have how much pushback from the left when we explained it? None zero. Which means if you're on the left you understand that the judges that you support. Have the fascist mindset? Well, remember on the Iran deal? Do you believe that should be left up to congress? Yes. Do you think Trump should turn it over to congress? No, remember that the numbers dropped significantly. When you brought his name into it. Is there a fascist exemption because well, it's okay for fascist because Trump right, or if we have a cool guy in the office, then he can be a fascist because he doesn't, you know? And he's really cool. These judges though there in robes. It looked pretty cool there. Cool. So we can have cool fascist right? You can be a fascist if you oppose Trump, right? You can have fascist in California. You know, they're not going to actually send people to jail. Lynn it shouldn't be in the law, but they're not gonna use it. Then take it out of the wall, but they're not gonna use in the gender pronoun law. So we'll get to that coming up here. Plus senators say talking is better than not talking about the shutdown but they're getting nowhere. One democrat introduces a Bill to temporarily open the government how one universities says it has to reinvent itself, which means move away from liberal arts lefty shot how can you do that? Well, nobody's coming here for arts. Business has dropped dramatically. Yes, it's interesting because two pulls out there one shows that America's blaming Trump. And the Republicans more much more for the shutdown, but the other polling shows that support for border wall has increased significantly over the last year, another call for the president to release the declassified documents. WTO the wrong people have the money all the all the wrong people have the money. Okay. Which by the way is the dumbest comment ever. The wrong people. I'm sorry. Did those people earn it? Yeah.

"Let's get these tickets together. So I can sit next to you the entire time. Real quick question. I put this on my Instagram. What? Dogs lick us because they know we have bones inside of us, and they want them. It makes me a whole new appreciation for L A dog and how much she licks really maybe she really can smell that there's bones in the dog's not really like that much. In fact, my dog asteroids, she doesn't look at all really every once in a while, she'll just give me just a baby kissing. I'm the only one that she does because she's had she's always had problems with intimacy. My dogs lick now way more than maisy, but I don't really lick mine down. That's what it is.

"He's Gary McNamara. Hi, Eric Harley as we move into a Thursday Gerry. How're you not banning you, and I did some calculating here in our pre show meeting. Yeah. Figured out that under Jeff visas divorce settlement. Mhm his ex white should be able to finance one thousand wall. Yes, we have determined here. At the Red Eye Radio math headquarters, let's go to the math desk now. And we believe calculating based on what the reported wealth of Jeff Bezos is and what his wife of twenty five years will likely get in a divorce. She will be able to buy the wall. And also still get your deliveries within two days. Convection she'll be able to deliver the wall in two days for free. You know, what's interesting is the talk of of whether of how the divorce will be structured because she could end up. It's quite possible. With the being the biggest shareholder of Amazon does is at sixteen percent of the shares. I believe and this happened was Steve Wynn when he divorced his wife back in two thousand ten she ended up getting the majority more shares than than he did. So she had a bigger seat at the table. So the the real estate guy who on the dodgers, I'm blanking on his name. But his divorced basically forced the family to sell the dodgers. So that could be a big big deal. Remember when Amy Irving and Steven Spielberg got divorced two years. And at the time, it was the biggest settlement, and it was like, it was like one hundred million bucks. Unwritten million you live in a totally different neighborhood than Jeff Bezos. Now what what would it be? I mean, if they split it, isn't that seventy eighty billion base. So the wealth calculation is fluctuating it's like right because the shares go up and down, right, although Amazon, you know, was still there. Investors are still saying you should still by Amazon it's still growing, but it's anywhere between I saw estimates today anywhere between one hundred thirty five to one hundred and fifty billion. It was reported last year. Hundred and sixty billion worth a trillion interviewed sixteen percent. They write first trillion dollars, right? Right. Right. And so that's you know, it would make sense that then she would get eighty billion. She would get roughly half of that wealth, depending there there could be a pre-nup in place, but keep in mind that was twenty five years ago when they got married. You know, he did not have the the wealthy has today. But who knows maybe they did it just to do it? Maybe maybe it was trendy to prenups. So no one knows about the. The details of it just the rumors surrounding the National Enquirer story that's been circulating that he he was having an affair with the wife of a Hollywood agent. And so and and he said in his Bezos said in his tweet that they'd been separated for some time. Good luck to both of them. Just make sure my packages there in two days. Or less well here. Here we go coming up here. Trump apparently walked out of the meeting butts, not angry vice president Pence out and say, no he didn't storm out. He walked out. Yeah. He's the one that left, but he came into the meeting handing out candy to people. So we'll get to that New York Times story makes the point that we've been making I don't know for a long time new polling on border security. That's really interesting new report out Camila Harris to announce the run for president this month. Iraqi leaders urge the United States to keep a troop presence in their country. Well, we know what has happened. I mean, the fall of Mosul when it happened it lasted ISIS had control for thirty three months. You were the one that pointed out when when when Iraq gained remember that weekend. Something else was going on in the news and Iraq gained control of multiple over a weekend. And there again there was there was big news somewhere else. And that was a that was a kind of on the back burner. But it was a huge story you pointed that out, and we talked about it when they regained control over Mosul. But they know they know full, well what can happen? Well, I mean, this is the thing where you will have an primarily comes from the left not that it is not that. Libertarians don't bring it up at times that, you know, the United States by being around the world gives an imperialist, you know, imagery when it. Comes down to it. Even in a time where the media portrays United States as complete mess at Trump's in charge. It's just nuts. It's just infighting all the time when it comes down to it. The United States is still trusted as fair as being the leader in promoting democracy worldwide. You and I both said when we weren't working together. But it was when we went into Iraq. And I and we were doing different shows. But you know, you, and I've had the discussion on it. And we both said the same thing that if you're going to go in you better be willing to go in for decades. You cannot go into countries and then win and then leave because all you're doing is creating a vacuum. It's what we did in Iraq. It created a vacuum. We had to get back in again now. Yeah, there was pressure from a part of the of of the country in Iraq. You know for the United States to leave. But as we know because you, and I covered it in specific detail the United States under President Obama really wasn't pushing to stay at all. No, no. They really weren't. They really weren't pushing. They really weren't negotiating and the Iraqi government had no trust. In the Obama administration to commit so it got down to the point where they were. Well, we really can't trust this government. So we're better to be on the side of the public that says get out, and we wanna do this on our own now where are they in Iraq? And as you, and I've said before if you're going to be in if you're going to change a country that has been under totalitarian government for decades as Iraq was you need to stay in more than one generation. So you have generation of people that have lived under freedom, and they become accustomed to it. They know they know nothing else. But that not at they're going to be the US when they're on the other side of it. It's just that they have the freedom to make those choices. Well, I don't care if they're the US they become close enough to the US say start practicing capitalism. And and this is what we've seen with well up until recently. The new attitude by the Saudis, we'll see where that go right from from here. But but the idea is that you you have an entire region that could change shift drastically a drastically. And after that shift that would be lasting because you wouldn't. But what did we see in Iran with with the in in, you know, a young person from Iran who's who's made a great life. She's now citizen, right? Yes. She became a citizen. I think about three years ago. I haven't seen her in a long long time. But you know, the the point is is that the young people were discovering the next generation was discovering not that we had a presence in Iran, but the through the internet through communications, they were discovering different different cultures. I guess and and and they wanted they wanted more freedom in their life. Well, when by the time, she became a well by the time, she came to America, I mean within and I probably met her after she had been here. I'm. I'm about a year or two completely Americanized. But she, but as she told me, she said because I asked her I said, well, you know, said look talked me, do, you know. Do you hate is there a part of you that even though you came over here because she was able to come over because her she had family that was over here. And there was a certain window. She had to make that decision. She made it at like eighteen sushi kept she came over. And she said, no, we love the United States. And I said, well, then what's the problem in your country, and I'm quoting her? She said, it's our stupid, religion and our stupid government. And I said, well, how do you know this? She said we have the internet. I said can't they blockage? Go snow. They may think they're blocking it. But they can't they can't block it all over the country. She said, there's there's you know there. There's too many people in too many avenues for you to find out information now, which was again, I think it's an eye opener wouldn't you when you realize that? But when you look at rack, and when you when you look at any country once I start practicing capitalism, which means voluntarily you, you engage in in contracts with others for your mutual benefit for your own self interest, and you have to cooperate with each other. That's why we have talked about the fact that one of the biggest things that will come out of the United States becoming the world leader in in oil and natural gas is it will force other countries in the Middle East that didn't have to modernize. They didn't. Have to practice capitalism, which means when you practice capitalism, you have to cooperate with other people worldwide, which means you have to be open and accept other people's customs. And other and other people's ways you have to become more open to all other societies as we are here in the United States. And so that's the biggest thing that I think will come out of it is he's countries. And you see that push for example in Saudi Arabia. But I also think you see it quietly in a lot of other countries. Have you know, once they once they start doing it? And so if you know are people going to think exactly the same. No, they're not going to. But they end up. You don't want it again, there is no expectation people think the same. But you want them to be in the culture of what the culture voluntarily cooperating with other people and accepting people why because it's better for your it's better for your self interest. And and that's what capitalism does so.
