Amazon has some new potential delivery options with Amazon Prime Air. In the future Amazon is hoping that you will be able to get your packages that are under 55lbs in 30 minutes or less. No more waiting one or two days with your existing prime subscription. While Amazon already offers a similar service in select markets, this will be the first under one hour delivery. Although the drone is currently facing tons of red tape from the FAA, we should hope to see the drones soon.
It’s finally here! A little under a year ago the Xbox One launched with promises of the Halo trilogy to return in 1080P 60 FPS. Well guess what.

Most merchants have disabled the ability to use NFC in response to Apple’s new Apple Pay. Not only are they not allowing Apple Pay, they are completely disabling or tweaking their NFC card readers to disallow NFC payments. Along with that, it will disable cards that have NFC chips enabled in them.
Here’s a list of places that already disabled NFC payments:
Kmart (They are trying to go out of business)
There is a reason they are disabling this. The retailers through a joint venture have decided to build their own mobile payment app. This one does not use NFC however, it uses QR codes. Really?

Now lets list all the currently confirmed CurrentC partners:
Bed, Bath & Beyond
Stop & Shop
That’s a lot of places. But why QR codes? Why not just use the NFC readers they already spent a ton of money rolling out company wide?
It’s a long time coming, but Starbucks has finally updated their app to support QHD devices. With millions of QHD screens on the market, It would only make sense to finally address them. Praise from LG G3 and Samsung Note 4 owners rang out on the web the other night when they began to receive the update. This is the main reason it has kept me from going to Starbucks.
Along side that, Starbucks added a small list of features that many goers have asked for in the previous months.
