    Apple's fresh Apple Pay NFC-based payment system is gaining traction in the United States, and we're now hearing news that the service will roll out to users in the United Kingdom in the first half of next year, as well. The Telegraph was the first one to break the story:

    At the moment we don't know which banks specifically are in talks with Apple, but it's been said “at least one of the biggest banks” is currently negotiating with the company. However, there are several executives that fear Apple wants to take over the banking industry.

    At the moment, Apple Pay accounts for just 1.7 percent of the mobile payments market after its launch on October 20, still lagging behind Google Wallet’s 4 percent share of the market, according to recent data from ITG research.

      That sounds nice :) . I foresee at least two problems. Firstly that my bank is bound not to join in and secondly that I haven't got any money in it in the first place :( .
