It looks like Apple Pay has gained a whole lot of traction ever since it was announced last year, and you can say that this service will literally take to the skies, as JetBlue has just announced that they will be the first U.S. airline that will accept the mobile payment system when it comes to in-flight purchases of “premium offerings.” After all, the airline did take notice that majority of the passengers happen to have their handset nearby whenever they purchased a snack or an amenity.
JetBlue noted that it does offer passengers “EatUp snack boxes and à la carte food options from the EatUp Café, premium beverages, onboard amenities and Even More Space seating.” Basically, as long as you own the Apple iPhone 6, the Apple iPhone 6 Plus and in the future, the Apple Watch, those hardware which play nice with Apple Pay can then be used to pay for such items. The flight crew will have an Apple iPad mini with special NFC-enabled cases which will run the the Inflight Service Assistant app, allowing such Apple Pay transactions to be made while you’re in the sky. How neat is that? [Press Release]
So you are more or less running out of time when it comes to picking up a Valentine’s Day gift for your other half. What are you going to do about it? Assuming that you are flush with cash, and have way too much money to spend in this lifetime, perhaps it is time you obtained a bespoke experience for your other half, and Goldgenie has got your back with the iPhone 6 Diamond Ecstasy Edition, where it has been touted to bethe ultimate Valentine’s Day gift, although I would not read too much into that claim since owning an island resort is also pretty swanky if you ask me, compared to a blinged out smartphone.
The iPhone 6 Diamond Ecstasy Edition will arrive in a choice of 24K Gold, Rose Gold or Platinum and embedded with hundreds of light-catching diamonds, where each of them will be specially customized according to the client’s wishes, ranging from a precious metal finish to stones that are cut to the exact style of embellishment and personal engraving. Apart from diamonds, you can also throw in the likes of sapphires, corundum, topaz, emeralds, rubies, tourmalines and tanzanite, now how about that? The asking price? From a “mere” £10,000 all the way to a whopping £2.3 million.
