Payments Gets Contextual, A Push From Google And A Miss With EMV

It is no longer “beginning to a look a lot like Christmas” so much as it looks entirely like Christmas everywhere you turn — a fact as distracting as it is festive. Something about the combination of twinkling lights, extremely discounted consumer goods and egg nog renders human beings increasingly less capable of focusing on anything not directly holiday related. The closer Christmas gets, the stronger the effect. Such that today, five days out, most of us sitting at our desks are straining to keep a clear mind focused on facts.
