Dunno but I still think it's easier to use Apple pay and sign vs digging a card out.
Not for me. I can scan my card and put the pin in while they are still ringing up items, so there is nothing for me to do after they are done except say "debit." The point of Apple Pay is that it's fast and convenient and the transaction is complete the moment you use the Touch ID.

Not for me, I have my phone on hand way more than my wallet, it's easier for me to use my phone then sign vs digging for my wallet, find the right card and swipe then put everything away. We are all different...

There is a lot of downtime when you're standing in line to grab a card out of your wallet, swipe it and put the pin in all before they are done scanning items. But either way, let's not forget the point here. The transaction should be complete after using the Touch ID. We shouldn't have to sign, give any personal information or do anything in addition to using the Touch ID. It doesn't bother you at all that it isn't working as it is intended when they make you sign?

Yes it bothers me, I agree, my point is that I don't see this as a big deal, the process is new and as confidence by merchants increases we may see the signature go away.
 
Exactly. If I'm going to have sign for a debit card Apple Pay purchase, I may as well just use my actual debit card and pin in the card reader.
But the real advantage of Apple Pay over the card has nothing to do with the time it takes to sign or take out the card, it's that Apple Pay uses a token that shields your card info from being seen and captured by the vendor. Your info can't be disclosed if/when they get hacked. It's a significant security advantage.

Yeah, from a security standpoint is safer than any other electronic method. I guess I just want the best of both worlds. I'll continue to use it wherever it's acepted. It just irks me a bit that I'll have to sign when I shouldn't have to.

I beg to differ my friend. do you research and you will find that the bitcoin network has never been hacked and it never will be hacked. now if you keep your bitcoin wallet on a online account like say "mtgox" or something like that and they hack mtgox which has your bitcoins then of course your bitcoins are going to stolen. but that doesn't mean that the bitcoin network was hacked. that just means you put your bitcoins in the wrong place.
here are 2 very good videos to help you.
on a side note as you can see by my sig. i have no problems posting my own bitcoin wallet info that currently has over 50k in it now. that 50k is free to anyone who can hack it.
well it's only been 3 years since i made this post just wondering if anyone here took my advice and invested in bitcoin. 3 years later bitcoin is now worth 6,000 per coin only 5,800 more than in oct 20,2014 when the price was approx 250-300usd
