Apple restricts new iPhone 6 NFC to Apple Pay only [How Stupid Can One Company Be?]

Oh wow, apparently Apple has confirmed that it’s new iPhone 6 NFC implementation is locked to work with only one app, the Apple Pay service. Oh my oh my. This is rather like locking Bluetooth to work only with an iPod, and we can’t help feeling that Steve Jobs must be spinning at several thousand RPM right now, as this incredibly dumb move goes down.
