by Brandon Russell | February 6, 2013

Jon R. is back with an all new show where he rants and raves on various topics in and out of the tech world. On this week’s episode, Jon rants about how mobile payments have failed to become mainstream and how fragmentation is ruining the service.

Since the introduction of NFC and Google Wallet, Jon has been itching to pay for lunch with his smartphone, but unfortunately can’t find a unified option to do so. There are too many steps and too many compatibility problems that make it near impossible to perform a successful mobile transaction.

Will mobile payments ever take off and become the primary form of payment for consumers? All this and more in this episode of Rants!
