Apple is celebrating the 103rd anniversary of the U.S. National Park Service with donations, an Apple Watch Activity Challenge, and more.
From August 17 to August 25, the first 100,000 transactions at Apple retail stores, the online store, or the Apple Store app will donate US$10 to U.S. national parks.
We’re celebrating our national parks with a $10 donation for each Apple Pay purchase at an Apple Store, on apple.com, or through the Apple Store app in the U.S. from August 17 through 25. Limited to the first 100,000 transactions. Subject to $10 minimum purchase.
I think this is great. U.S. national parks could soon get a big US$1 million donation.
Goldman Sachs uses your credit score, credit report, and your self-reported income when it evaluates your Apple Card application.
At Black Hat 2019, researcher Joshua Maddux found that security vulnerabilities can arise when websites add online payment integrations like Apple Pay. To be clear, he says it’s not an issue with Apple Pay itself, but rather how websites add it. And other third-party integrations can be similarly affected.
The flaws fit into a well-known type of vulnerability called “server side request forgery,” which allow attackers to bypass protections like firewalls to directly send commands to web applications. These vulnerabilities pose a real threat, and are regularly exploited in the wild. Most recently, they played a role in last month’s massive Capital One breach. Similarly, flexibility in how a website integrates Apple Pay potentially exposes its own backend infrastructure to unauthorized access.

I’ve written musings here and there about the cashless society, but sex work as an affected industry hadn’t crossed my mind. I think it’s an important conversation to have, though. I wonder what an alternative could be? Special jewelry with NFC chips that can accept peer-to-peer payments? Imagine tipping a stripper with Apple Pay. Sorry Tim Cook.
But without cash, the club I work at is free to exploit. Cash handed directly to a dancer gets pocketed, but credit card charges are skimmed—and because workers are more or less off the books, we have no recourse to contest absurdly high fees. When a customer pays several hundred dollars to spend time in a dark room alone with a dancer, the club takes a 70 percent cut.
