I’m glad Best Buy is joining Apple Pay and I hope more retailers come aboard. But it really was odd to hear you report on the news and completely ignore the fact that Best Buy is one of the only few remaining Apple Retail partners out there.

Anyway, I’m hoping Target is next because so far all the places that do support Apple Pay are not places I actually go to. So I haven’t had many opportunities to use it yet.
