SAMSUNG PAY (worth revolutionizing our payment methods?)


SINCE 8 November 2016 (demonetization date in India),cashless payment methods and internet banking had taken new heights and companies like Paytm and quickcharge etc. are working hard  to bring the comfort of payment to the smart phones lying in your pockets.
These apps (after installing in your devices and after filling your banking details for transactions and all)  can help you pay your online bills, recharge your services and take or give cash from one to the other person etc....
But when these applications can provide you with all these great services then what is so special about the upcoming Samsung electronics' initiative namely SAMSUNG PAY.(does not include any paid promotions).




SAMSUNG PAY

  • An initiative by Samsung electronics.


  • It let users make online payments using compatible phones and basically works the best with Samsung devices.
  • This service of Samsung does not only allow you to make con-tactless payments but also incorporates an electromagnetic transmission system that makes it accessible on payment terminals(only magnetic stripe supporting ones).
FUN FACT o.1 - Samsung PAY was initially developed by an crowdfunded startup company, LoopPay.
  • Samsung acquired the Samsung pay from LoopPay in February,2015.
  • LoopPay believed that there MST(magnetic secure transmission) technology would work with about 90% of all point-of-sale in United States.
FUN FACT 0.2 - SAMSUNG PAY WAS FIRST LAUNCHED IN KOREA ON AUGUST 20,2015.
followed by   -                                                                                                                                               United States,China,Spain,Singapore,Australia,Puerto                         Rico,Brazil,Russia,Thailand,Canada,Malaysia.


AND NOW ON MARCH 6,2017 WE FINALLY WELCOME IT IN INDIA.
  • On May 2016, it was reported that Samsung was developing a smaller version of their PAY service which will be used for online payments only.
  • On January 2017,Samsung confirmed that this smaller version of the service would not be only available on galaxy devices but also on other android devices which will be running lollipop or above versions of android and have a resolution 1280 x 720 pixels or higher.
  • Samsung Pay works the best with their own mobile phone range including -
  1. Galaxy series.
  2. On series.
  3. J series.
  4. Note series.
  5. and any other series which belongs to Samsung Electronics.(but definitely not with any non-smart cell phone series.) 

  • Samsung declares that it will bring Samsung PAY properties of NFC and MST technology payment to its smart watches series.So the comfort of payment will be bought to your wist.


Here is the link that will provide you with the full setup and usage of the service on your probably compatible device-  http://www.samsung.com/in/samsung-pay/ (doesn't include any paid promotions.)
 
hence let us bring it to the conclusion -It looks Samsung is revolutionizing the way we pay by making it more comfortable and relaxingBUT, the truth is something else.Samsung is not the only company which is thinking about revolutionizing the way we pay as there are a bunch of companies which can be seen to deal with it.

 ANDROID PAY by Google - It gives almost all of the android phones the power of tap-to-pay purchases with NFC technology.




APPLE PAY by Apple - Apple PAY is a service initiated by Apple to make payments in-person easier.It only supports ios devices.It sought to replace all other methods of payment like magnetic stripe, credit cards, debit cards or any other method by pure contact-less method. 


MICROSOFT WALLET by Microsoft - IT is a service initiated by Microsoft that let users make payments and store loyalty cards on certain devices.It currently runs the HCE(host card emulation) technology for storing loyalty cards in certain devices (which in my means is pretty impressive).Mostly similar to android pay.




These are some of the services initiated by well-known companies to make the way you pay a lot easier. But, the problem is that even not one of these are till now (March,2017) available in India.

So lets see how Samsung pay establish itself in India and will it be able to reach our aspirations.

Thanks for reading.
Keep up for more awesome stuff.
Don't forget to put your valuable comments down below.
PEACE.....

Anode Ray Experiment

→Anode ray experiment was conducted by E Goldstein. →These rays are also known as canal rays. →This experiment helped in the discovery of the proton. Apparatus Used A discharge tube  was taken in which there were 2 electrodes i.e. Anode(+ve) and the cathode (-ve). The tube was filled with an inert gas. A perforated or porous cathode was used. A layer of zinc sulphide was placed at the back of the cathode. There was a vacuum pump in the tube. High voltage (5000v-10000v) was allowed to flow through the system. It was observed that when the gas was at 1atm(atmospheric pressure ) no change was seen in the tube.  When the   pressure   was decreased inside the tube, a glow could be seen at the back side of the cathode.

Isotopes, Isobars and Isotones

Isotopes These are elements which have the same atomic number but different atomic mass . They have the same atomic number because the number of protons that are inside their nuclei remains the same. But, they have different atomic mass because the number of neutrons that are also inside their nuclei is different. As the number of protons inside nuclei remains same, therefore the overall charge of the elements also remains same as in isotopes: no of protons = no of electrons . Hence, as isotopes overall charge remains neutral, therefore their chemical properties will also remain identical.   Therefore, Isotopes are chemically same but physically different.

The Inverse & Reciprocal TRIGONOMETRIC Functions

So, this is my second post on trigonometry. In this post we're gonna cover the reciprocal and the inverse Trigonometric functions. If you haven't seen my first post you should definitely view it as it covers the basics of Trigonometry The Reciprocal Trigonometric Functions The reciprocal Trigonometric function of Sine is Cosecant, of Cosine is Secant & for Tangent it is Cotangent. Cosecant (Csc θ = 1/Sin θ) or (Hypotenuse/Opposite) Secant (Sec θ = 1/Cos θ) or (Hypotenuse/Adjacent) Cotangent (Cot θ = 1/Tan θ) or (Adjacent/Opposite) We can also represent Tan θ in another way. As Tan θ = opposite/adjacent  & Sin θ = opposite/hypotenuse  & Cos θ = adjacent/hypotenuse ∴ Tan θ = Sin θ/Cos θ (The hypotenuses cancel out) As Cot θ = 1/Tan θ  So, we can also represent Cot θ as Cos θ/Sin θ.

Rutherford Alpha Ray Scattering Experiment

Rutherford Alpha Ray Scattering Experiment Hey, Guys, most of you might have heard about the alpha ray scattering experiment and if you want to know in detail about Rutherford's model and the experiment he conducted, this is the right place for you... But first: Things You Must Know Some basic information that will help you understand rutherford experiment properly: Proton is a sub-atomic particle which is positively charged and has a mass of 1u. Alpha particles are helium atom with a charge of +2 as they have lost 2 electrons. Alpha particles have an atomic mass  of 4u. Gold is highly malleable and can be beaten into very thin sheets. Experiment Rutherford conducted his experiment in the following way: Rutherford took a very thin gold foil and bombarded it with high energy alpha particles. He placed a layer of zinc sulphide on the walls where the experiment was taking place because when alpha particles strike zinc sulphide layer, it results i

Sectors of Indian Economy

Hey there all the tenthees. You guys must be facing a lot of pressure as it is a board class as quoted by many teachers. You need to take care of each and every stuff including the small stats too. But unfortunately most of the Economics books we got do not have the graph 3 for the chapter Sectors of Indian Economy. No worries guys you came to the right place. We are providing you with the graph of December 2015 edition which is the latest graph which we need. All the best for your board exams and here you go Once again All the very best guys !!!

Cathode Ray Experiment

This experiment was conducted by J.J. Thomson (Sir Joseph John Thomson) in the year 1897. This experiment proved that atom is made up of fundamental particles which are much smaller than the smallest atom 'hydrogen' This experiment helped to discover electron. According to J.J. Thomson, the cathode rays consisted of very light, small and negatively charged particles. He named the particles "corpuscles" which were later known as electrons

GLOBAL Telecommunications (texts topology) EXPLAINED!

messaging and texting is becoming a very easier and easier process nowadays as our typing speed has increased and delivering time is decreased.Speed entirely depends on us but ever wonder what actually happens to your typed message after you press a sent button. If not then its wonderful because today in this one we are going to discuss abut the same. So lets get started. TELECOM OF TEXTS  Actually the full path of your message after you have of-course typed it and press the send button can be simplified into a simple process which include many entities with different tasks to perform. well yes! that`s pretty much of the process and for the time being we would be continuing TO understand the same. HP 1 - Is considered to be the sender of the message or text. HP 2 -Is considered to be the receiver of the message or text of HP 1.
