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.....

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

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.

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

Important Mathematical Constants!

Important Mathematical Constants Mathematical constants are those numbers that are special and interesting because they come up in the various fields of mathematics like geometry, calculus etc. These mathematical constants are usually named after the person who discovered it and they are represented by a symbol that is usually picked up from the Greek alphabet. Mathematical constants are by definition very important. In this article we will take a look at certain mathematical constants that are more commonplace than others. 1.       π (pi) or Archimedes constant (~3.14159):   π is defined as the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. This is probably the most popular mathematical constant. So π is the circumference of the circle whose diameter is 1 unit. You might have seen it popping up when calculating the area of a circle (πr 2 ) or the circumference of a circle (2πr). It has many uses throughout mathematics from calculating the area of certain shap

Paid Apps For Free ??

Everyone wants to play a game like GTA on iPad, it is easy on a computer to download such games but difficult on smart devices like iPad, tablet,  or smartphones. We can buy them but not everyone can buy games. But no worries guys there is a solution to this problem where one can have fun of playing games without spending their precious money .(underlined apps have downloading links  given at the end) iOS There many apps through which you can download these paid games for free. Also, there are many sites for the same. One of the most helpful apps is a Chinese app.It is called haimawan. If on a ios device, then you just have to click install which will redirect to settings  add a profile  and boom enjoy it as you wish . but it does not always work, it might work for few days and then the verification problem which may not cure. One more app is tutu which is a fantastic app and always work (99.9% sure .. nothing is perfect). X cross was the perfect app but is closed now an

2-D & 3-D GEOMETRY

2-D & 3-D GEOMETRY We all have some amount of geometry. We know that any line can be represented on the Cartesian plane. Any figure can be drawn on it. But can we represent a 3-d object on it. Yes we can. A Cartesian plane has 2 axis. While representing in 3-D we need to add a third axis. This axis does not come in between the axis or in the same plane. It appears to be coming out of the paper as we cannot represent a 3-d object on a 2-d surface. This new z-axis represents a line coming out of the screen. Before understanding 3-d geometry you need to imagine this axis coming out of the screen.  REMEMBER : all the three axis are perpendicular .i.e there an angle 0f 90 between them and they meet at the origin If you are unable to imagine you can take a thick book as an example. Any corner becomes it origin and the three edges as the three axis REPRESENTING 3-D GEOMETRY Like in 2-d geometry we represent the value of the different axis as (x,y) we use the same m

Animal and Plant Cells

 Cells Cells are the basic functional, biological and structural unit of life. The word cell is a Latin word meaning ‘small room’. Cells are also known as building blocks of life.  The branch of science that deals with the form, structure, and composition of a cell is known as Cytology. All organisms around us are made up of cells. Bacteria, ameba, paramecium, algae, fungi, plants and animals are made up of cells.  Cells together form tissues. And tissue together makes an organ. History Of Cell The cell was discovered by Robert Hooke in 1665. He assembled a simple microscope and observed a very thin slice of cork under his primitive microscope. The cork was obtained from the outer covering of a tree called bark. Robert Hooke observed many little-partitioned boxes or compartments in the cork slice. These boxes appeared like a honey-comb. He termed these boxes as the cell. He also noticed that one box was separated from another by a wall. What Ho
