60秒科学:Apple Expected to Set Its Sights on Wearables, Mobile Payments

听力内容:

60秒科学节目(SSS)是科学美国人网站的一套广播栏目,英文名称:Scientific American – 60 Second Science,节目内容以科学报道为主,节目仅一分钟的时间,主要对当今的科学技术新发展作以简明、通俗的介绍,对于科学的发展如何影响人们的生活环境、健康状况及科学技术,提供了大量简明易懂的阐释。

Apple’s latest product download is almost here, and the Web is as usual rampant with rumor. Some of the more interesting speculation concerns the launch of a wearable device—the mythical iWatch, maybe?—and a new iPhone that can be used as a mobile wallet.

Ironically, Apple’s biggest mobile gadget competitors—that would be anyone using Google Android—already sell a variety of smartwatches and include near-field communication chips that can pass payment data wirelessly over short distances at retailers.

Still, Apple is the market maker. That means, if it debuts a smart wearable September 9, you can expect to see a whole lot of people rocking a new Apple accessory in a few months. The company’s ability to spur mobile payments is even more significant because it could completely change how most people pay for things, going well beyond anything its Passbook app is capable of.

Remember, Apple wasn’t the first to come out with an Internet-enabled phone or an mp3 player. They were the ones that made smartphones a must-have gadget and digital music a phenomenon.
