Users can also change their default billing address, shipping address, email and phone, for online app-based purchases with Apple Pay. This information can all be automatically entered after a user authorizes with their secure fingerprint via Touch ID.

Even if your iPhone only has one phone number, name, and email address associated with you, you still must open each individual setting and choose a default.

Of course, even with Touch ID security and the fact that credit cards are listed by only their last four digits, adding all of this is a great deal of personal information to have stored in Passbook. Because of this, Apple has also added a new security feature specific to iCloud.

If your monthly to-do list
includes dedicating a chunk of change to your credit card balance – or multiple
balances – you’re not alone. Approximately
4 in 10 Americans carry revolving debt on their credit cards, according to a 2012
survey by the National Foundation for Credit Card Counseling and the Network
Branded Prepaid Card Association. And although the average debt varies by
source, credit reporting agency TransUnion puts the sum at $4,878, not
including zero-balance cards and retail credit cards.

There
are only so many ways to pay off a credit card if you have a significant amount
of debt and an insignificant amount of money....

Soldiers and Army civilians have been given the green light to pay moving expenses with government-issued credit cards.

The July 25 policy change — which brings the Army into line with the Air Force, a Navy pilot program and changes that the Marine Corps is preparing to implement — makes moving easier for personnel traveling to new duty stations since they don’t have to rack up charges on personal credit cards or apply for advance travel pay, according to a Department of Defense news release.

Ultimately, we want to extend this initiative to all federal civilians and uniformed members, said Harvey Johnson, the director of the Defense Travel Management Office,...

More than 60,000 Kansas City residents were unemployed in August 2014, a number which is likely to increase due to the recent workforce reduction plan announced at Sprint Corp., leaving some community members facing life and career transitions. Many employees have seen their companies face the possibility of layoffs over the past several years, and for those whose jobs are eliminated, the parting offer of severance pay may help ease the transition.

What is Severance Pay?

Typically, severance pay is a form of compensation to employees who have been laid off or had their position eliminated, though it may also include payment to employees who leave the company for other reasons....

An American friend has recently taught me a new word, vetocracy, to describe the state of US politics. Well, how ironic! We have that in Hong Kong already even though we dont have full democracy.

The term, my friend says, refers to how the two main political parties in the United States are so polarised along ideological lines and under the influence of powerful interest groups that they exercise a veto over any policy they dislike. The much admired separation of powers has led to gridlock on the most pressing issues for Americans.

We have our own version of vetocracy, thanks to the pan-democrats avowed campaign of non-cooperation. It started yesterday with a request to fund...
