And don't miss Sarah Halzack on retail's surprising tech edge: "So how are big retailers managing to give these tech titans a run for their money? In fact, it has little to do with the technology itself, and everything to do with how it's couched for shoppers. Walmart Pay is part of an app customers can use to do things like hunt for deals on Christmas gifts. Starbucks's app can save you time by letting you skip the line to retrieve your drink. In contrast, the value proposition of a payments-only app is less clear to customers."
