0

Posted on 28th Nov 2012 by in Telecom

With only one day remaining of our inaugural contactless challenge, our two competitors have been desperately searching for new ways to boost their total points – even if they are more than 700 miles apart. As revealed yesterday, Ewan has taken his contactless challenge international in Barcelona, while Jon continues in London. However, Ewan failed […]

Contactless Challenge Day 8: Integrating the old and the new

Posted on 27th Nov 2012 by in Telecom

On the eighth day of the contactless challenge, the scores suggest that if you venture to London with an NFC-capable device, there are a variety of goods and services you will be able to pay for via contactless, if only at a selection of outlets. With Ewan now in Barcelona, will the GSMA’s favorite mobile […]

The contactless challenge is now entering its final few days, with Ewan MacLeod struggling to find companies willing and capable to accept contactless mobile payments. Ploughing on with continued tenacity, however, he has managed to clock up potentially vital points in his attempt to wrestle the lead back off Jon Choo. A trip to the […]

Contactless Challenge Day 6 – drinks and drive-thru

Posted on 25th Nov 2012 by in Telecom

Our challengers aren’t being deterred in their quest to win #GemaltoNFC – not by a lack of NFC terminals outside London or the fact it’s their weekend. Jon Choo is still heading up the scoreboard with 179 points to Ewan MacLeod’s 126. Thanks to a visit to the cobblers (Timpson) but also managing to buy […]

Posted on 24th Nov 2012 by in Telecom

We are now half way through the challenge. It is set to run until Wednesday at midnight when the final scores shall be counted and the winner of #GemaltoNFC announced. But that’s still some way off, and there are plenty more contactless challenges that our NFC battlers can complete. To summarize recent events, Ewan MacLeod […]

Contactless Challenge Day 4 – What we’ve learnt so far

Posted on 23rd Nov 2012 by in Telecom

Almost halfway through our contactless challenge with Ewan and Jon, and it’s fair to say it’s been a steep learning curve for all of us. While there have been plenty of successes, it’s clear that NFC and contactless technology is not quite mainstream (it wouldn’t be a challenge if it was!), and the UK has […]

Contactless Challenge Day 3: McDonald’s to the rescue

Posted on 22nd Nov 2012 by in Telecom

Jon Choo went into Day 3 of our Contactless Challenge with a twenty-five point lead following a hugely successful second day. However, a previously despondent Ewan MacLeod resolved to pick himself up and get back on the NFC payment wagon with a vengeance. Embracing (or should that be enduring) the London rain, Ewan headed out […]

Posted on 21st Nov 2012 by in Telecom

Our Contactless Challenge continues apace thanks to our determined NFC challengers Ewan and Jon. At the end of the first day they were matching each other, point for point, but Jon has now taken the lead with 101 points to Ewan’s 76. Despite Ewan managing to purchase some no doubt unhealthy treats (as the Krispy […]

Posted on 20th Nov 2012 by in Telecom

We are just one day into our Contactless Challenge and the competition is already in full swing. At 5pm on Day One, Ewan and Jon were neck and neck on points, but with a full nine days of competition remaining there’s still everything for our two cashless crusaders to play for. After some initial frustration […]

The Technology behind the Contactless Challenge

Posted on 16th Nov 2012 by in Telecom

If you read my recent blog post about our forthcoming Contactless Challenge, you may wish to know more about the technology behind the payments that Ewan MacLeod and Jon Choo will be making in and around London in the coming weeks. I’ll admit, inspired by the latest James Bond film, I may have been a […]
