PayPal talks up its terrible payment service: ‘At least we’re not iCloud’

PayPal definitely does not run iCloud. It did not, through a confusing backup process and potentially weak security system, make it easier for hackers to collect and leak hundreds of nude pictures of female celebrities, which were then widely disseminated on 4chan and Reddit. It would like New York Times and San Francisco Chronicle readers to know that it knows we want our money safer than our selfies, and therefore allows us to securely buy anything with just one touch, unlike the not-yet-launched Apple Pay, whose security practices remain untested. Apple notably left PayPal off its list of preferred payment providers, and PayPal is frankly late to the game in discussing how much you should trust the new payment system.
