Geek Beat: iPad Air, Apple Pay and Google Nexus

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Geeks are back and they have the latest news on what's buzzing in the tech world.

The iPad Air 2 practically floated onto shelves thanks to it impossibly sleeker design. The tablet which is thinner than a pencil has a higher resolution screen than its predecessor and also boasts a higher quality camera.

Apple Pay was released on Monday but many people are skeptical of how secure the app really is. Apple Pay persuades users to leave their wallet and credit cards at home as they can swipe their phone which holds all their credit card information over a special transaction terminal. Their are only 200,000 stores and retailers which carry these terminals so far.

Google's Nexus 6 and 9 challenge Apples new larger phones and tablets. Unlike Apple, Google only sells their products online so it is more difficult to give these products a live test run.
