I Left My Wallet in El Segundo

I've recently been considering enabling Google Wallet on my cell phone, but I've been apprehensive about getting further into bed with Google. So I've been using searching through Google (YEAH I KNOW SO SUE ME) to see if there's any downsides I may have overlooked.Google Wallet

Instead what I've found is many comments along these lines:

I'm so deeply thrilled that Google Wallet is a working and available option that I'm willing to pretend I'm not hindered by a lot of the service's "cons." I can turn a blind eye to the fact that Google Wallet is limited to only six specified phones, and that it will probably never work with iPhone. My guess is Apple will have to partner with (or acquire) a company to put an NFC chip in its future handsets.

Can somebody explain to me how Google adding a feature to the Android environment counts as anything near a "con"? Is there a snowball's chance in hell that a technology reporter would consider saying that Apple adding a feature to the iPhone 6 was a "drawback" because Android users (who now outnumber iPhone users) wouldn't have access to it?

Resistance is futile. Just send them your financial passwords and a sample of your DNA now.
