“I don’t know that [it] will succeed and I don’t care. As long as Visa suffers.” —Attributed to former Walmart CEO Lee Scott.

From CurrentC’s home page:

    Apple should create a credit union for employees and customers. Credit unions have federal deposit insurance, and are subject to far less regulation than banks. Then it should use the credit union to launch a credit card, make loans to iDevice (and AppleCar?) buyers, facilitate person-to-person payments, etc.
