It does in the sense that the target demographic wants to be ostentatious over the look of a credit card

Maybe it was just me, but there was a period in the mid 2000s where everything was made out of duct tape. I have a duct tape wallet around here somewhere


RonenSalathe

I remember that. Let that come back again


Run_for_my_life

You're ringing a bell! I remember prom outfits being made out of duct tape.


ImACraftyHooker

The main reason you see these is because duck brand duct tape actually runs a scholarship contest with a prize of $10k for a dress and $10k for a tux. I was going to enter it because I wanted to go to school for fashion (that never happened) and thought it would look great on college applications. Sadly I'm Canadian and didn't qualify. https://www.duckbrand.com/stuck-at-prom/official-rules

Is it neon yellow? PLEASE tell me it's NEON YELLOW?!?

Just navy blue, sorry. But I do have a very plastic lenticular Transformers wallet from about that time period. Even has an integrated coin purse.

yrdsl

I've worn those, they're useful for if you're doing something in hot/humid climates that requires professional attire. They breathe better and get less sweaty than wool or cotton.

I don't know about microfiber pants but I have Alcantara underwear.

Apple: Here, try our extremely convenient credit card that will definitely make your life easier. Me: Cool, let me put it in my wallet. Apple: Nope, don't do that. Me: ...Okay...Guess I'll just put it in my pocket. Apple: No you won't. Me: ... Apple: Our products are magical.

You don't need new pants. You just need a wallet adapter.

I honestly think microfiber pants would feel great, although I can't imagine how much that would really cost.

I have fancy microfiber underwear and I'm honestly not a huge fan. Modal is where its at, but that's even more expensive


darkvad0r

I have a pair of Uniqlo jeans lined with microfiber for thermal insulation and they're really annoying because the microfiber constantly pulls on my leg hairs

just get silk pants.... microfiber isn't right. I don't think they breathe well enough to be comfortable attire.

It's like Tom Haverford's business cards on parks and rec. Black ink, black background, because black is the coolest color. Also. It is a very strong magnet, DO NOT put it in your wallet, it WILL destroy your credit cards!

Don’t forget, you can’t let it touch another card, either.

Yes, it’s Apple Card! The financial sensation that’s sweeping the nation! Only $14.95 at participating stores! Get one today! Warning: Pregnant women, the elderly, and children under 10 should avoid prolonged exposure to Apple Card. Caution: Apple Card may suddenly accelerate to dangerous speeds. Apple Card contains a liquid core, which, if exposed due to rupture, should not be touched, inhaled, or looked at. Do not use Apple Card on concrete. Discontinue use of Apple Card if any of the following occurs: - itching - vertigo - dizziness - tingling in extremities - loss of balance or coordination - slurred speech - temporary blindness - profuse sweating - or heart palpitations If Apple Card begins to smoke, get away immediately. Seek shelter and cover head. Apple Card may stick to certain types of skin. When not in use, Apple Card should be returned to its special container and kept under refrigeration. Failure to do so relieves the makers of Apple Card, Apple, and its partner company, Goldman Sachs, of any and all liability. Ingredients of Apple Card include an unknown glowing green substance which fell to Earth, presumably from outer space. Apple Card has been shipped to our troops in Saudi Arabia and is being dropped by our warplanes on Iraq. Do not taunt Apple Card. Apple Card comes with a lifetime warranty. Apple Card!

lewdite

Actually the whole point of the card is that you don’t need to carry it around, it lives on your iPhone. You can get better rewards from discover. People are stupid (or have bad credit).


[deleted]

Why even make a physical card then?


MightBeJerryWest

I guarantee there are people who signed up for this card just for the physical card. I think there are even videos out there of what it sounds like when it drops. Not exclusive to Apple though, I know there are people who sign up for other metal cards. Edit: and so people can use the card where Apple Pay isn’t accepted.


Zook024

so you can still use it somewhere where they don't accept apple pay


RustyToad

Oh, so you still need to carry it around with you then?


Ugbrog

>You can get better rewards from discover. Yeah but I still carry Visa and Mastercard. And according to the people that call me, they've combined forces into "Visa Mastercard Services".

Dude. I (used to) love Apple products. So simple. They just work. Now Mojave on an almost brand new 5k iMac with shit tons of RAM I have crashes on my mail app all the time, all kinds of warnings. All kinds of trying to get me to log in to iCloud messages, not to mention the same on my iPhone plus a bunch of BS with adapters because some how there is a problem with the headphone jack and I can't use my GPS (which drains my battery) and listen to audio books at the same time because I need to charge my phone. Yes, I know there are work arounds for all this, but for the price I shouldn't have to.


KeepCalmJeepOn

Don't worry bro, we *just* so happen to have a phone case with the right material you can use for only $89.99. :) Would you like Applecare for it?

You don’t have to. It’s suggesting you don’t because it can discolor the white card.

My current debit card has the colour in the numbers worn off, the mag strip all scratched up (in Canada so no one accepts swipe any ways) and and 2 corners bent, still works fine


Hurricane_32

The chip itself is what matters. Technically it would work even if you cut it to the size of a phone nano-sim. In fact, it's (almost) exactly the same technology! Edit: I'm not talking about RFID or any of that. The point I'm only trying to make is that **the chip itself** would technically still work without all the "plastic" around it. It's obvious there would be no contactless!!

>Most likely No one thought it was her fault. Sometimes people think if something bad happens ~~it's automatically their fault though.~~ **the customer will blame them, and their boss will side with the customer because it's not worth the extra $1\/hour they are making to defend you.**

FPSXpert

Meanwhile my bank uses the crappy materials to the point you need a new card every few months or the chip will stop working.


AltimaNEO

My card doesn't even come with the numbers embossed on it anymore.


DeviousMrBlonde

And the Apple Card will too. This is a recommendation based on aesthetics. The card is not going to stop functioning because it touches denim.


skatecrimes

most of my regular credit cards look like shit after a few months being squashed and rubbed in my wallet. I'm guessing Apple wants you to keep your card looking pristine.


GrandMoffFartin

Also this happens with most white things. Happened with iPods too. I keep lens cleaning wipe packets in my pocket and they are always denim blue after a bit of time. They made this because multiple customers will complain and say they didn't warn them. This is the warning.


GoldenGonzo

I'm normally first aboard the Apple hate train. Hell, call me the conductor. That bullshit $1,000 monitor stand that wasn't included with the monitor? Hate boner for 2 weeks, SOLID. But they're not wrong in this regard. Most/all major credit card companies tell you to do this.


nan_slack

the weird thing about that it wasn't a disaster because of the price, it was a disaster because of how apple completely misread the market re: how to sell that monitor and stand. the vast vast majority of people who would pay 5k for a fancy apple monitor already have the compatible apple branded $200 mount they released for the last generation--essentially, they could have spun it as a discount ("the monitor costs $200/1000 less!"--obviously this is bullshit since they could sell it for whatever damn price they please, but they've successfully used this strategy with their phone accessories for years) but chose instead just to **emphasize** the price point of the fucking stand, so that's all anyone was talking about. nevermind that it's a piece of professional gear with a niche market at best--the overwhelming majority of apple customers will never ever use it or need it or want it. completely idiotic. shades of kaz hirai and "five hundred and ninety-nine us dollars"


switchoffswitchon

This should have more upvotes. It’s literally the same maintenance all cards suggest so they don’t get damage, it’s not “Apple trying to scam us again!!!!”


bs000

oh no, redditors are falling for sensationalist headlines again, how could this happen

Isn't the whole point of apple pay getting RID of the card?

Ferro_Giconi

jabfo43

I enjoy minimalism sometimes, but it often feels like the plague of modern design since half the time something is minimal they sacrifice loads of functionality, it is such lazy design.


ChesterDaMolester

The card isn’t gonna break because it touched leather or denim. It’s a metal card that’s functions identically to any other credit card.


Tattered_Colours

Minimalism means stripping something down to only its most necessary and functional pieces, not prioritizing a barren aesthetic to the point of removing core functionality.
