I think you'll find when EV's are common place the government will bring in toll roads everywhere!

But ... but iOS 9 could BLOCK my Ad-Block, dev squeals

Just use a VPN with built in ad blocking.... takes a couple of hours to setup on a VPS from scratch.

Keen to get CRITICAL PAYMENT systems up QUICKLY after HACK?

@TheWeddingPhotographer Totally agree! We can't wait around for days of forensics to be completed while our business takes no payments.

The worst ISP teaming up with the worst mobile phone company..... a match made in heaven!

I wouldn't be worrying if I was BT.
