Apple launches credit card, gaming service

Made from laser-etched titanium, Apple's new credit card appears to use the company's San Francisco typeface, not Silian Rail.

The Verge:

Daily cash back of 2% on purchases with external vendors; and 3% cash back on purchases from Apple ... APR rates start at 13.24 percent, up to 24.24 percent.

Also announced today was Apple Arcade, the company's new game service. The name's perfectly sweet; it's great that games are getting a place of their own outside the App Store, which is a terrible place to find them. Hopefully the payment incentives will change too to keep it out of the attention casino. All the games, at least at launch, are exclusive, with Apple reportedly investing directly (!) in development costs.
