Anyone surprised? We don't even have smartchip CC like Europe and Asia-Pac, as it would confuse the consumer too much.
What's confusing? I'd suggest it's a chicken/egg thing. Until more vendors accept these payment services and consumers start seeing these forms of payment in action, there won't be an uptick in use. Apple can offer an "iWallet" all it wants, but the infrastructure needs to be in place to accept the payments. Right now, that's spotty at best in populated areas.
