No. You shouldn't trust Google for a damn thing.

But their security is top notch. /s
I had to cancel a debit card a couple months ago (nothing to do w/google).
Recently I wanted to purchase a google play app to kill the ads on it and the payment failed because of the previous cancelled card. I entered the new card nfo but now google says i am persona non grata and wants a picture of my id. fook that, they can keep their $3 app.

On a flip note. I put the wrong delivery address on my $300 ipad purchase and the billing went through .w/out a hitch.
I have never used that address before, it is not affiliated with my debit card and the address is not a real address.
It triggered nothing and Staples processed my order asap.
On delivery day I was tracking it (UPS) and it showed "Out for Delivery" and then at 1:30PM it switched to "Incorrect Address".

$3 purchase, show id. $300 dollar purchase with non-existent address, ship it.

argh ack pfft

I am less disgusted with Staple's CC address checking than I am with the fact that you ordered an Apple device.

So you paid $301 to play The Room? (Dreyerdaughter loves that series, btw)

Staples has now sent me a replacement iPad for the iPad I received. Arrival December 9.
I called Staples and told them to stop it.. They cancelled the unneeded replacement but UPS has it and I'll probably get it. Now do I return it or sell it for $200.

If it would screw Apple over I'd consider keeping/selling it (although I'd never have ordered it to begin with). But it will probably burn Staples not Apple so....

For you it's only $199 plus $25 s&h.

I think the law is on my side but I'd just as soon return it or refuse it if I catch my UPS driver.

The guy that owns one of the coffee shops I frequent showed me how the new iPad OS allows the iPad to act as a second wireless screen for his MacBook. Pretty cool.
He's an app developer so extra screen space comes in handy.

It's the equivalent of buying the $1000 dollar Steam VR kit and getting Alex for free , only a worse deal because nothing is free in Apple land. Now I am a true Apple sheeple and can blend in at any Starbucks.

Talk about a hard adjustment coming from androidville.
I am impressed with how snappy it is considering the A10 chip was first used in an iPhone about 18 iterations ago. There's something to be said about designing your OS to run on your chip and vice-a-versa.
