Apple has taken control of the mobeewave.com domain name.
A new MacRumors report explains that Apple has taken control of the mobeewave.com domain a year after it bought the company. The move means that the mobeewave.com webpage now directs to Apple’s servers, although the website doesn’t load and will likely stay that way unless Apple redirects it to a new feature or product page in the future.
The move is just another step along the way of Apple’s assimilation of MobeeWave. The payments company had previously demonstrated the ability for a phone to receive a payment via a card just by touching the two together.
If the technology is implemented in Apple’s iPhone, it may enable transactions between people without the need for a chip reader or other payment mechanism. However, such a feature could mean trouble for third-party payment systems like Square, which relies on hardware sales of payment terminals.
Full contact information on the domain transfer is redacted for privacy, but the record’s domain information lists Apple’s nameservers. The domain is no longer active, although at some point in the future Apple may choose to redirect it to either a related product page or support pages for an upcoming product.
