Apple Pay continuesÂ its rollout across the US withÂ a stop in Las Vegas. The Cosmopolitan resortÂ has announced that Apple Pay will be accepted at the hotels’ front desk, restaurants and barsÂ by early June. Room service can also be streamlined using Apple Pay, as the concierge service will also accept Apple Pay as a payment method. This means that you can pay with your iPhone or even your Apple Watch.
It’s unclear if you will be able to gamble directly with Apple Pay â€” mostÂ casinos limit chips purchasing to cash only transactions. Or ifÂ credit cards are accepted, the payments are marked as cash advances so there are noÂ ways to turnÂ quick money.Â It is not known if the establishmentÂ can or will support this kind of transaction through Apple Pay.
In a statement, TheÂ Cosmopolitan marketing officer said:
â€śAs always, we are thrilled to lead the market with a new component to a Las Vegas experience that makes everything a bit faster and a great deal easierâ€ť.
Apple’s market power has pushed Apple Pay quickly across America, with thousands of accepting merchants. Over 200 banks and credit unions now support Apple Pay.Â There is still no news about an international Apple Pay rollout, however. Cook said it wants to get Apple Pay internationally by the end of the year.

There's one problem with many car and bike sharing programs: By the time you've decided where to go, you're already locked into a transportation mode. You're either waiting for a cab to pick you up, making your way to a kiosk of bikes, or unlocking a nearby ZipCar. What if you could tell an app what you needed to do and let the app provide you with the best method to get there?

Las Vegas gets 90 percent of its water from Lake Mead, the lake created by the Hoover Dam about 45 miles away. It's also a lake that's only half fullâ€”with water levels that are decreasing every year. Now the city must dig a massive tunnel that will dip deeper into the lake to ensure Las Vegas's water supply doesn't run out.
