Apple Pay has only been around since October, but according to a new report from ITG, the service has already grabbed 1 percent of the total digital payment dollars spent in the U.S. in November. If the trend continues, the report suggests, Apple has already won itself a more loyal mobile payment audience than some rival services like PayPal. That's an impressive gain for so short a period, especially since ITG notes that Google Wallet has only managed to reach 4 percent since its release in 2011.

For specifics, 60 percent of Apple Pay users used the service multiple times throughout November compared to the mere 20 percent of PayPal users who used the service more than once per month. (ITG isn't clear, but the vast majority of other digital payments seem to come from PayPal.) Apple Pay adopters often used it at the same location, too, as 66 percent of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners used the service again after using it on the first visit.

And now we venture into stereotype territory. ITG reported that Whole Foods saw the most Apple Pay transactions, to the point that 1/5 of all Apple Pay purchases were made at the popular market. Walgreens came in second, accounting for 19 percent of all Apple Pay transactions. The numbers differ significantly in terms of Apple dollars spent, however, with Whole Foods bringing in a staggering 28 percent and Walgreens reaching only 12 percent.

Apple Pay is available at more than 200,000 retail locations throughout the United States. The Cupertino company itself hasn't revealed much information about the service's success, but Apple CEO Tim Cook said back in October that more than one million credit and debit cards were activated on the service during its first 72 hours.

The devastating cyber attack on Sony Pictures continues to cause problems for the company, and it recently made headlines for leading to the company's decision to pull the film The Interview. The attack affected all computers at the company — all, that is, except those made by Apple.

According to report from TechCrunch, the attacks have left most of the studio "stuck in 1992." Many meetings, for instance, now take place face-to-face rather than via e-mail and text messages.

"We had barely working email and no voicemail so people talked to each other. Some people had to send faxes. They were dragging old printers out of storage to cut checks," said one source who spoke with Techcrunch. "It was crazy."

Sony Pictures' computers are apparently off-limits until the company figures out the source of the attack, but exceptions have been given to some users of Mac and iOS devices.

"People using Macs were fine," the source says, while adding that "a couple of people had their [non-Mac] computers removed." She added that most work at the company is currently being done on iPads and iPhones.

The source didn't specify why Macs received such preferential treatment, but it's likely owing to Mac OS X's much greater reputation for security compared to Windows.
