iPhone Users Miss Out On Free Beer

Users of Android and BlackBerry Near Field Communication (NFC) enabled devices can get a free pint of Guinness in twenty pubs across the UK from now until the 31st August. All you have to do is make sure your NFC is turned on and then tap the harp logo on the pub’s Guinness beer dispenser (image below), then hit enter and you may win a complimentary pint (one per person per day). Guinness’s Terms and Conditions specifically say “Unfortunately this offer is not open to iPhone users” which is of course Apple’s fault for not incorporating NFC technology in the last iteration of iPhones. Interestingly the free pint offer is available until just before the launch date for the iPhone 5S which is rumored to have NFC functionality. Maybe Guinness know something we don’t 🙂
