Google Wallet (GOOG) gets a big upgrade: the mobile payments solution now supports all major credit and debit cards, and can be remotely disabled in the event a phone is lost/stolen.

Perhaps the biggest challenge is providing consumers and merchants a good reason to stop relying on card swipes, particularly given Square's popularity.
