Google Wallet v.s PayPal

Google Wallet v.s PayPal

Google Wallet v.s PayPal

A few days ago, Google introduced the new mobile payment system with Google Wallet. For those who are not familiar, Google Wallet is a mobile app that stores your credit cards, offers, loyalty and gift cards, and you can pay with it using your phone and Near Field Communication s(NFC). This is a great deal for Google, and a lot of big companies like Mater Card, Citi, Sprint and First Data have invested in this open platform software. It is a great way of encouraging discounts, promotions and loyalty rewards. Customers are very exited about this new feature, but apparently the one who is the most upset is PayPal. Why? Well, apparently, PayPal and Google were negotiating about this, so that the users could pay the Android Market via PayPal. And now, with this new announcement the whole deal is off the table. PayPal are suing Google Wallet`s project leader for unveiling confidential information to Google about the development of the NFC mobile payment system. If this goes on, Google Wallet`s first transaction may be to PayPal:)

Evernote Extension for Google Chrome

Don`t you hate it when you see all the open tabs on your PC, especially in Chrome? Well, there is finally a solution, the Evernote extension for Google Chrome. It is a great alternative for bookmarks. Once installed, Evernote will store the content you like in a free online account. There are two ways for saving the content you like. One way is by selecting the content and then just click on the green elephant icon placed on the address bar. The other way is right-click on the selected content, and select the Evernote`s file saving option from the context menu. You can also save full page, URL, or an article. Other options available in this extension is the Simultaneous Search and Browsing the Evernote account. It is a cool feature, that remembers everything that you ever clipped, just like the elephants remember stuff :). The best thing about it, is that you can access your notes anytime and anywhere.

HP Probook 4520s Review


I know it kinda passed a while since this model is out, and there is a HP Probook 4530s already out there, but I had this charismatic little thing in silver or champagne color as they like to call it. I must say that this color really gives it a more open look and makes  it even suitable for girls too, serious ones though. Equipped with the new Intel Core I3 processor, an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6370, 4GB DDR3 ram, 640GB Hard Drive, Intel HM57 Express Chipset, 15.6 LED Backlit HD display with lots of ports like HDMI, eSATA, USB 2.0 (unfortunately), VGA.

Facebook Allows Tagging Pages in Photos

Taging Pages on Photos

Taging Pages on Photos

Starting May 11th, users will be able to tag pages into their photos. This new feature will allow growth of the channel for Pages. Facebook is allowing only Pages categorized as “Brands and Products” or “People” to be tagged(this option will be expanded in near future). Users can tag any Page, whether they are fun of that Page or not. Tagged photos will appear in the Photos tab of that Page, and Page admins can remove photos from the tab in Edit Page> Posting Options and unchecking “Users can add photos”. When tagged, that Page will be exposed to the other “viewers” , so this way, that particular Page can gain new fans. Of course, if your photos are visible to everyone, everyone will be able to see the tagged Page, but if your photos are set to the option “only friends”, then only your friends will be able to see the photo of you, drinking juice with Roger Federer:). Since uploading pictures is one of the most utilized feature on Facebook, tagging of the Pages is a great opportunity for brands to make a wider online presence on the Social Network, which will of course result in free advertising. So, go ahead, abuse the privilege, my dear Facebook addicts:))
