Better mobile payment is just around the corner, YouTube launches a TV service, and PebblePost sends postcards with online-generated advertising. Here’s the week’s top stories!
There are many indications that we are closer to a user-friendly system for mobile payments in shops. MobilePay offers mobile payments in store today, but you need to open an app to pay. It takes three times longer than using a card. Do customers really want to waste their time on inefficient mobile payment methods?
But there is hope: Amazon lets us escape from active identification. Soon we will be able to shop without any time spent on payment methods at all.
