PayPal is broadening its digital wallet service to allow consumers to carry out a range of complex financial transactions as it seeks to stamp its authority on the increasingly competitive market. Speaking at the South by Southwest conference in Texas, VP Sam Shrauger claims that the wallet will "let consumers do things with their money that have never been possible before", such as taking an item home to trial before paying for it - essentially allowing them to change their minds before buying. The changes see PayPal offering a huge, if complex, degree of flexibility, with the firm stating that it is "imagining the future of money". Along with delayed payments, consumers can pay for items in instalments or even pay for items using different "sources of value" beyond credit cards such as mixing gift cards, airline miles and loyalty points.

As mobile commerce continues to grow at a phenomenal rate – thanks it part to public wifi access – new research from web hosting experts UK2 and YouGov has revealed that more than half of the UK’s public wifi users are potentially putting confidential data at risk by connecting mobile devices to unsecured networks.
According to the survey, over half of all UK adults who ever use public wifi (56%) do not check or only “rarely” check whether a public wifi network is encrypted before use. Public wifi networks in places such as coffee shops, pubs, airports or hotels, are often unsecured connections, which can expose personal data and leave devices open to online threats such as malware, spyware and cyber-snooping.
