You Can Now Send Money Via Gmail

You Can Now Send Money Via Gmail | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
Google announced Wednesday that users will now be able to send money via Gmail.
Ken Morrison's insight:

Wow. Google is taking Wallet to the next level.  It will now be connected to Gmail.  Will this hurt PayPal?  Perhaps.  Will it influence impulse decisions?  Probably.  Will it help the Nigerian Prince's family who keeps sending me money requests?  Absolutely not :).

Just one more way the NWO is getting irrevocably embedded in our lives.  I don't trust Google.  Use'em.....yeah.   Trust'em.... no.

Google's getting a little creepy. I think I'll stick with PayPal.

» Cash Advanced: Google Wallet Is Tomorrow’s Billfold | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Google's Wallet service allows you to store digital versions of your credit cards on your smartphone and pay for purchases using only your handset.
In Korea, I see people paying for subway rides with their phone every day and getting discount at the local stores.  So much better than punch cards!

Bitcoin wallet service Instawallet hacked, shuts down 'indefinitely'

Bitcoin wallet service Instawallet hacked, shuts down 'indefinitely' | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
Bitcoins are a hot commodity now, but are your Bitcoins actually safe? The Bitcoin wallet company Instawallet has suspended its service "indefinitely" after being hacked.
Ken Morrison's insight:

Many people (including me) like the idea of digital currency that is not tied to a single government.  Bitcoin has hit a severe roadblock with this hacking.
