Smart testing Mobile Credit Card Reader

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: October 1, 2012

During Smart's sale event last week-end, the company tested a new mobile credit card reader. This allows merchants to allow credit card payments via a smartphone. The smartphone (the photo shows an Android handset from HTC) serves as a modem for the card reader. The system makes it more affordable for merchants to charge customers using MasterCard. The solution looks like it's still in testing phase so we're not sure when it will become available for merchants to use.

As for us, we’re using NetVibes on…

Google Reader takes the lead

Relevance: 61%      Posted on: February 20, 2007

My recent post on PTB talks about the recent introduction of Google Reader subscriber stats via Feedburner. Initial survey on several blogs I run showed Google Reader taking the top spot. Is it the same with your feeds? Btw, I don't wanna sound superstitious but I didn't like the number out of my Feedburner chicklet today:

Google Reader Recommends

Relevance: 59%      Posted on: December 3, 2007

One new feature that Google Reader has just rolled out is the Top Recommendations, an automated feed recommendation feature. Google reader will look into your feeds and list other blog feeds that you may be also interested in. They don't say they do this, and I'm not a regular Google Reader user, but I have some ideas. First, since Google has full information about your feed reading habits, it may have factored in keyword topic densities, blog titles/descriptions, and inbound/outbound and link popularity and compare that to all feeds using that filter. The catch, however, is that the recommendations will…

Switched to Omea Reader

Relevance: 57%      Posted on: December 4, 2005

My FeedDemon Trial license expired. Being unable to get a fresh license and still undecided if I should shell out the $29.95 for the full version, I went around searching for a potential replacement. I have hundreds of RSS subscriptions with my FeedDemon and I don't want to loose them altogether if I switched. Then I found Omea Reader thru a blog entry of Nick Bradbury about FeedDemon cracks. Installed the reader just to check it if it compares fairly with FeedDemon. Actually, I was more impressed and on top of that, the Omea Reader is free. I like freebies.…

Relevance: 54%      Posted on: January 17, 2012

Jollibee (and other sister companies) is riding into the NFC craze (near-field communication) with the introduction of an NFC-powered privilege card called HappyPlus. The HappyPlus Card is basically a reloadable debit card powered by an NFC chip. To get a better understanding on how it works, here's a YouTube video of their upcoming commercial. The reloadable card works with Jollibee, Chowking, Greenwich, Red Ribbon and Mang Inasal. Each card costs Php100 and you load it with any amount in any of fastfood branches mentioned. Will this fly? Not sure if the market of Jollibee is this tech-savvy. What do you…

Feedburner now counts Rojo & Google Reader

Relevance: 54%      Posted on: February 17, 2007

In the last 3 or 4 days, I've seen a bit of a steep increase in my total Feedburner subscriptions (actually, 60+ in the last 4 days). I wasn't sure where'd the new subscribers were coming from but was surprised today to find out that Feedburner is now able to count Google Reader subscribers. However, when I checked my Feedburner account, it was Rojo that was showing more than 1 subscribers and not from Google Feedfetcher. Feedfetcher is how Google grabs RSS or Atom feeds when users subscribe to them in Google Reader or the Google Personalized Homepage. Subscriber counts…

Relevance: 51%      Posted on: November 20, 2007

Online retail giant Amazon recently announced a new electronic handheld device called Kindle. Is it time to put down all the paperbacks and hardcovers for an e-Reader? The e-book reader allows you to store up to 200 books and has a little more room for periodicals, magazines and even 300 blogs. All this you can get or download anywhere using a free high-speed cellular wireless network from Sprint (EVDO, Amazon Whispernet). Looking to be a better competitor to the Sony Reader Digital Book (PRS-505). The catch? While access to the network is free, you'll have to pay monthly subscriptions rates…
