[Rumor] Amazon May Be Gearing Up to Take On PayPal with New Payments Strategy

Jun 10, 2014 - 10:37 AM - by dgstorm

It looks like PayPal might have some stiff competition in the electronic payment market very soon. According to the latest rumint, Amazon is developing a new payments strategy that is poised to compete directly with PayPal. According to the report, Amazon is planning to introduce a new subscription-based payment system.

Just like PayPal, Amazon will collect a small fee for each transaction, but they plan to allow users to pay bills through this subscription system using their stored credit card information on Amazon's servers. Amazon basically wants to become the middleman, by offering the ability to pay bills and process transactions for both small and large companies.

Here's a quote with a few more details,

Amazon has been testing its payment service with a few startups, including mobile phone firm Ting. The main focus for the effort is subscription-based payment systems, though it could technically be applied to anything else. Like PayPal, Amazon collects a fee for each transaction.

In order for the payment system to get up and running, Amazon needs to partner with companies that will accept such transactions. It's not clear how many firms have so far signed on to the service.

Regardless, services like PayPal and Amazon's deliver some added security in an increasingly insecure world. By providing PayPal and Amazon payment buttons, otherwise unknown merchants can provide some security to customers who wouldn't want to share their credit cards with unknown firms.
Supposedly, Amazon plans to announce this new service as soon as next Monday. We will keep an eye out for anything official.

Thanks to our tipsters who sent this one in!

Amazon May Launch Their 3D Smartphone June 18th; Uses 'Okao Vision' for 3D effects

Jun 06, 2014 - 9:57 AM - by dgstorm

According to industry intel, Amazon may be poised to launch their 3D Android-based smartphone as soon as June 18th. This rumor has a solid basis to back it up as well. Amazon themselves just released a teaser trailer in which users are introduced to the device. We don't get to see what they are looking at, but their surprised and impressed reactions suggest we might just be surprised by how cool Amazon's concept really turns out to be. In fact, the folks in the video even suggest that the features aren't just for show, but might actually be extra useful as well.

Luckily, further insider info suggests this new "wow" tech comes form Omron's Okao Vision face-sensing system. Here's a quote describing it,

The Amazon team reportedly customized the Japanese company's creation so that it can be used to show 3D effects on an ordinary LCD screen without special glasses. Instead of relying on accessories, the software depends on four front cameras embedded on the device's corners to track the user's face, as well as on the phone's accelerometer and gyroscope. For instance, if you tilt your face to one side, the interface shows you a hidden panel you wouldn't see if you look at the screen from another angle.

Besides being able to track faces, Okao Vision (or "Face Vision" in Japanese) can also recognize facial features and determine the user's gender and ethnicity, though we've yet to find out whether Amazon has also integrated those features.~ Engadget
It certainly appears that Amazon might be the Dark Horse of 2014 if they can really pull off something impressive and useful. We are definitely intrigued and will be watching out for any further hints of the June 18th release date.

May 05, 2014 - 11:45 AM - by dgstorm

Mother's Day is almost upon us. It's one simple day of the year when we get a chance to celebrate and/or give thanks for one of the most important people in our lives. She gave birth to us, clothed us, fed us, wiped our faces and our butts, worried when we were sick, showered us with love and affection and much much more. It's an easy thing to do to come up with a card and/or a gift for her compared to all of that.

To that end, we thought it would be handy to share a few links to online retailers to make it super-easy for our members to share their appreciation for their Mom. Here are several links to retailers with gift offers and a few generous discounts to get you started:
