So apparently you can now (or soon) send an email to send cash? I like Square, and use it for golf students (among other things), but how is this going to be secure? Can't someone simply spoof an email from you to send themselves money?

I'll agree with him on his Touch ID opinion - mine has a success rate of about 66% or so, with the 33% including a high number of two or more failed attempts.

AmEx patented those little numbers on your credit card, and then for the good of the industry and consumer protection donated the patent to a non-profit, who promised not to enforce the patent against banks… and then proceeded to sell the patent to Intellectual Ventures who is now suing banks over it.

Having not owned the original Paperwhite, I believe that original Paperwhite owners need only upgrade if they hate the spotty lighting at the bottom of their Kindles. Otherwise, you can probably wait another revision or three.
I'll do just that. Thanks.

In case you didn't know:
When you’re in a web browser, and want to type .com, just tap and hold the . button to the right of the space bar, and you’ll see a popup menu which lets you choose from a number of top-level domains: as you can see below, I can choose from .us, .org, .edu, .net and .com.

Eric Chemi, head of research for Bloomberg Businessweek, pulls an amazing stat. iPhone sales in the last year exceed all revenue to Microsoft, Amazon, Comcast, or Google. The iPhone alone outsells Coca-Cola and McDonald's, perhaps the world's two most famous brands, combined.

Does anyone have any experience with Screens? I'd love to try it out, but at $19.99, it exposes one of the flaws with the App Store - there's no real way to demo the application.

The comments here are about 50/50. I've not had too many problems with Apple's maps, but just today in San Antonio it failed to properly identify the location of a Texas Land & Cattle. It was off by several miles. Outdated info? No - the place has been here for years.

"You don't really remember a notebook or the pens and pencils you used. But maybe you remember your [Trapper Keeper]." Harris says that the binder "wasn't a regular school product. When you got it, it was almost like a Christmas present. You were excited to have it."
I had a few and I didn't even know that the folders were called "Trappers." It makes a lot more sense now why the vinyl thing was called the "Trapper Keeper."

You are coasting down the main drag of your small town on a scooter. But in this world, scooters are not universally mocked. Scooters are the smooth, gliding chariots of the respected. It is a balmy, spring afternoon. Your favorite townspeople eagerly wave to you from the storefronts of their successful small businesses. You are magnificently happy to see them. You are content with the world. You have never heard of war, never have you seen the film Crash, not once have your gorgeous and soft ears fallen prey to the gnashing and soulless sounds of Sleigh Bells. The band. You pause your ebullient gliding at a water fountain. The pressure and temperature is ideal. From a nearby bench, Ernest Borgnine motions for you to join him. Yes, he is still alive. Also, he has baked a pie.
