Not that there’s been a lack of ways to pickup a Square bank card reader, however if you happen to discover yourself in a Verizon Wireless shop with a couple of extra bucks and the burning desire to open your very own specialty shop company (and you’re not craving coffee or a MacBook), you’re in luck. As of today, VZW stores will be providing the commerce gadget country wide for $ 9.97 a pop– a price that has a $ 10 Square credit. Ka-ching. With $ 10 billion a year in payments at last count, that pricing structure seems to be working out for the company after all.

Fortune is reporting that Gaikai is on the marketplace: the streaming game service provider has actually employed bankers and is looking for a buyer to spend “well in excess of $ 500 million,” according to the publication’s anonymous sources. We just can’t point out whether that would certainly be a fair rate for the firm or not, but it’s absolutely a service provider to see: we just recently spent an entire day at Gaikai’s Aliso Viejo HQ, and found out that the team’s ambitions go method past getting gamers to pay for a cloud-based game or twelve.
When we reached out, Gaikai wouldn’t comment on just what it defined as a rumor, but this isn’t the first time this month that the service provider’s allegedly been headed towards a sale. Earlier this month, multiple independent publications reported that …

If you want some of that Porsche Design look, without the German engineered price, then check what just pulled up on the driveway: a port of the custom theme and icons. Sadly, only BlackBerry 9900 / 9300 owners — which share much of the same hardware as the P’9981 — running BlackBerry OS7 (not 7.1) can give their handset that new car smell. This means the sharp lines and luxurious brushed finish that made the P’9981 catch our eye in the first place will remain firmly in those pockets deep enough to afford it. Tap the source link if you still want to add the racing stripes to your current saloon.

Yes, Microsoft’s Kinect has already been cracked, as you’ll see on video after the break — the motion-sensing depth camera now nods its head on command and displays real-time accelerometer data on one lucky hacker’s PC. We tracked down the son-of-a-gun who did it — as it happens, the same NUI Group member who hacked the PlayStation Eye in 2008 — and found to our disappointment that he doesn’t necessarily intend to unleash his new exploit on the world. The $ 2,000 prize Adafruit is presently offering for open-source Kinect drivers isn’t his aim, though he does have big personal plans for the device, as he hopes to integrate it into his company’s commercial visualization suite CL Studio Live. It seems that work is progressing fast, as he’s already gotten video streams from both cameras to output to his computer, and he plans to upload a far more convincing video soon. Here’s hoping he has a change of heart about sharing his rapid accomplishments.

After all, who but the very best could have foisted such transparent BS as a fix to a blatant design flaw?
Congratulations to Steve and Jony. In all honestly, these guys really are incredibly smart and good at their jobs, but their being honored at this moment of all moments is just a little rich.

When iPads are scarce in their home country, you better believe they’re going to command a premium out there in non-America-land. Jobs today said they’re making iPads as fast as they can make them, but supply isn’t near great enough to start pushing it to the rest of the world just yet. Consider yourselves lucky, fellow Yanks — you could be spending nearly a grand (or, in one silly Briton’s case, far more than that) for the entry-level model.
The ironic part is, of course, that these things are costing a mint in China, where they are made.
This interesting CNN story follows the exploits of a group of Hong Kong “entrepreneurs” who flew to the US, bought up all the iPads they could (about 200), and flew back to sell them on the streets of that great city. Sure, why not, as long as the TSA says it’s cool? They sell them for upwards of $800 each, making for quite a profit. And some people were buying them for re-resale in China, where, owing to the fact that these things had to be smuggled twice, they go for even more. It’s not exactly illegal, but somehow I doubt Apple would approve. Fortunately, I don’t care whether they approve or not, and neither do the Hong Kongians. Kongfolk?
If I can stand being around all my “friends” with iPads for long enough, I plan to buy one off Craigslist when the new version comes out. After all, at that point it’ll have a ton more stuff available and with luck I can get one that was treated gently.
