News from the Weekend [So Far]

•Square Credit Card Readers are now available for purchase at the Apple Store. But one might ask “Isn’t the square credit card reader available for free from the app?” The answer is yes, and it still is. When you buy the Square’s credit card reader at the Apple Store for $10, Square will reimburse you $10 when you sign up for the app. This is a fantastic move for the folks at Square, gets them more publicity. For more information about Square’s fantastic service, please visit https://squareup.com

•DirecTV is planning on creating an iPhone / iPad application for streaming all of their channels to your portable device. But, it looks like their running into some trouble with content creators and the streaming, just like other streaming applications like Time Warner’s and Comcast’s. I’m super-excited about this app hitting the app store, because I’m a DTV subscriber. Although, I could just get a Slingbox.

•Would you be willing to pay a monthly subscription to use a Chrome notebook? Looks like Google is getting greedy, and could be asking for a monthly fee to use the Chrome Notebook. This could be a good thing if Google strikes a deal with Verizon Wireless to make sure that the notebook has 3G capabilities all the time instead of just Wi-Fi.

•Looks like TenOneDesign is licensing out their Autograph input application to developers. They’re giving developers the opportunity to capture signatures within their own application using TenOneDesign’s system. I’m sure lots of devs are excited about this one.
