Square Does Mobile Payments and Video Right Too

Square, the new iPhone / iPad / Android mobile payment system to accept credit cards whenever and wherever you want, has gotten a lot of buzz. It’s simple, it’s cool, it’s useful.

But I’m most excited about their official video. This is one of the best (it would be the best, but I have to give the top spot to our own video) This is a video done right. It is clean. It is clear. It is beautifully done. Take a look and tell us what you think about the video or service.

Hiring the Internet goes Mobile

iphone_screenshotSome of our particularly sharp-eyed readers may have noticed that we’ve just upgraded our blog.  After years of being hosted as part of the WordPress.com community of blogs, we’ve decided to make the move to the freedom afforded by self-hosting. Our main reason for making the switch is so that we can make use of some of the vast number of WordPress extensions to add extra features to this site.

For instance: this blog is now available in a slick format that’s optimized for mobile devices, courtesy of the sexy WPTouch plugin. Just visit hiringtheinternet.com on your iPhone, Ipod or Android phone to check it out.

You Can Take Our TV and Cell Phones, But Don't Touch the Internet

PewInternetProjectDon’t let the throngs of people clamoring for the new iPhone 3G S outside your neighborhood Apple store fool you. A new study from Pew Internet & American Life Project shows that in this time of economic hardship, people are giving up cell phones and TV.

One thing Americans aren’t willing to part with, however, is Internet service. In fact, even in the face of financial turmoil, more and more people are purchasing high-speed Internet.

A few key stats from the study:

MIT's Pattie Maes Talks 'Sixth Sense'

SixthSenseWe only need four syllables to describe the technology demonstrated by Pattie Maes, associate professor in MIT’s Program in Media Arts and Sciences, at last week’s TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) conference: IN-CRED-I-BLE!

Maes introduced a yet-unnamed product that, since its demo last week, has created a lot of buzz in the tech world for its far-reaching capabilities.

This wearable device, which Maes refers to as a “sixth sense,” contains a projector that paves the way for profound interaction with our environment. When we saw it, we immediately thought “Minority Report.” You remember the futuristic Tom Cruise/Colin Farrell sci-fi thriller where they never touched the computer, but rather manipulated the screens by simply moving their fingers in the air. Well, it’s here – and it’s beyond exciting!

(We can’t even do this invention justice in our description of it, so be sure to watch the video after the jump.)

Style.com Adds Juice to Apple’s iPhone With Couture and More

Invitation to New York Fashion Week get lost in the mail? Ours too. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get your fishtail-train fix.

Thanks to Style.com, the Spring ’09 ready-to-wear collections of Charles Nolan, Diane Von Furstenberg, Preen and 14 other designers are now available via an application made exclusively for iPhone and iPod Touch. According to a recent New York Times article, the app offers pics and vids from last July’s couture collections as well as daily updates from many of this week’s runway shows.

Hot on the heels of design demigods Ralph Lauren and Chanel, both of which recently launched mobile apps, Style.com’s app isn’t one of Apple’s forgettable third-party throwaways; to fashionphiles, it’s the equivalent of Gianni Versace rising from the dead to revive what lil’ sis Donatella destroyed. It’s also as comprehensive as apps in this category come, with show listings, blog items, and images that when tapped reveal a model’s name and a short review of the show in which he or she appeared.

So what does all this mean for you, ye of double-breasted Diors and Hervé Léger handbags?
