What’s in Your Bag? is a recurring feature in which we ask people to tell us a bit more about their everyday gadgets by opening their bags and hearts to us. This week, we’re featuring electronic music trio Cash Cash. If there were a theme to the items in Cash Cash’s bag, it would be “always be prepared.” It’s the touring DJ’s version of a Boy Scout’s bag, and every tiny pocket is filled with things that are there for “just in case” situations. When you’re skipping to different cities every week, carrying earplugs, Emergen-C, Pedialyte, gummy vitamins, and Zicam isn’t overkill; it’s a way to survive the cycle of late nights and early flights. In fact, today, they’ll be playing celeb-drenched festival Coachella. The trio, made up of brothers Jean Paul Makhlouf and Alex Makhlouf, as well as lifelong friend Samuel Frisc, has made their mark merging the worlds of electronic, pop, hip-hop, and tinges of rock. … [Read more...] about What’s In Your Bag, Cash Cash?

The Titanic slipped beneath the dark waves of the North Atlantic in the early morning hours of April 15, 1912. Over 1,500 people lost their lives, and the luxury passenger ship became an emblem of disaster. The sinking of the Titanic prompted a media frenzy, an overhaul of maritime safety practices, and plenty of fictional depictions of what happened on that cold April night over a hundred years … [Read more...] about 5 wild conspiracy theories surrounding the sinking of the Titanic
Technology keeps making it easier to separate you from your money. PayPal enabled you to easily send money via the internet. Square allowed businesses to use a smartphone to accept your credit card. Apple Pay and Android Pay flipped this idea on its head and let you pay with your phone instead of a card. Despite this innovation in how consumers can pay businesses, the way businesses pay each other hasn't changed much. San Francisco startup Fundbox wants to give businesses another option. The company already offers loans to small businesses, tapping into the businesses’ bank and accounting software to decide whether to lend. Its new service, Fundbox Pay, is essentially a combination of a credit card and a payment system like PayPal for small businesses. The idea is simple, but it takes some explaining. Many small companies extend credit to other businesses. A wholesaler, for example, might ship flour to a bakery with the expectation of getting paid 30 or 60 days later.

Without underestimating the iPhone, I'm not too sure that Sprint customers, different from Verizon' s customers, have been waiting "desperately" for it to come to the "Now Network" and with other phones on the way..... posted on 24 Aug 2011, 11:52 1 15. E.N. (Posts: 2610; Member since: 25 Jan 2009) If iPhone comes to Sprint, it will break records and probably be their best selling phone.
