Walmart Begins Testing Of Its Own Payment App

As the single largest retailer in the world, if any store can use their own payment system, it is Walmart. But even if it’s a retail giant, is it really worth it for a store to launch their own payment app? Walmart’s mobile payment system would allow customers to make their purchases through a smartphone app. The app could take major credit or debit cards, or the company’s own gift card. Walmart began testing this payment system last week at locations in Arkansas. By early next year, Walmart…

Samsung Rumoured To Release Phone With Foldable Screen

For so long, we’ve been used to staring at smartphones that all look fairly similar: rectangular-shaped with one screen only.  But what if some variation of the flip-phone were to return to the marketplace and become popular once again?

BMW and Samsung prove remote controlled cars are a reality

In the James Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies, gadget master Q gives Pierce Brosnan’s Bond a new BMW that can be controlled remotely by his sleek new cell phone (sleek for the year 1997, that is). This leads to an action sequence where he directs the car from his hotel room to pick him up by the parking garage entrance and then drives it while crouched down in the backseat to avoid getting hit with enemy gunfire. Apparently, this may become a reality someday (the…

Samsung challenges Roomba with new laser pointer feature

The Roomba is no longer just a simple vacuuming device. From the appearance of Tom Haverford’s iPod dock-wearing DJ Roomba on Parks and Recreation to the steady YouTube phenomenon of pitting them against each other in armed fights, they’ve become a pop culture touchstone.
