Plastc Card Release Date

Plastc replaces your entire wallet with one incredible card

Plastc replaces your entire wallet with one incredible card

By on October 7, 2014 at 9:00 AM.

The mobile payments space is finally starting to heat up in the United States now that Apple’s contactless payment solution is almost ready for primetime, but it will still be years before Apple Pay even comes close to being able to replace your wallet. While the sleek solution allows iPhone users to pay for goods online and in a handful of stores, the majority of retail establishments we visit will not support Apple Pay at launch. And what about scannable rewards cards or getting cash at an ATM? Even years from now, there will still be limitations that Apple Pay doesn’t overcome, and there will still be plenty of establishments that don’t accept Apple Pay or other similar services.

There is a gap between now and several years down the road when mobile payment solutions are truly ubiquitous, and Palo Alto-based startup Plastc might be the company to fill that gap. More →

T-Mobile CellSpot Review

T-Mobile CellSpot review: Another game-changer from the Un-carrier

T-Mobile CellSpot review: Another game-changer from the Un-carrier

By on September 17, 2014 at 8:00 AM.

What if, with a comparatively minuscule investment, a wireless carrier could increase its network coverage dramatically without building a single new cell tower or working out any new licensing deals? It might sound impossible, but T-Mobile did exactly that last week when it announced plans to “unleash” Wi-Fi.

The company’s “Un-carrier 7.0” event was quite entertaining, as all events led by T-Mobile CEO John Legere are. But this is about much more than entertainment. In an industry dominated by risk-averse giants that are perceived as anything but consumer friendly, T-Mobile is forcing change that, for the most part, benefits subscribers as much as it benefits the company’s bottom line.

And T-Mobile’s latest big Un-carrier move fits that mold perfectly. More →
