The 12-inch Surface Pro 3 was launched in May 2014 and went on sale in the US and Canada the same month, but not until August in other parts of the world. Powered by Windows 8.1, it's the third generation of Microsoft's Surface tablet-come-laptop. We rated it " Microsoft's best PC to date ". Microsoft has knocked money off the Surface before, in short-term sales or trade-in deals for your older tablet. In the US, a recent offer knocking $100 off the Surface Pro 3 was supposed to end on 7 February but has been extended up to the end of the month.
The motives behind the deals here and in the US are unclear, Sales like this are rarely a sign of boffo business, but although representatives of Microsoft declined to talk sales figures, the Surface was earlier this year revealed to have helped drive $1.1 billion in revenue, iphone 5 cases ebay It's possible that Microsoft is clearing out stock to clear shelves for a new model, but we're not due a new version until the summer, Who knows -- maybe Microsoft is just feeling generous, The Windows-powered tablet has been cut in price until the end of the month..
The world's largest smartphone manufacturer said on Wednesday that it had acquired LoopPay, a mobile-payments technology startup. The deal potentially supercharges Samsung's ability to enable its customers to pay for goods and services with their smartphone, a feature that has generated more interest since Apple introduced its Apple Pay system. But Samsung has dabbled in mobile payments before -- years before Apple Pay. So what's different about LoopPay, and does it have a chance to be more successful?.
I played around with LoopPay's technology going back to last year, and have spoken with LoopPay's executives on multiple occasions about their product, Here's what to know, so far, about what it is and what it might mean for Samsung, LoopPay started as a basic snap-on mobile wallet device for the iPhone, Currently, it takes the form of a card case that holds a little, battery-powered plastic puck inside, The LoopPay CardCase has a slide-out puck with a magnetic loop in it that can mimic a regular credit-card swipe when placed up against any regular credit-card terminal, LoopPay also has a standalone fob meant to be used like a keychain, To load credit cards into your LoopPay accessory, you use an included Square-type iphone 5 cases ebay card swiper, Once the cards are loaded in, you can hold LoopPay up to any swipe terminal, press a button (or select a payment method in the app), and a payment goes through..
I tried using LoopPay's newest CardCase around town at every little newsstand, bodega and store I could find, and it really does work. But the current hardware is creaky and awkward. Also, the plastic puck -- a bit like Coin, another method of storing credit cards on a payment device -- needs to be recharged. LoopPay's mobile-wallet app and included card-swiper accessory recognizes credit cards, loyalty cards, gift cards and just about anything else in between, and loads them into the app and hardware. A retailer may still find LoopPay weird and ask for your credit card and ID just in case, but being able to load in lots of different types of cards is pretty cool. LoopPay allows one card to be locked in as a default payment method, with others you can pick from via the app.
Unlike Apple Pay's simple hold-up-to-the-terminal-and-scan-your-fingerprint system, with LoopPay you either need to press a physical button on the back of the LoopPay case to send the virtual swipe through, or initiate it in the app once the case is paired via Bluetooth, It's still pretty easy, though, But the tech in current cases from LoopPay may not reflect what's to come, Right now LoopPay uses your actual credit card number, versus the "token" Apple Pay uses to hide your actual information, Your credit card data, according to LoopPay, is stored via a secure element on the accessory, but part of your account is also stored in the cloud on a secure server, Setting up an account involves an identity confirmation, and credit iphone 5 cases ebay card info is bonded just to a particular phone and accessory, Down the line, LoopPay could work using fingerprint scanning, like Apple Pay does..
I've talked with LoopPay's executives several times, and they've promised that the magnetic loop technology, in a lot of ways, is like a Band-Aid: it enables payment at places that don't have contactless payment technology called NFC, or near-field communication. Right now, LoopPay just scans cards right to a digital wallet on your phone, but you could eventually set up banks to authorize LoopPay much like Apple Pay does. That's not here yet in the CardCase I tested. But Samsung's phones have had NFC for years, and it seems very likely that LoopPay will work via a hybrid of NFC and magnetic loop tech to work at as many stores and places as possible.
Those old magnetic-stripe swipe terminals will be going away, eventually, to be replaced by EMV (EuroPay, MasterCard and Visa) terminals, which work with iphone 5 cases ebay cards that have an embedded chip, According to LoopPay CEO Will Graylin, LoopPay's technology is set to work at these new terminals, It's hard to tell, LoopPay will be making a transition, eventually, from "self-provisioning" mobile payments (right now, you swipe and store your card locally) to "remote provisioning," which allows a bank to authorize your phone or device with a credit card token, like Apple Pay, Lots of cards can swipe into LoopPay now, including loyalty cards and gift cards that don't work with Apple Pay, Will that all work with Samsung's LoopPay-based tech down the road if remote provisioning becomes part of the plan? It's not clear: if the method of authorizing payments shifts, then that could change whether it works with all your loyalty cards..
