iPad Cash Register App

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on January 16th, 2011

Looks like the cash register is dead. Or soon will be. The iPad is already an essential business tool for some small business’ and a new cash register application should make it even easier for small businesses to take payments via their iPad. The application created by shopkeep.com has been put into service in the Joe coffee shop in Grand Central Terminal in New York. The new point-of-sale app will also print receipts and even makes the mandatory ka-ching when sales are rung up.

It will also transmit sales information to its web-based system so that managers using ShopKeep’s BackOffice software can track sales in real time, manage their inventory, run reports and export the data for use in other applications.

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on August 3rd, 2010

Sure, you have your choice of third-party iPad protective cases available, but Apple has a nicely functional iPad case of its own, and China’s patent office has now accepted Apple’s patent design for this iPad case. About time I guess.

The design has a microfiber interior and reinforced panels to provide some structure. As shown above, the case can fold down to double as a stand so you can type out emails easily. Looks a bit like a Trapper Keeper.

Target cashiers now play a “game” at the register

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on December 8th, 2009

Target cashiers now play a "game" at the registerLooks like Target cashiers now play a “game” when they check you out at the register. The score depends on how fast you’re doing your job. And yes, we realize that this game sucks and looks like no fun at all. But hey, that’s life working at Target right? I’ve played games on a watch that are more interesting than this.

It sounds like a great way to shame employees into working faster. Especially after a few cashiers start acting all snooty because they hold the high score. Then you want to put them in their place and beat them. But only “the man” wins in this scenario.

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on January 10th, 2009

Intelligent Cash Registers conceptYou knew it was coming. They’ve been dumb for too long. But it makes perfect sense for cash registers to get an IQ upgrade soon, and that’s what the Intelligent Cash Registers concept is all about. They are supposed to remember who you are know what your interests are.

Intel is going to release a prototype at the National Retail Federation show in New York on Sunday. It’s actually a collaboration between Intel and Frog Design. Frog Design will handle the hardware end, making sure its 3″ touchscreen terminal functions with Intel’s latest processors. The device will feature RFID card compatibility and rely on the Internet to up-sell and appeal to your impulse buying.

EPOS-lite: Touch interface cash register and built-in menu

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on September 28th, 2008

EPOS-lite: Touch interface cash register and built-in menuEPOS-lite is a cash register with a touch interface that also has a built-in menu. It was showcased at the University of Wolverhampton degree show 08 and at New Designers 08, London. It’s good for the environment because it eliminates the need for a separate menu that holds the pricing details. Not only that, but it makes it easy to update the menu.

It’s light, it’s convenient, it’s on every table. This is the sort of innovation that makes life easier. It’s the little things after all. The concept device also features a wireless charging option for on-table recharging. Designer Stephen Allport knows what he’s doing and he obviously has an eye for what is needed to make life easier on both sides of the table. Awesome concept and we’d love to see this one in the future.

Posted in HTC by Conner Flynn on July 27th, 2011

After several delays, Vodafone has decided to kill the EVO 3D instead of wait out HTC’s supply issues, and has removed it from the company’s “Coming Soon” page. Hopefully you weren’t waiting for this phone. If you were, we feel your pain.

Apple had one million Lion downloads in the first day

Posted in Apple by Reuben Drake on July 21st, 2011

Well, we knew that a whole bunch of people have downloaded Lion, but now Apple is making sure we know just how many downloads there have been. Turns out that the $29.99 update is pretty popular. Of course we knew that already.

Apple says that one million downloads of Lion have been registered in the first day of availability alone. That’s faster than any other OS release in the company’s history. So maybe their claims of it being the “best OS we’ve ever made” is true.

Since they already have their own iOS app, Starbucks is now bringing mobile payments to Android users, as well. The Starbucks for Android app is free. Just add credit to your mobile Starbucks Card and scan the app’s barcode at the cash register.

It’s available on devices running Android 2.1 or later and the service will also locate all Starbucks shops in your area and offer even more incentives via Starbucks’ rewards program.

Sony BMG Greece hacked

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on May 23rd, 2011

Man, Sony just can’t seem to get a break. Now Sony BMG Greece is the latest of the company’s properties to be hacked. The hackers attacked over the weekend and Hackers News Network uploaded sample extracts from a database of users’ names and email addresses onto pastebin after hackers who broke into SonyMusic.gr sent them a dump from their hack.

The data that was uploaded omits telephone numbers and password hashes that they claimed to have swiped from the site. The identities of the hackers are unknown and we have no idea if these are the same people behind the PSN attacks. Sony better get this under control before things get worse.

Square Enix gets hacked

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on May 15th, 2011

Sony isn’t the only company to get hacked. The makers of Final Fantasy, Square Enix, has just been hacked as well. A few of their websites have been compromised and the company confirmed that the e-mail addresses of up to 25,000 customers who had registered for product updates may have been stolen.

Also, resumes of 350 people applying for jobs in its Canadian office could also have been copied from the web servers. They immediately took the sites offline to assess how it happened and what had been accessed, then they took the necessary measures to increase security of all of their websites, before going live again.

Sony Confirms ‘External Intrusion’ in PSN Outage

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on April 24th, 2011

Sony has confirmed that a ‘External Intrusion’ is behind the ongoing PSN Outage. The outage has been happening since late Wednesday and Sony says that it is due to “an external intrusion on our system.” Patrick Seybold said that the service was taken offline “to conduct a thorough investigation and to verify the smooth and secure operation of our network services.” That’s about all we know.

As of right now we don’t have any word on when the service will be back. Lets hope they can get it running quickly. PlayStation Network has 69 million registered accounts worldwide. Sony doesn’t want these users unhappy enough that they switch consoles.

Angry Birds is the best-selling PSN game

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on April 11th, 2011

Out of all of the games on PSN, which do you think is the bestselling? Surely something that’s been getting sales for a while right? Wrong. Angry Birds, which was just released on the PlayStation Network in January of this year, has already become the best-selling game on the platform. That’s pretty amazing when you think of all of the other big PSN games. Those birds have channeled their anger to become an unstoppable force.

The info comes from Lazard Capital Markets analyst Colin Sebastian. He didn’t give any specific sales figures, but he did say that PSN now has “75M registered accounts Worldwide, half of those are in North America, with over 1.4B pieces of content downloaded since launch. He also stated that PSN is becoming more popular among more casual users. Yeah, obviously that’s true.

Amazon exploring Mobile-Payment Service for Handsets

Posted in Amazon by Conner Flynn on March 31st, 2011

Amazon.com is considering the introduction of a service that would let customers pay for goods in brick-and-mortar stores using their mobile phones. This info comes from “two people with knowledge of the project” so we don’t have any confirmation just yet.

This service would use near field communication (NFC) technology, which allows devices to transmit data like payment information, loyalty points and coupons by simply tapping them against special cash registers. It makes sense for Amazon to venture into this field since Microsoft, Apple and Google are said to be planning software, devices or services with NFC themselves. If this does happen it should happen within six months time.

20% of Americans use the internet while driving

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on March 3rd, 2011

Texting while driving is already a serious problem, but now there’s another danger to watch out for. Drivers who use the internet on the phone while driving. According to a survey by US insurance company, State Farm, one in five Americans that own a smartphone admits to using the internet while driving.

One of the biggest reasons they log on to the internet is to check their social networks. Other reasons cited were looking for directions, reading email or just searching for topics that interest them. Most of the time this occurs during red lights or when drivers are caught in traffic jams. I guess that at least is good news.
