In a South African ad for Chinese social networking giant WeChat, a guy named Mark who started a social network visits a therapist. The ad never explicitly states that the “Mark” in the ad is supposed to be Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, but the clues are all there, including the wavy brown hair and what look like Adidas flip-flops

“I invented the social network and now my friends — they’re unfriending me,” the Mark in the WeChat ad tells his therapist

The therapist suggests a cure: Using WeChat’s “Friends Radar” function, which locates your nearby friends. Facebook just launched a similar feature last week called Nearby Friends Read more…

FCC: Trust Us, We’ll Protect an Open Internet

Published on April 24th, 2014 by admin in Social Media

As the FCC prepared new rules that could allow Internet service providers to give preferential treatment to digital content of their choosing, the commission’s chairman said Thursday that he had no intention of reversing existing policy, denying reports that the principles of net neutrality would be gutted.

The FCC’s proposal would potentially allow Internet service providers (ISPs) like Comcast or Verizon to negotiate with online content providers like Netflix, Amazon or Hulu, and charge them for faster delivery of their content to U.S. consumers. As word spread about the proposal on Wednesday, critics viewed it as a reversal of the FCC’s Open Internet rules, which are supposed to bar ISPs from discriminating against Internet traffic.

On the heels of opening a new massive headquarters in San Francisco, mobile payment company Square is now expanding its presence in New York City

Square, which allows users to accept credit card payments via mobile devices such as the iPhone, iPad and Android smartphones, will be opening an East Coast headquarters in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan this summer

This isn’t Square’s first set up in New York. When it acquired design agency 80/20 in 2012, it opened a small Manhattan office, but the new space has room to fit 350 employees.

The news comes amid rumors that Square could be acquired in the near future, with both Google and Apple reportedly interested in acquisition bids. But in a statement provided to Mashable, a Square spokesperson denied acquisition talks. Read more…

Ondot Launches Remote Control for Credit Cards

Published on April 24th, 2014 by admin in Social Media

A new app will allow users to control nearly every aspect of how their credit or debit cards are used directly from their smartphones.

CardControl is a service that aims to reduce the prevalence of credit card fraud by letting users set controls that determine how each card can be used from their smartphone. The hitch is that banks must opt in to the service before individuals can use it

“You use your card at a merchant the way you normally would, but you use your phone as a remote control to determine when, where and how the card can be used,” Ondot’s CEO and cofounder Vaduvur Bharghavan told Mashable. “We’re putting intelligence into the card without touching the card in any way.” Read more…

Lyft Expands, Passes Uber in Total U.S. Cities

Lyft, the ridesharing service that matches regular drivers with passengers in need of a ride, expanded into 24 new cities on Thursday, the company’s largest single-day expansion to date

The move means Lyft now operates in 60 U.S. cities, surpassing competitor Uber which currently operates in 46, according to Uber’s website. Uber does have more cities worldwide, however, and announced its 100th on Wednesday

Lyft has been preparing for this launch for months, Lyft cofounder John Zimmer told Mashable. The process is more complex than simply flipping a switch on the app, he explains. To ensure supply can match the expected demand, Zimmer says that each new city will start with roughly 100 drivers, who have all been vetted by Lyft employees ahead of time Read more…

You Can Have Lunch With Tim Cook at Apple — But It’ll Cost You

Published on April 24th, 2014 by admin in Social Media

Apple CEO Tim Cook is willing to have lunch with you and a friend at the company’s Cupertino, Calif., headquarters, but it might set you back a couple thousand dollars.

Cook is putting his time up for an online auction as a part of the 8th Annual Robert F. Kennedy Center Spring Auction for Human Rights, in partnership with Charitybuzz.com. The highest bidder will get a one-hour sit-down lunch at Caffe Macs, the cafe at Apple’s headquarters, to discuss anything.

While startups and entrepreneurs will likely claw at the chance to have Cook’s undivided attention, the opportunity may come at a high price. Last year, Cook auctioned off a 30-minute coffee date at the Apple campus that sold for $610,000 (an all-time high for the RFK Center); it was the first time ever he agreed to a celebrity auction. According to Charitybuzz, last year’s coffee date ran over the scheduled time to about an hour, with a good bit of time spent in Cook’s office. This year, he’s offering a full lunch meeting Read more…

Ukraine’s Taxi Drivers Navigate Barricades, Curfews and Masked Gunmen

The roads in eastern Ukraine are covered in barricades manned by armed separatists. A nightly curfew is in place, and talk of a Russian invasion hangs in the air

If you drive a taxi, how are you supposed to work?

That’s the question an unnamed taxi driver posed to a correspondent for Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty during a recent drive around the eastern Ukrainian city of Sloviansk, where pro-Russian separatists are in a standoff with Ukrainian troops.

The ride, which was captured on video, offers a unique view into the city’s tense streets. It also shows the fear average citizens have over the unidentified “little green men” — a name that has been used to describe the masked gunmen that have taken power. Read more…
