Kanuck54 writes "Today Amazon officially launched their Flexible Payments Service, firing a shot across the bows of both PayPal and Google Checkout. With the special fee structure on payments below ten dollars — all the way down to a quarter-cent fee on a one-cent transaction — it looks like micropayments just got a whole lot closer to reality. Integration is already completed or well-underway for an online invoicing service, a personal finance website, and a few others hand-picked by Amazon for early participation. There's even talk of a Facebook application for settling personal debts. With no setup or monthly fees and some very good rates, it looks like the online payment industry is about to feel the effects of a major shake-up."

+ - Is age 40 too old for IT or Software Development?

Submitted by
An anonymous reader writes "I have read some stuff on Dice.com's message boards where some people are claiming that after age 40 or so that jobs become very scarce in the IT profession. I was wondering how prevalent this really is, and in particular I was wondering how hard it would be to actually start a career in IT or Software Development at age 40.

I recently finished up a degree in physics, and I have done a little basic IT support as well as some programming as part of my job working in an environmental testing lab. How difficult would it be to start a computer career at age 40, and what industries and fields will have the most problem with my age and which will have the least problem with my age?"

There is no distinction between any AI program and some existent game.
