RileyWalz writes: A new Swedish startup, "Quixter", lets you quickly pay on the go with a new idea. All you have to do is press your palm into the scanning device, and enter the last four digits of your cell phone number and your payment will be submitted. The device takes only about five seconds to read the movement of blood vessels in your palm, and determine who you are. The founder, Fredrik Leifland, says "We had to connect all the players ourselves, which was quite complex: the vein-scanning terminals, the banks, the stores and the customers. The next step was finding ways of packaging it into a solution that was user friendly." You can find more information on this start-up by visiting the company's website at quixter.se

Of the 550 million users who have tweeted before, 43 percent poster their last tweet over a year ago. And only about 13.3 percent have tweeted in the last 30 days. This could be a sign of many users just signing up and forgetting about their account, or they just prefer reading other's posts. Twitter is not commenting on this data, saying that they do not talk about third-party information related to its service.
