Submission + - I'll pay with Google (cnet.com)

eedwardsjr writes: If you ever wanted to pay just by saying something out loud, then Hands Free is the way to go.

'Google on Wednesday released to the public a new app called Hands Free, which lets people pay for items in stores by simply telling the cashier, "I'll pay with Google."'

Hey, what could go wrong?

0 accidents and 0 tickets for the past 21 years. Defensive driving certificate for several years. My company still wanted to charge almost $1,100 for 6 months to cover 2 vehicles. one is a 2011 and one is a 1997. Told them to pike off and went with a reputable company. I am now paying around $400 for the same coverage. I totally agree. It has nothing to do with payout vs premium. It is more based on pure greed.

Comment 70k for all (Score 1) 482

From the article:

While a campaign is underway in B.C. to raise the minimum wage to 15 dollars, a Seattle company is going to pay its employees at least $70,000 a year.

Basically everyone (even the janitors) will make 70k. I'm sure the CEO will have stock and options in the company to make far more than 70k but his "official" earnings is the same.
