Google Leaves Their Wallet Exposed
from the pick-pocketed dept
If you want to avoid being pick pocketed, you shouldn't leave your wallet exposed. Google, which has been rumored for some time to be offering some sort of payment system, apparently forgot to keep the system hidden, as a few resourceful folks dug deep enough to discover a (now offline) website for "Google Purchases." It might not be a payment system, exactly, but it did ask users for their credit card info. While there had been some speculation that any such offering would just be for content, there's a good chance it would be for much more. Of course, it's disappointing that they ignored my suggestion to call it G-Money.
