Songs of the Month

We all have certain songs we listen to for a month at a time and never listen again. Musi, a music application found a way for you to chew your ear off with your flavor’s of the month. Using Youtube videos, Musi will extract just the audio and create playlists for you with all your favorite songs. Internet connection is required. This is yet another way to prevent people from stealing songs. Legally, you can listen to your favorite songs for free and then move on to the next when ‘you’re over it’.  No complaints.

Wonder how quickly record execs will get on this with royally requirements.

Charging Credit Cards with out a Credit Card Machine


Today, there are many ways to accept credit cards with out an actual credit card machine. My favorite 2 companies are Square and Jumio. Square sends you a piece to attach to your phone and using this piece you can swipe someone’s credit card. You have to use the Square app and funds are transferred to your bank account. Jumio works in the same way only you take a picture of the credit card. They also offer ID verification using the same process.
