PayPal merchants can now accept Bitcoin

Today PayPal, with some reservations, launched Bitcoin support for users of its payments service in North America.

Bitcoin support, however, doesn’t appear automatic. PayPal shares that “PayPal digital goods merchants” can now “accept Bitcoin with a simple integration through the PayPal Payments Hub.”

PayPal made clear in its official release that Bitcoin will not be fully integrated into the company’s core digital wallet; PayPal will leave Bitcoin payment processing to the third-parties above: “To be clear, today’s news does not mean that PayPal has added Bitcoin as a currency in our digital wallet or that Bitcoin payments will be processed on our secure payments platform.”

10 open source alternatives for paid onces

Using a windows computer has become costlier than is to buy a computer

Here are some of best open source alternative that make your lives easier. The best part of most of them is free upgrades to the latest version.

1. Operating System (OS)

I always suggest home users to go with LINUX based operating system. We can find drastic improvements to the LINUX based operating system. The best part of it is free upgrade to the latest version. I would suggest users to go with Ubuntu, famous LINUX based operating system.

2. Editing Tools

I would suggest users to go with Google Docs or Open Office. Both of the tools have proved to be a best counterpart of Office 2013 or Office 2014 MAC version. I see that both the tools almost have the same feature that are on Microsoft Office. I always recommend users to try Google Doc or Open Office. Open Office is suitable for users without internet and for those who have internet can go with Google Docs. Another advantage of Google Docs is storage, you can store the edited files in the cloud as safe as you can.

3. Compression Tools

I would prefer 7zip rather than Winzip or WinRar, which is found to be the most common among windows users. The best part of 7zip is that 7zip is backward compatible. You can use it to open any older or newer version of the compressed files. The other advantage is 7zip supports opening and compression of almost all the formats available.

4. Mail

Microsoft has even given its free tool that most of us don’t know. The Windows Live setup include a Windows Mail, which is a free alternative of Outlook, that has almost all the functions on Outlook, that we use commonly. Those who have moved to Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 have been using Mail tool and missing the “Archive function”, here is a small information for you. You can open the folder location  C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Packages\microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_XXX \LocalState\Indexed\LiveComm\XXX\XXX That folder must enclose a Mail folder. Inside the Mail folder you must have number folder 1, 2, 3, etc, the 1st folder has your windows mail’s and the rest in the other folders. You can search for older mails in that folder

Android Powered $99 Ouya Games Console Shipped To First Supporters

ouya-android

A new games console which industry experts say could disrupt the industry has begun shipping to kickstarter backers who helped the Android-based project get going last year. For the rest of us, there’s an official retail release date: June 4.

Games on the system will be a fraction of the cost of traditional console games, more comparable to those found on mobiles and tablets. However, it may struggle to muscle in on a market dominated by big players such as PlayStation and Xbox, one analyst predicted.

The Ouya was financed using crowdfunding website Kickstarter, where it attracted over $8m (£5.3m) in funding from 63,416 backers.

The company has begun sending out consoles to the first supporters of the project – while other interested gamers can pre-order the device.

About 55 games will be available with today’s release, according to [Ouya founder Julie] Uhrman. The cube-shaped player uses a version of Android that requires developers to create applications and games just for the device. Games must be free, offer a free trial or have free add-ons, the company said. … Ouya plans to keep 30 percent of game sales, with developers getting the rest.
