PayPal and Point-of-Sale at HomeDepot http://ow.ly/8oVtr

I have been a fan of PayPal for years, and a member since before they were owned by eBay. They have only gotten better over the past 5 years. I used my PayPal account for a large majority of my purchasing this past holiday season… ALL of which was done online. I have to say it was the best holiday "shopping" experience I have ever had. One thing I would enjoy is to have PayPal option at my local retail store. Would this entice me back into a retail store during holiday season? Probably not, but on a normal / non-holiday weekly basis? Absolutely. Excellent job PayPal and AJB. Looking forward to this changing the way we shop and conduct commerce.

This is cool though. I do miss #NFL football and sitting all day with my fantasy #football team while I engage in "friendly" competition with my colleagues, friends and family. #eBay is making shopping a unique experience (again), and this time with an #iPad app that allows you to purchase while you watch. The downside of this (for me) is that I would typically not watch commercials and be switching between 4-6 games at a time on multiple screens.

Why not advertise in the lower thirds of the screen? Premium spot (even if annoying at times), yet popping a #QR code in the bottom right of the screen for a players jersey would work for me. I once bought a Hines Ward Jersey after watching him demolish a team. that was 6+ years ago. Also, in #Europe they show NFL games so differently. Used to #soccer they really do not have the sponsorships/advertisers that the US has. So instead of the mind numbing #commercial breaks they switch to commentators who analyze the game and talk strategy. PERFECT time for those QR codes and advertising. I enjoy watch UK broadcasts online much more than in the US.

Do I see myself getting #cable #fios or #satellite #TV again soon? Nope, but I am still a huge fan of #innovation of all forms. The annoying threshold must be watched though!

Who still has cable? Is this innovation of interest to you (sports or otherwise)?
