Touch N Go is easily one of the most used cashless payment systems in the country. With its widespread adoption in toll booths, public transports and selected merchants, it’s really hard to escape using it. And it’s a convenient service…for the most part.
Now, the company has begun beta testing their brand new ‘cashless’ mobile payment system, Touch N Go Wallet. The only problem is that I don’t think they fully grasped what made TNG convenient in the first place. Why? Well, this new mobile system uses QR codes and PIN numbers instead of NFC.

One of Windows (Mobile)’s biggest holes is the fact that the app store is such a barren desert. Many well-known apps are missing and that’s just one of the reasons why people don’t even start to consider the operating system. For the year 2015, Google’s Play Store and Apple’s App Store have at least 1.2 million apps each – Windows? Only 300,000.
Redmond wanted to solve this, by introducing a Windows Bridge platform aka Project Astoria. Through the project, app developers could easily just port over the same Android code that they used to make apps for the Google Play Store for Windows Phone devices.
Then, last year rumours flared up that Project Astoria was going bust and now Microsoft has confirmed it themselves.

A document has surfaced detailing that Facebook will be launching ads in their Messenger app sometime in the Q2 of 2016. That means instead of getting harassed by friends who need help with “likes” on their newly established page or participation in an assignment survey of theirs, you’ll now be getting bombarded by businesses and brands.
Well, when you compare the two, it’s essentially the same thing but with “friends” you could easily just get rid of them by “unfriending” them, ads on the opposing end is more or less involuntary.
