Those of you who are unfamiliar with PayPal, PayPal is an eBay company. It allows people to send and receive money online. There’s no fee to open an account, and it costs nothing to send money or have it transferred to your U.S. bank account.

PayPal is the safer, easier way to pay and get paid online. The service allows anyone to pay in any way they prefer, including through credit cards, bank accounts, buyer credit or account balances, without sharing financial information.
PayPal has quickly become a global leader in online payment solutions with more than 164 million accounts worldwide. Available in 190 markets and 17 currencies around the world, PayPal enables global ecommerce by making payments possible across different locations, currencies, and languages.

PayPal has received more than 20 awards for excellence from the internet industry and the business community -most recently the 2006 Webby Award for Best Financial Services Site and the 2006 Webby People’s Voice Award for Best Financial Services Site.

Located in San Jose, California, PayPal was founded in 1998 and was acquired by eBay in 2002.

PayPal also offers debit and credit cards which are connected to your PayPal account. They also have a money market that allows you to collect interest on your PayPal balance.  If you use the PayPal debit card you can also get 1.5% cash back on certain purchases. I particularly like to use my PayPal debit card to pay for gas, groceries, and general household items at CVS stores.  It’s always handy to get cash back on these everyday needs.


Sign up for PayPal and start accepting credit card payments instantly.

Pioneer Plans To Launch Blu-ray Recorders


Following up on yesterday’s news from Pioneer, today Pioneer announced its plans to release Blu-ray recorders in Japan by year’s end. Currently, there are no official plans for overseas sales.

At this time Sony, Panasonic, and Sharp dominate the Japanese domestic market for Blu-ray sales. Pioneer’s recorders will be developed with Sharp which already sells its own Blu-ray recorders. Sharp is Pioneer’s largest shareholder with a 14% stake in the company.

In the US, Blu-ray recorders are only available as a computer peripheral, and not as a home recorder for the television. Sony unveiled BDZ-S77 Blu-Ray Disc Recorder for sale in Japan, 5 years ago, in 2003.
