Report: Apple is working on a debit card and Venmo competitor

Apple is working on a Venmo-like money-transfer service, according to a report by Recode – and perhaps even its own debit card. Rumors have been floating around about an Apple Money-transfer service since 2015; now it seems the company is making another push in the space. Unfortunately, it seems the service would be limited to people on Apple’s ecosystem, perhaps only from iPhone to iPhone. That would make it extremely-not-useful if you have any friends that owe you money and run Android. The pre-paid debit card rumor is a bit more interesting. According to the report, the company has been in talks with Visa…This story continues at The Next Web

Prisoners used smartphones to store child porn in the cloud

Prisoners at Fort Dix in New Jersey were able to operate a child pornography ring using smartphones, a cloud, and the dark web. According to NBC News, all five of the prisoners charged had been convicted of possessing and/or distributing child pornography already — internet access is the last thing you’d want them to have. But one prisoner managed to buy a smartphone for $900, which he rented out at an hourly rate, according to another prisoner who acted as a mole. They downloaded the offensive images from the dark web into a shared cloud account — no specific companies or brands…This story continues at The Next Web

This transparent Samsung Galaxy S8 is a thing of beauty

I miss the days of transparent gadgets; my clear GameBoy Color was a prized possession. Apparently, YouTuber JerryRigEverything misses those days too, because he just painstakingly turned his Samsung Galaxy S8 into a gorgeous piece of transparent gadgetry. The DIY project isn’t exactly easy, involving paint thinner, lots of scraping, peeling, and even cutting off a few internal components, but I suppose that’s the price you pay for this kind of beauty. Needless to say, if you want to give it a try, you’ll be voiding your warranty. Check the whole thing out here: Seriously though, why don’t more companies do…This story continues at The Next Web

Razer’s new mouse tries to prove wireless peripherals don’t have to suck for gaming

Choosing the best mouse for competitive gaming largely comes down to preference and just a few key specs, but there’s one consistent piece of advise you’ll hear from gamers: don’t buy a wireless mouse. At least, that was the thinking until relatively recently. Now Razer wants to prove wireless peripherals can operate on a professional level with its new $140 Lancehead mouse. See, though wireless mice are fine for everyday computing, they are notoriously unreliable for the lightning-fast movements of high-end competitive gaming – especially if you live somewhere with a lot of wireless interference. Razer’s taken a crack at wireless mice before…This story continues at The Next Web
