Best merchant services of 2019

By | June 16th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

The need to take card payments online and off has become paramount for the modern business. However, to do that requires payment processing, usually supplied by merchant service providers. 

This can come in the form of a card reader for physical PoS (Point of Sale) transactions, in which even an app on your phone or other mobile device can run the transaction through. Additionally, or alternatively, you can also get credit card processing to run through an ecommerce site.

PoS processing fees tend to be cheaper, on the grounds that the customer is physically present and so the chances of fraud are less than anonymous online transactions.… Read the full article

By | June 16th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Sony’s newest premium handset, the Sony Xperia 1, launched at a whopping $949 / £849 price tag – that’s one of the highest prices of any Sony phone, and it puts it in league with the Samsung Galaxy S10, Samsung’s most recent flagship handset.

Facebook is tweaking how it ranks public comments so the worst ones get hidden

By | June 16th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Facebook is taking more steps to try and limit negative comments and abuse on its platform, introducing an improved ranking system for comments on public profiles that will hopefully lead to more "meaningful conversations".

Public comments on busy pages (like those for a celebrity for instance) are already ranked to some extent, using considerations like how many interactions a comment gets and various other "integrity signals".

Now Facebook says it's also going to take into account whether owners of pages and their network of friends have interacted with a comment.… Read the full article

Like its predecessor the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, the handset apparently features a rectangular panel to house the camera lenses – only this time there are four of them rather than three.… Read the full article

OnSight: an afternoon at Berlin’s SENIC

By | June 16th, 2019|Categories: DAR|Tags: , , , , |

The move from CDs to rips, downloads and cloud streaming has robbed us of the button pushes one used to open and close a CD player drawer, to play the CD, to pause it, to skip tracks and, in many cases, the immense satisfaction of using a rotary to adjust the volume. Many of us now control music playback and volume with a smartphone (and little else).

One downside (especially when the phone rings with an incoming call) is that we must pull the smartphone from a pocket, unlock it – with fingerprint, finger-drag or PIN – before launching the control app (Sonos, BluOS, Roon, etc.) that allows us to hit pause or finger-slide the volume downwards.… Read the full article
