Starbucks tests iOS payments

HyperMac is noting that its soon-to-be-pulled battery gear is compatible with new MacBook Airs, while Starbucks is testing an iOS payment option across New York City.


HyperMac today said that its soon-to-be-extinct external MacBook batteries are compatible with the latest Air models. 60Wh, 100Wh, 150Wh and 222Wh capacities are available, theoretically offering up to six times the capacity of 11-inch Air's built-in battery. The 222Wh battery is said to extend the 11-inch Air's life by roughly 32 hours, whereas the 13-inch computer gains 38 hours. The gear will remain available until November 2nd for $200 (60Wh), $300 (100Wh), $400 (150Wh) and $500 (222Wh). A $150 car charger is also an option.

Starbucks launches new payment option across NYC

Nearly 300 Starbucks locations across New York City having begun testing a system called Starbucks Mobile Payment. The service provides an alternate payment method for people who own an iPhone or iPod touch. To take advantage of the option, customers must register a card on Starbucks.com and then download the free Starbucks Card Mobile app from the App Store. Payments can then be made by holding an iOS device up to a counter scanner at participating shops.
