Apple added an Apple Pay landing page to its regional Mexico website late on Tuesday, indicating the mobile payment system could launch in the country imminently.


Way back in March there were suggestions that Apple Pay could be coming to Mexico, after reports that some iPhone users in the country had been able to add their Banregio cards to the Wallet app, with only the verification process failing.

Cards from banks other than Banregio were not able to be added to the Wallet app on the ‌‌iPhone‌‌, suggesting ‌‌Apple Pay‌‌ in Mexico could be limited to Banregio at launch.

That’s still uncertain, since the ‌Apple Pay‌ page on Apple’s Mexican website offers no launch date and doesn’t list any banks that will integrate with the service. All it says is ‌Apple Pay‌ will be compatible with “credit and debit cards of the most important payment networks, issued by various banks,”

(Bloomberg) — Ken Kutaragi, the legendary inventor of the PlayStation gaming console, is taking on one of the hardest jobs in robotics. And he’s getting paid nothing to do it.

The founder of Sony Corp.’s gaming business is the new chief executive officer of Ascent Robotics Inc., a Tokyo-based artificial intelligence startup. Kutaragi, 70, wants to make affordable robots that can safely move around and do physical work alongside humans in factories and logistics centers, and aims to have a working prototype in about a year. He said he receives no salary to save precious capital.

Raj Goodman Anand, an Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) member in London, is founder and CEO of Goodman Lantern, a native English content writing and software development services firm helping businesses sell better and grow faster. As the leader of a predominantly female team, we asked Raj about his experience with gender pay parity and workplace equity. Here’s what he shared:

I’m the founder of a company with a predominantly female team. That seems like a strange opening statement for a male CEO–and that’s part of the problem we’re dealing with in business today. 

Throughout my career, I’ve encountered mainly male-dominated spaces. Unfortunately, that isn’t surprising in the tech and marketing fields, in some countries more so than others. However, I see a distinct lack of female representation and leadership across all industries globally. And there is a gender pay gap that, by some estimates, won’t resolve for another 257 years.

Investment bank Cowen forecasts that Apple’s payment services, like Apple Pay, are well-positioned to take advantage of the growing fintech and retail markets.

In a note to investors seen by AppleInsider, lead analyst Krish Sankar notes that Apple’s digital payment platforms are a “fast growing but underrated part” of the company’s services business. The category includes Apple Pay, Apple Card, and Apple Pay Cash.

All three payment services have, collectively, shown growth of around 100% year-over-year, the analayst said. The ongoing coronavirus pandemic also appears to have accelerated growth and adoption of the financial technology (fintech) services.

“While Apple has portrayed these digital services as complementary to its mobile hardware platforms, we believe future scaling out of these services globally coupled with increasing depth and sophistication of them could position Apple as an emerging contender in the fintech space,” Sankar writes.

Within Apple’s fintech segment, the analyst expects Apple

Optus announced on Friday a new routing product named Game Path where NBN users will be able to pay AU$10 a month for fewer hops of their traffic.

The company is targeting gamers, with users needing to run an application in Windows to take advantage of it. The Singaporean-owned telco said Game Path can “reduce lag on average by 30% — which can mean the difference between life and death in a PC game”.

Optus told ZDNet it was not using any traffic prioritisation, explaining that NBN connections would remain TC-4. Instead, traffic will travel over the fastest available path “using proxy technology, choosing the most optimal/lowest latency path for gaming traffic across the internet”.

“It does this by accessing hundreds of POPs all over the world and constantly analysing the fastest path to gaming servers,” a spokesperson said.

“This will create the most benefit when considering

LONDON — Google said it will pay publishers around $1 billion for news over the next three years. 

The pledge was announced by Google Chief Executive Sundar Pichai in a blog post on Thursday. 

“I have always valued quality journalism and believed that a vibrant news industry is critical to a functioning democratic society,” Pichai said. 

News publishers including Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp and German media giant Axel Springer have been calling on Google to pay them for their content for almost a decade but the search giant has refused up until now. 

Google plans to pay publishers to create and curate content for a new mobile product called Google News Showcase, which will initially go live in Brazil and Germany

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Alphabet’s Google plans to pay $1 billion to publishers globally for their content over the next three years, its CEO said on Thursday, a move that could help it win over a powerful group amid heightened regulatory scrutiny worldwide.

News publishers have long fought the world’s most popular internet search engine for compensation for using their content, with European media groups leading the charge.

CEO Sundar Pichai said the new product called Google News Showcase will launch first in Germany, where it has signed up German newspapers including Der Spiegel, Stern, Die Zeit, and in Brazil with Folha de S.Paulo, Band and Infobae.

The product will be rolled out in Belgium, India, the Netherlands and other countries. About 200 publishers in Argentina, Australia, Britain, Brazil, Canada and Germany have signed up to the product.

“This financial commitment – our biggest to date –
