The Woolet Is A Wallet That Yells At You When You Leave It Behind

TECHCRUNCH: The Internet of Things promised us a deeper connection with our objects. We would be hugging our toasters, marrying our fridges, and sleeping with our bathroom scales. But nothing out there so far could talk back to us until the Woolet. The Woolet is a wallet that contains a small beacon that connects to your phone. When you leave (or lose) your wallet, the phone will buzz to let you know. More interestingly, the Woolet has a small buzzer built in that will notify you if you leave the house without your phone – a pretty useful feature if your Fitbit keeps making you leave the house. Finally Woolets can send out APB signals that ask other Woolet owners to report its location to you. For example, if you lose it in a crowded space other Woolet owners can pick up its signal and relay its location to you. (more…)

Square rolls out charge-back protection for merchants

VENTUREBEAT: Today, Square announced a new program for merchants that protects them when customers dispute purchases. When buyers contest a charge on their credit or debit card, that money is immediately put on hold. That means the merchant loses the money generated from the sale as well as the product or service it sold. Starting today, Square is giving merchants in the U.S. and Canada access to charge-back protection, which will cover the money being held in instances of fraud. Meaning, sellers won’t lose out on sales that are being contested. Square will cover expenses related to sales disputes up to $250 per month.
