As PayPal split looms, eBay plans to think small

EBay seeks to reinvigorate its marketplaces business as split with PayPal looms

EBay plans to grow by thinking small as it prepares for life apart from PayPal.

The company says it is focusing on getting more people, as well as small- to mid-size businesses, to buy and sell items on its popular online marketplace.

The effort comes as it attempts to address investor concerns about how it will fare later this year after it spins off its PayPal payments division, which has long been EBay's fastest-growing segment.

When you thought you heard it all and this time it's not thailand

PayPal Wants You to Inject Your Username and Eat Your Password

Biometric identification systems, like fingerprints and eye scans, are old hat. Try this on –or in– for size: a PayPal executive who works with engineers and developers to find and test new technologies, now says that embeddable, injectable, and ingestible devices are the next wave in identification for mobile payments and other sensitive online interactions.

In a presentation called Kill all Passwords that he’s recently started giving at various tech conferences in the U.S. and Europe, PayPal’s global head of developer evangelism Jonathan Leblanc argued that technology has taken a huge leap forward to “true integration with the human body.”

Leblanc said that identification of people will shift from “antiquated” external body methods like fingerprints, toward internal body functions like heartbeat and vein recognition, where embedded and ingestible devices will allow “natural body identification.”

These devices include brain implants and attachable computers, which “put users in charge of their own security,” he said. Ingestible devices could be powered by stomach acid, which will run their batteries, he added.
