Cool Gadget – Whooz!

Do you have 2 iDevices and 6 cords? 4 iDevices and no cords? How many times have you left a cord somewhere because you thought it wasn’t yours or taken a cord because you thought it was. In the beginning white cords were cool but now there are a million bazillion of them and we got issues.

At $10/pack Whooz is a simple, fun, and affordable solution to this problem. Each pack comes with four sheets of removable vinyl labels with each sheet sporting a different look. One sheet includes labels to cover one adapter, the ends of one usb cable and one set of earphones. You can combine the labels in fun ways to create your own look or keep it simple.

Cool Gadget: Introducing…. PAYPAL HERE

The reader itself, like Square, plugs into a phone or tablet’s headphone jack. Created by the industrial-design gods at Fuseproject, it’s a triangle with a fold-down wing that’s designed to brace the reader so it doesn’t tumble off. It encrypts the card data before transmitting it to the mobile device;Square’s original reader was notoriously unencrypted, but the company started shipping an encrypted version last month.

Compared to Square, PayPal Here has a bunch more features. If you don’t have your reader, you can snap a photo of a card to accept it. It tracks cash and check payments as well as cards, and has a feature for issuing invoices. PayPal charges a slightly lower transaction fee — a flat 2.7% vs. Square’s 2.75% — and plays up its debit card, with a 1% cashback feature that reduces the effective fee to 1.7%.
