Amazon launched its payment system that allows its customers to shop across the web easily by simply entering a phrase and a PIN, the system called PayPhrase. Just like PayPal, users can both send and receive money from their PayPhrase account. I have signed up for an account, but as I live outside the U.S. its full functionality still disabled. I hope Amazon soon enable the system for international users and start sending referral bonuses to its international affiliates using this new system instead of the traditional check (read: suck) method. Of course the system should also enable users to withdraw the money to their bank account just like PayPal. When Amazon?
Old technology won’t attract new customers unless there is something about it. And the most simple thing to make it stays attractive is a significant price cut. That’s what Amazon did for its old 6″ reader aka Kindle 2. The new price of Kindle 2 now only $299, it means $60 off compare to its previous price. So do you want to wait Kindle DX until Amazon do same thing for it before buying it? May be yes may be not.
