MasterCard Partners With CSI For Mobile Payments App On Android, iOS, and BlackBerry

In a strange move, MasterCard has gone on to partner with CSI for their own mobile payments app. The "tap to pay" convenience of mobile payments is expected to really expand next year, with competing services coming from the Google Walletservice, Visa, and ISIS.

The biggest news this morning, of course, is that Osama bin Laden is dead, killed in a raid by the US Military.

Also, users that had manually updated their Nook Color found their e-reader bricked after the 1.2 update was installed. No word yet on a fix, just that "engineers are investigating the issue".

RIM’s BlackBerry 7 a simple OS 6.1 rebadge?

RIM may be closer to releasing BlackBerry 7, its new mobile OS, sooner than we thought, though it's not quite the software revolution we were hoping for. According to CrackBerry's sources, RIM intends to launch BlackBerry 6 at its BlackBerry World 2011 event next week; however, rather than being the QNX-based smartphone platform rumored before, it's expected to be a more straightforward rebrand of what has, until now, been known as BlackBerry 6.1.
