Paypal launches a new way to pay for things easily and quickly using a check-process on your smartphone or tablet. Go to the restaurant, launch check in on your paypal app, it launches the restaurant's menu, you click on the app to order, the server comes with the food, you leave, you've already paid. This removes 66% of the waiters effort. Go to a cafe, check-in on paypal, they know you want a cappuccino, you get it quickly and leave, no cash, no confirmation, no anything. You park your car, check in on paypal, that's it, you're paying for your car park until you check-out, take the car and leave.

carzapp provides a new cheaper mobile Internet connected locking system, so you can open your car using any smartphone if they give you the authorization for it, you can then add your car to the car sharing network and earn up to $2000 per month (if you have a cool car that many people want to use). They take care of 100% of the insurance for when your car is used by a user. You can choose the price per hour, price per day, you can pick and choose which people or which kind of people can use it (how verified each user is, I guess). Some regions can add up to thousands of electric cars on that car sharing network. The price can be as low as $4 per hour, you can park it based on where the owner wants to park it, or it can also happen that you can just park it wherever you want.
