Walmart

Walmart customers have always complained about the huge line-ups and limited number of cashiers. In consequence of that, Walmart has decided to try letting you do their dirty work, by letting you checkout their goods. They have started a pilot program called ‘Scan & Go’, running in supercenter Rogers, AR. If you ever end up visiting there, Walmart will give you up to $100 for trying the new iPhone app. Finally, whether you save them millions of dollars in letting cashiers become extinct, or continue waiting in those long line-ups, you’ll always know that they prefer iPhone over Android users shopping at their stores. *Side note: This is our hundredth post :p

Nokia Lumia 820, AKA Nokia Arrow, photos leaked

Nokia Lumia 820 (Arrow)

It seems like just as you buy your new smartphone, you hear that an even better one is just being released soon. This might be the case here today, as photos of the Nokia Arrow (Nokia Lumia 820) are released from a Chinese website. However, one of the funny things about these images are that, on the bottom right corner it claims the phone only has 335 MB of RAM. This is probably due to it being a prototype, we hope. One thing we do know though, is that it will most likely be running Windows 8 (shock).
