Starbucks Expands Mobile Payment Test to NYC and Long Island
 
 

Coffee drinkers will stand in line for a long time to get their favorite cup of java. Starbucks is where many coffee fans like to go and the company has announced that it has expended its mobile payment test areas to include a couple of the most populated areas around.

The test now covers New York City and Long Island. Users of the iPhone, iPod touch, and Blackberry smartphones can get the app and use it to pay for their drinks. The app is on the App Store for Apple devices and can be downloaded for Blackberry users by texting GO to 70845.

Once the app is installed, the user can put money on it using a credit card. When they go to get a coffee, the app makes a barcode that is scanned at the register and the money is deducted for the balance on the app to pay.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
