Rumors started to spread that Google might launch a online payment service comparable to PayPal called Google Wallet.

The NY Times has a good summary on the rumors and where they originated. An interesting theory on why Google might want to get into the online payment business appeared in a discussion thread on WebmasterWorld. Google has lots of experience managing small amounts of money through its adWords pay per click services.
