uhm they are not. The text is just a link to a site that uses stripe to collect your CC data.

I wonder how they are able to pay for 3rd party transactions with Stripe? Charging the customer's credit card with Stripe then paying with your own payment method incurs a transaction fee and potentially chargebacks

Yes I wonder too. They're storing the card in Stripe. But then they're paying the Pizza joint for the Pizza (who probably doesn't have a Stripe account) So they're charging your card against their Stripe account and then I assume using their own cards to charge for the Pizza manually. It seems like that'll have some scale challenges.

(Disclaimer: I work at Spreedly where we see a lot of these cross merchant/PCI compliant services launching.

I'm guessing they just charge enough mark-up to the customer to cover transaction fees and chargeback risk.

Open sourced as well: https://github.com/shenfeng/rssminer

I also think this is the most similar looking Google reader replacement out there and that's a good thing! (for me). I just want a non-opinionated rss reader. No messing with content or discovery/recommendation. Just good ol rss reader for many feeds.

real "crypto_key" is pretty widespread as well :(

> Do people need to be told everything?

No. But I like reading about personal experiences and the little details.

Definitely. Everyone can pretty much give opinions on what's pretty and what's not if you ask them. Or even if you don't ask them. This is why designers have to deal with relatively a lot more inputs, politics and decision making deadlocks.

To put it simply, my mom will not be able to tell you whether your codes are scalable but she can definitely tell you why she prefers pink as opposed to white on those toggle buttons (or why the dropdown animation is confusing).

Why should it be the responsibility of the majority to ask for clarification when you come off as an arrogant poster in the first place? If you don't want to be misunderstood, rephrase your wordings.

Now you find yourself having to explain your position instead of getting an intelligent discourse out of the corresponding thread.

In this instance, I for one prefer FB's app center to that Apple page.

I won't argue about design taste. :)

I'm actually using iron worker for some of my projects. They are awesome :)

But you will still need python/php/etc to process the file upload, as shown in the linked article itself.

sometimes I wonder why people post comment like this. I mean does every articles or point of view posted here has to be 100% politically correct, addressed all the little semantic issues and cover all possible counter-arguments?

it's called opinion for a reason. people do think out loud. discuss or dissect it. don't belittle it with snark.

seriously cool. looks like chat is the new 'to-do list' and I mean that in a good way. if anything it is more fun and interactive to build.

i also did something similar except the chat room generation is automatic and based on your location. Basically http://getyoucoffee.com/ will decide which chat room you are assigned to based on your location. it's pretty huge in cities with subways.

Imagine how useful a location-based video chat site would be for online speed dating.

-----


We're thinking about adding popular (trending) topics and indeed position based topics. But these features could wait for the beta launch!

It's a great idea though, thanks for sharing!
