PayPal’s VP of platform, mobile and new ventures, Osama Bedier, is dishing on some good news for Android developers. PayPal’s Mobile Payments Library is now available for Android.

As the business of mobile commerce continues to boom with no signs of retreat, the expansion of PayPal’s Mobile Payments Library comes as no surprise. With greater demand, PayPal naturally wants to provide as many vendors as possible with the ability to add checkout functionality for donations, personal payments, and physical goods and services sold through apps on the Android phone without having to worry about keeping customers’ personal financial information secure.

We recently announced the open beta of our Mobile Payments Library for the iPhone and the developer community is already putting it to good use.

In addition to the newfound Android territory for PayPal, the digital commerce solutions provider also rolled out the PayPal X Toolkit for Google App Engine (GAE). What is it? According to PayPal, it’s a platform for developing and running Web applications and services on Google Cloud. Developers can then “easily and securely” incorporate payments in their applications and services built on GAE platform.

For more on the exciting developments from PayPal, be sure to mosey on over to the official PayPal Blog for all the gory details.

    A practical observation on the risks of stupidity was made by the German General Kurt von Hammerstein-Equord in “Truppenführung”, 1933: “I divide my officers into four classes; the clever, the lazy, the industrious, and the stupid. Each officer possesses at least two of these qualities. Those who are clever and industrious are fitted for the highest staff appointments. Use can be made of those who are stupid and lazy. The man who is clever and lazy however is for the very highest command; he has the temperament and nerves to deal with all situations. But whoever is stupid and industrious is a menace and must be removed immediately!”

    Surely, our Stanford trained and Bain & Co matured fool, “Noise” Donahoe, falls into this last group, and should be “removed immediately”, before he can actually complete the total destruction of the eBay Marketplace—although I suspect that by now the patient has been mortally wounded by this quack’s clearly insane policies and incompetent management.

    And for anyone interested in eBay’s deviousness generally, and in particular eBay’s demonstrable and deliberate criminal facilitation of the rampant shill bidding fraud being perpetrated by many unscrupulous professional sellers on buyers, particularly on nominal-start auctions, an introduction thereto (along with some PayPal horror stories thrown in for good measure) can be found at

    Did someone mention eBay/PayPal?

    Draft Media Release—Confidential

    It is with great sadness that “Noise” Donahoe (aka “Peter Principle”), eBay’s Chief Headless Turkey, announces the probable demise of eBay’s most ugly daughter, PayPal. PayPal is about to be stricken by a particularly virulent strain of Visa+CyberSource, accompanied by insurmountable financial institutions complications and merchant dissatisfaction. PayPal’s health may therefore be expected to deteriorate and, if ultimately not completely incapacitated, will most likely be eventually confined to what little there is by then left of the Donahoe-devastated eBay Marketplaces. There is no cure this condition, and the “eBafia Don” is particularly saddened by the inevitable presumption that it is unlikely that PayPal will be able to continue to underpin eBay’s bottom line in the future.
