bluepulseblog: PayPal largely misses the point with mobile payment launch

Seems like PayPal largely missed the point with the launch of its mobile payment service, PayPal Mobile. For starters, it doesn't appear to let you pay for mobile content, such as tracks or games; and it currently works only for US, CA and UK customers of PayPal.

Meanwhile, if I have to key in an SMS, take a call from an IVR system and key in a PayPal PIN number when it's time to pay my restaurant bill, I might just stick to paying with my ole crusty Visa card. At least then the waitperson can see right then and there how big a tip I've left them...
