In Amazon Wallet you can add a gift or loyalty card by scanning the barcode or typing in the account number. Taking a picture of both sides of the card also serves as a visual reference and gives you a digital copy so you can leave the plastic behind.
While both Amazon Wallet and Google Wallet act as data storage for various gift and loyalty cards, Google Wallet’s solution is currently more powerful. When you add a supported rewards service, Google’s servers talk to the account in the cloud and can provide real-time account information.
Well known Russian leaker WZOR has made a number of claims regarding Windows 9 and Windows 8.1 Update 2 (or Windows 8.2). According to WZor, Windows 8.2 might be released later this year possibly in the Autumn. Windows 8.2 is likely to be very similar to the Spring Update (Windows 8.1 Update) and may be called Windows 8.1 Update 2 (Autumn Update). This is still being debated internally at Microsoft. Part of the Autumn Update will include the Start Menu shown at Build and possibly “windowed” Metro apps.
Windows 9 is likely to contain a revamped Metro interface. The new start menu and windowed Metro apps will also be included in this update. In the classic form the start menu will be available on devices without a touchscreen and on server systems. On systems with a touchscreen, the start button should be a different concept. Microsoft is considering making a free version of Windows 9 but a final decision has not been made on this issue.
In addition to these Microsoft is working on Windows Cloud. Myce reports:
According to WZOR there is a group working on a prototype operating system where the client software will be free to download and additional functionality requires a subscription. The functionality to download the OS resides in the system’s BIOS. Once installed Windows Cloud requires an internet connection for full functionality. In offline mode the OS would be similar to Microsoft’s budget operating system, Windows Starter.
While these rumors are most likely accurate, keep in mind plans may change in the coming months. It appears nothing is set in stone quite yet.
