New Prepaid Mobile Broadband Service From Walmart

Walmart and TruConnect launched a prepaid mobile broadband service that lets you pay for the amount of data you use, rather than monthly. Essentially, you don’t have to pay $40 every month regardless if you used all your data. You just pay for the data you used. The service is called Internet To Go, and it uses Sprint’s 3G wireless network. Its a smart option if you only use your device to check email and do sporadic connections.

Wal Mart Acquires Kosmix For Social Initiatives

In a time of buyouts, Wal-Mart is buying Kosmix, a social media company that is based in the heart of silicon valley, Mountain View, California.

I believe this is a necessary move for Wal-Mart, a corporation that now has physical stores in 15 countries and e-commerce businesses in nine countries.
