Let's welcome the presence of NFC technology

Mobile Payment (NFC Technology)- If we look at the history of payment transactions, beginning first before any electronic conveniences one should take the money first to the bank by lining up at the counter so they should take the money to use for a certain period of time considering a sizable effort to take some money. With the automated teller machines (ATMs), everywhere attempt to take the money be light enough so a person taking money for short periods. In addition, holders of ATM reduces the risk of money from the crime of theft / robbery / etc because the money taken is usually less when compared with taking money at the bank counter.

Google Nexus S-with NFC technology
Google Nexus S is the second design of Google smartphone after the Nexus One.  This phone has been equipped with NFC chips.

With the development of information and communication technology (ICT), comes a new electronic payment instruments that became popular in Indonesia, such as credit cards and debit cards. Both types of payment using smart card payment terminals are rubbed into the stores when paying. Smart card to replace the physical money that is usually stored on a smart card wallet so that users can avoid the crime and also get the convenience of users, ie do not need to take the money into a bank or ATM and store in a wallet.

Of course, smart card payment system must have a security system that ensures money is not taken by the user who is not entitled to and also there was no immediate claim payments that never made the user. Without the guarantee of security systems in smart card payment system, users will not be interested to use it.

At present, in addition to purses, must carry a cell phone in travel. It gives ideas for innovators to combine wallet and mobile phone. There have been innovative from a mobile service provider to make payments using SMS and mobile web. A consortium of giant mobile phone manufacturer in the world finally work together to create new products to combine with the mobile with wallet is called Near Field Communications (NFC).

Actually, the NFC is the development of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) card technology. RFID has the same form and function like an ATM card, the difference is RFID cards do not need to be polished (contactless) thus RFID cards do not need to be removed from the wallet in the process of payment, users only need to bring his wallet to a payment terminal or called reader. In Indonesia, RFID cards are widely used, for example: e-Toll for automatic payment of toll gates, bracelets (RFID tags, not the shape of the card) is used instead of tickets at amusement parks.

NFC technology on mobile phones a step further than the RFID technology, where NFC chip embedded in mobile phones that can act as an RFID card and also as a reader at once with a short range radius (less than 10 cm). NFC technology on mobile phones can truly replace the wallet in which to spend money and also received money from and to fellow NFC users. In addition to payment, NFC technology can be used as a replacement ID card, driver's license, student card, etc., time card, and others.

Starting in 2011 planned to be come a variety of products leading mobile phone equipped with NFC technology. The first mobile product with NFC technology is already marketed in Europe and America is the Samsung Nexus S, dilengkai NFC controller chip by NXP (Philips), namely PN544. Philips is a leading manufacturer of RFID cards. Samsung Nexus S uses the Android operating system Gingerbread version supported by Google. Google itself has prepared a variety of applications for NFC technology on mobile phones.

School of Electrical Engineering & Informatics, Bandung Institute of Technology, is active in conducting research to develop Transaction System Using Mobile Phone and NFC Technology with a grant from the Incentive Program, Ministry of Research and Technology. NFC Research Group had been formed. The purpose of this research is to produce a transaction system with NFC technology on mobile phones for micro payment (payment with a small amount, for example: public transportation, shop, canteen, etc.) and macropayment (payments with a larger number, for example: supermarket, mini market, restaurant , various shops, etc.).

This transaction system must be very safe for users, sellers, and users of the financial industry so that money can not be reduced / increased improperly; sellers get the money that should; and the financial industry does not lose money and not have to pay an undue. Let's welcome the presence of NFC technology for shared prosperity. News Article Source : Kompasiana

Google CEO Foreclosed by Larry Page

Today is a very historic day for the biggest companies in the search engines (search engines) in the world, Google, since Google officially announced that it will soon replace Larry Page Eric Schmidt as chief executive officer (CEO). Schmidt then will take the role as executive chairman and focus on transactions, partnerships, customers, and the broader business relationships. He also will continue to act as adviser to Page and other Google founder, Sergey Brin.

According to Schmidt, Google's official blog, Page is now leading the product development and technology strategy began on April 4, 2011 will take over day-to-day operation of Google as the CEO of Google. Schmidt believes, along with Brin, Page will make Google better in the coming years.

Page himself said that Schmidt has done a fantastic job for Google. Google's results achieved so far is the result of hard work and it is clear evidence of his role in bringing Google. Still according to Page, no other CEO in the world are so deeply involved in product development while doing business with a very bright, as does Schmidt.

"Eric is a great leader and I have learned from him. His advice will be very valuable to me because I started in a new role. Google still has a tremendous opportunity. We're just at the beginning and I can not wait to get started," he said.

Keep in mind that Google also recently announced their financial statements, which are generally quite good. In the fourth quarter of 2010 Google earned 8.44 billion U.S. dollars, up 26 percent from the fourth quarter of 2009. Google-owned sites revenue amounted to 5.67 billion U.S. dollars, equivalent to 67 percent of all Google's revenue.

This amount represents an increase of 28 percent from the fourth quarter of 2009. Revenue from collaboration sites or Google Adsense Network Beban through a very popular program that amounted to 2.50 billion U.S. dollars, equivalent to 30 percent of all Google's revenue. This number is up 22 percent than the fourth quarter of 2009.

What does this change?

Shift the position of CEO is probably in response to increasingly fast run up in the Internet world. Although the power of Google's search engine is not disturbed, site most visitors in the year 2010 is up.

Search terms up also ranked first in the search terms most used in 2010. Even as of January 15, 2011 Facebok retains its power as a site with a visitor's most lots in the U.S., which is a contributor to Google's 50 percent more revenue in the fourth quarter of 2010.

This may be a separate concerns for Google because up within two years developed very good. Additionally, I predict, Page with the spirit of his youth might be able to match up owners are also still very young, Mark Zuckerberg, and saw the Internet as well as products to be produced from glasses to young people. This is important because most Internet users today, especially Facebook, are young people. Maybe Larry will soon release a social media site owned by Google itself or purchase of social media sites that already exist to match up.

Wait what we deserve Page steps to stem the progress of up and compete in the field of social media. However, that's certainly not to be done Page later. We know, in the smart phone operating systems (smartphones) and tablets, Google has been getting ready to launch Ice Cream and Honey Comb. This will increasingly assert Android smart phone operating system as the largest in the U.S. and the world in 2013.
