The Signal 50: Mobile Banking and Super Monkey Ball 2 for iPhone Giveaway

Moneymoneymoney…. maaah-naaay…

Stefan and I run down a whole lot of mobile banking news in this week’s podcast. The new startup Square and their 3.5mm-based peripheral take up the bulk of our interest, but we explore SMS, NFC, QR, and straight-up application-based solutions and which works where. We also talk a bit about the HTC Touch.b, and how snazzy BREW looks on there.

As for giveaways, Super Monkey Ball 2 for the iPhone just came out, and we have an iTunes coupon code for one lucky U.S. listener. It’s got four-way multiplayer over Wi-Fi, along with the classic accelerometer-based puzzle gaming – just retweet using that button at the bottom, and you’ll be entered to win.

Hit the jump to get listening!

Music by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, as featured on Tap Tap Revenge for the iPhone.
