More than 500 million people will be using "contactless" payment systems within the next five years as growth surges by more than 50 percent, says a new report. Apple is the dominant provider - but don't forget Paypal.
Google Fiber is expanding its ultra-fast Internet and entertainment network in the Triangle, now taking service orders in the Brier Creek area of northwest Raleigh near Raleigh Durham International Airport.
The company said it conducts "rigorous analyses" that its pay practices are gender-blind and found "no gender pay gap" in 52 major job categories it analyzed last year. Google added that analysts who calculate suggested pay don't have access to employees' gender data.
Google Fiber may be available only in limited areas of the Triangle but its community reach is close to 500,000 "unique" participants and visitors, the company says in a report. Plus, 366 people have been helped to bridge the "digital divide."
Analysis: Google has evolved drastically over the past year. Not only have the productivity applications for business been rebranded and brought together with the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) portfolio under a cohesive business unit in Google Cloud and leadership under Senior Vice President Diane Greene, but the resulting business has substantially furthered its messaging as well. Here's the first of a two-part report.
Google Fiber is reaching out to assure Triangle customers - and potential ones - that the company is "here to stay in the Triangle." GF issued the statement Wednesday afternoon following a report of major changes within the company.

Google Fiber, which recently paused its nation-wide expansion plans, is adding new markets again. But this time it's through high-speed point-to-point service called Webpass. No word on RTP expansion at this point, but gigabit Internet could be coming to a building near you for $60 a month.
Analysis: Google is knitting together an array of media and technology assets to provide a unified view of the consumer at an individual level. In doing so, Google is borrowing a page from Facebook's people-based playbook.
