http://www.idealo.co.uk/blog/4128-card-fee-cap-consumers-could-enjoy-lower-prices-from-december/
An EU ruling has decided that from 9th December 2015, fees paid by retailers when shoppers make purchases with a credit or debit card will be capped.

In 2014, 720,000 smartwatches kitted out with Google’s Android Wear operating system were sold, in comparison to 1.2 billion smartphones sales. The growing array of smartwatches on the market is awaking the interest of consumers, and no ...
