USPS & eBay team up

Filed under
Misc

The U.S. Postal Service and Internet auction site eBay have teamed up to offer a co-branded Priority Mail shipping service. Special boxes with a flat rate of $7.70, regardless of weight or destination, can be used by those who buy or sell items through the eBay Web site, the firms said on Monday. The boxes come in different shapes and sizes and carry logos of both USPS and eBay.

The service will launch on Thursday, the first day of the eBay Live conference scheduled for San Jose, Calif. The three-day conference is an annual feature organized by eBay to familiarize its new customers with online auctioneering rules. The Post Office launched the flat-rate boxes during last year's holiday season.

Here are our initial Dota 2 benchmarks with Vulkan as well as OpenGL for reference when using the latest Linux graphics drivers on Ubuntu. Read more

Why Hyperledger wants to be the ‘Linux of blockchain’

Blockchain technology offers many different benefits to enterprise developers — but there’s no cross-industry open standard for how to develop it. That makes it difficult for vendors and CIO customers to place their bets and begin building it into their technology architecture. Hyperledger, a Linux Foundation project to produce a standard open-source blockchain, wants to solve that problem, and it just got an executive director, Brian Behlendorf, to help it on its way. He founded the Apache Software Foundation, was previously on the board of the Mozilla Foundation and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and managed tech VC firm Mithril Capital Management. Read more
