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.

So ultimately, Edubuntu includes more programs that are information-heavy, while UberStudent includes more tools that can aid students in their studies but doesn’t directly give them any sort of information.

Zotac Nvidia Jetson TK1 review

The Jetson TK1, Nvidia’s first development board to be marketed at the general public, has taken a circuitous route to our shores. Unveiled at the company’s Graphics Technology Conference earlier this year, the board launched in the US at a headline-grabbing price of $192 but its international release was hampered by export regulations. Zotac, already an Nvidia partner for its graphics hardware, volunteered to sort things out and has partnered with Maplin to bring the board to the UK. In doing so, however, the price has become a little muddled. $192 – a clever dollar per GPU core – has become £199.99. Compared to Maplin’s other single-board computer, the sub-£30 Raspberry Pi, it’s a high-end item that could find itself priced out of the reach of the company’s usual customers. Read more
