Briefly: Epson's wireless portable scanner, Yelp adds Bitcoin option
Epson announced this past week the introduction of its first portable document scanner, the <a href="" rel='nofollow'>WorkForce DS-40</a>. Enabling users to scan documents with a Wi-Fi connection directly to a PC, Mac or mobile device -- as well as offering one-touch scan-to-cloud capabilities -- the DS-40 offers full functionality while being small enough to carry in an average computer bag. The scanner can be powered by battery or USB source, and is able to scan a variety of original documents up to 8.5 by 36 inches. Featuring auto-sizing and text enhancement correction tools, the WorkForce DS-40 allows for integration into workplace infrastructures with the availability of a TWAIN driver, offering broad third-party software compatibility. The Epson WorkForce DS-40 is priced at $180, and is anticipated to be available this summer. <br><br />

<strong>Yelp adds attribute to denote companies that accept digital currency as payment</strong><br />
<br />
Yelp has introduced an <a href="" rel='nofollow'>update</a> that lets its users know whether a business accepts Bitcoin as payment. The new "Accepts Bitcoin" attribute is now included in their listing options, alongside other information such as whether a business offers delivery or is pet-friendly. According to Yelp, the new inclusion enables users to more easily find local businesses that accept digital currency, thereby offering it as a potential competitive advantage.<br />
