Google Wants to Be the Next Big Thing in Your Wallet

Fool financial analysts Matt Koppenheffer and Patrick Morris got a chance to listen to Ariel Bardin, VP of product management and payments at Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL  ) , give a keynote speech at this year's Transact conference on the payments business, held in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In this segment from Where the Money Is, the guys give some of the key takeaways for them on Google's view on the mobile payments business. Patrick discusses how we have finally reached an inflection point where the much-discussed "big change" in mobile payments has finally arrived, while Matt takes a look at how Google can bring game-changing new ways to accept payment to even the smallest merchants.

    Google Chrome GW program acts like a frig gen virus. What a piece of junk software. I use chrome but there is one startup that is impossible to disable. Google Wallet. Disable it and Google set this extension to enable it self.

    What a piece of Sh@&t software.

    Google programmers have no idea how fu^#k up that is. With paypal they don't need or want to run an extension. GW but that little game of forcing your computer to run a program at starup is kid stuff and irresponsible. How many users would use GW if they came out and stated we will load your computer with a program at start up and you can not stop or disable it.
