The Future of e-commerce The future of e-commerce is mobile. It lives in tablets and smartphones. There shouldn’t be a retailer out there who doesn’t know this to be true. But a new study by the mobile services provider Zmags (Mobile and Tablet Ecommerce: Is Anyone Really Ready?) found that only one-third of the top U.S. online retailers are even optimally ready for mobile e-commerce.

The driving force behind the whole research was that if this effort could be properly channelized, humanity as a whole would benefit and thus was born reCAPTCHA. There is lot of indecipherable text in ancient literature tomes, old newspapers, satellite imagery, Google Street View, et al as far as machines are concerned. So if such texts could be given to the humans in the process of typing CAPTCHAs, a huge problem would be solved with no extra strain on resources! Google has rolled out a new API that directly asks users whether they are robots. Human users then can just check the box mentioning ‘I’m not a robot’, and gain access without actually solving any CAPTCHA. There’s more to this API than meets the eye.
