  1. Does $15 Change Your Mind? Brian Lee Starts to Woo ShoeDazzle Customers Back

    Last week, we wrote about former ShoeDazzle CEO Bill Strauss and his strange decision to no longer allow people like me to pay his company money. It was a gutsy move -- to put it euphemistically -- in the insanely crowded shoes-in-a-box market, and one that seems to have cost Strauss his job. It may cost ShoeDazzle the market lead if returning CEO and founder Brian Lee can't right the ship.

    After nearly five years of hoarding and refining nearly a petabyte worth of places data, Los Angeles-based big data startup Factual has been slowly coming out of its shell over the last 12 months.

And it has begun to reveal several of its more prominent clients, including Apple, Facebook, Foursquare, and Yelp.

  4. A New Twist in the Three-Way Payment Wars: Braintree Finally Offers Instant Underwriting

    In the battle to kill PayPal, upstart Braintree has had a few key advantages. It prides itself on being people driven -- not having computer-dominated customer service and fraud detection. That means it avoids embarrassing cases of accounts being wrongly closed during a company's busiest moment.
