Firms that track shoppers via smartphones agree to code of conduct
Eight of the 10 leading location analytics companies have agreed to a new code of conduct in an effort led by U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer. Schumer began sounding the alarm this summer, saying consumers should know when retailers are using their smartphones to track their movements through a store. On Tuesday, Schumer told AP that the eight companies have agreed to a new code of conduct that includes signs posted in stores to alert shoppers that tracking is being done and instructions on how to opt out. "Today, location analytics companies have introduced a comprehensive code to ensure they have data protection standards in place to de-identify data, to provide consumers with effective choices to not be tracked and to explain to consumers the purposes for which data is being used," Jules Polonetsky, the forum's executive director, told AP.

US Court Rules Warrant Required for GPS Tracking of Vehicles
A U.S. appeals court has ruled that police must obtain a warrant prior to using a GPS device to track a vehicle, deciding on an unaddressed issue in an earlier Supreme Court order. The decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit on Tuesday is considered a victory by privacy groups as a number of courts in the country grapple with the legal and privacy implications of using mobile phone location information and GPS in investigations by law enforcement.

Diebold Pays $48 Million to Settle Bribery Charges
Diebold Inc. agreed to pay more than $48 million to settle dual probes into alleged Foreign Corrupt Practices Act violations in China, Indonesia and Russia, according to press releases from the Securities and Exchange Commission and Justice Department. The Ohio-based automated teller machine maker allegedly sent government officials on trips to Napa Valley, Disneyland, Las Vegas and other destinations, according to the SEC’s release. In one instance, Diebold allegedly paid for eight officials at a government-owned bank in China to go on a two-week trip to destinations including Paris and Rome. A Diebold spokesman said the settlement was an “important step” for the company moving forward. (Source wsj.com)

Do "chip-and-PIN" credit cards work in the U.S.?
If the cards were issued in the U.S., they will work here because point-of-sale terminals will read the magnetic stripe and ignore the embedded microchip. The same is true of cards issued overseas -- unless the issuer chooses to ignore the mag stripe, which is happening more frequently. Even though the default payment system in the country of issue may be to read the chip, a terminal or kiosk without that capability will usually default to reading the magnetic stripe. The same rule applies with chip-and-signature cards. Most credit cards with embedded chips issued in the U.S. are chip-and-signature, but a few credit unions are issuing chip-and-PIN as well, as you can see from this list of EMV cards available in the U.S . At this point, most chip cards issued here are produced for international travel, since most terminals in the U.S. don't yet have the capability to read embedded microchips at point of sale.

Aaron’s settles FTC computer spying charges in Florida
Rent-to-own retailer Aaron’s Inc. has agreed to settle Federal Trade Commission charges that it played a role in franchisees’ computer software installations that secretly monitored consumers, including taking webcam photos of them in their homes. Atlanta-based Aaron’s has about a dozen retail outlets in the Tampa-St. Petersburg area. FTC alleges Aaron’s franchisees used the software to track consumers’ locations and capture images through the computers’ webcams, including ones of adults engaged in intimate activities, according to a written statement. Franchisees also are accused of capturing computer users’ logins for email accounts and financial and social media sites. The FTC complaint contends Aaron’s knew about and allowed its franchisees to use the software and also gave franchisees instructions on how to install and use it. The proposed consent agreement prohibits Aaron’s from deceptively collecting information from people who rent computers, and requires the company to delete or destroy any information improperly gathered.

Craigslist makes turning food stamps into cash a SNAP
Food stamp recipients are turning the government handouts into quick cash with ads on Craigslist, despite efforts to stem fraud. Nearly 50 million Americans are on the food stamp program, which has exploded over the last five years, more than doubling the cost to taxpayers. The Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) cards are issued to needy citizens who qualify, and then replenished each month with buying power. Because the cards do not include a photo ID, a recipient who is looking to sell his or her benefits for cash can simply do so and then report them stolen or lost and be issued a replacement. They could also charge a buyer much more, and never report the card as missing, effectively transferring their entitlement benefits for cash. (Source foxnews.com)

SONY LAUNCHES 360 DEGREE HEMISPHERIC-VIEW
MINI DOME IP CAMERA

Five megapixel indoor/outdoor camera offers a circular area of view that helps eliminate blind spots and enhances situational awareness

CHICAGO (ASIS 2013, Booth No. 635) – Sony’s new 360 degree hemispheric-view dome IP camera (SNC-HM662) makes it possible for users to have five megapixel (MP), high-resolution video and a 360-degree view of an area with just one camera. Just announced at the ASIS 2013 security show, the SNC-HM662 is ideal for both indoor and outdoor environments such as retail outlets, campuses and commercial buildings. It helps users eliminate blind spots and enhance situational awareness.

The SNC-HM662 features a 360-degree panomorph lens and is certified as an ImmerVision Enables® solution. The ImmerVision technology generates clearer images and provides more pixels at the edge of a frame, as compared to traditional fisheye lenses. It also supports fast, responsive electronic pan/tilt/zoom (ePTZ) and 11 different viewing modes through the Sony Web viewer.

“As security needs have evolved, users expect an IP camera to provide usable video for multiple applications,” said Mark Collett, general manager of Sony Electronics’ Security Systems Division. “Sony has developed the SNC-HM662 for that very reason. The circular field of view and five megapixel resolution mean that the camera’s images can be used on their own or used to complement any type of surveillance system and help make it more functional.”

The SNC-HM662 corrects for the image distortion common with 360-degree lenses by de-warping the video with video management software (VMS), rather than at the camera level. This means higher video quality is maintained during the de-warping process, so more visual data is available for post-incident analysis. This is in contrast to 360-degree products that de-warp video at the camera level, which degrades image quality due to the camera’s processing limitations.

The SNC-HM662 also supports two-way audio with an optional microphone and speaker, power over Ethernet (PoE), and edge storage capabilities.

Sony’s SNC-HM662 security camera is expected to be available early in the first quarter of 2014. It will be supported by major VMS providers, including Aimetis Corp., DVTEL, INC., Envysion, Exacq Technologies, Genetec Inc., Milestone Systems, OnSSI, Salient Systems and Video Insight Inc.

A Look Ahead at 2014 - Augmented Reality

By Adam Creamer

The calendar may have just rolled over to October, but 2014 will be here before you know it. We decided to take a look at the current state of retail, and spot trends that will flourish in 2014. What we ended up with is a series of posts that will run through October, and maybe a couple in November. To kick off the series we will take a look at augmented reality. There is a lot to talk about for this topic, so we split it up into two posts.

Glasses
First up is Google Glass, the wearable device that does just about everything your smart phone can do without hands. In today’s world many people enter stores knowing exactly what they want, and the Glass device plays right into this. Using GPS (and possibly WiFi) the device knows when the wearer enters a store and pulls up their shopping list automatically, but it doesn’t stop there. The device also displays the layout of the store and automatically maps the shortest distance from item to item. Now I can keep going on and on about the capabilities of this device, but I figured I would let this video do the talking (things get interesting around 1:35):

So, what effect will this have on retail besides making shoppers more efficient? This is the device that stores with omni-channel strategies have been waiting for. Your omni-channel plan most likely consists of placing tablets throughout your store so people can shop online or check reviews easier. As the video showed, though, this device can recognize what different items are and checks them off of the persons list. If it can do this, why can’t it also pull up customer reviews and the “people who bought this also bought...” lists that are so vital to online sales. This device has the potential to be a great success, or a massive failure. Either way it will make 2014 an interesting year.

Online Shopping
As the Glass device brings online shopping benefits to stores, new software is bringing in-store benefits to the web. One program, for example, utilizes a computer’s webcam along with their own database to accurately measure a person’s body to ensure a perfect fit, something that is nearly impossible to do online. Another program allows users to upload a few images. Using these images the system not only suggests what sizes will fit best, but also makes the shopper the “model” on the website. This way they can see how things will look on them without the need to go in-store.

The effects of this type of software on retail are very similar to the effects of Google Glass. In a world where omni-channel strategies are taking hold, the goal is to make the in-store and online experience as similar as possible. Giving shoppers the assurance that what they buy online will actually fit (not to mention the ability to see what it looks like on) is huge, and will be a big step forward for retail. As online shopping continues to grow 2014 will be the year where augmented reality helps many retailers step up their game.

When anyone goes for an interview you’ve got to play to win. You should not allow: any outside variable, any future promotion thoughts or promises, your guilt feelings towards your current employer or boss, your preconceived opinions of the possible future employer, or any miss-step in the process on the part of the future employer disrupt or impact your performance. All interviews have long range implications on your career. The executives interviewing you are part of a community and you'll run into them again at another company. So if you do get involved and go for an interview, commit yourself all the way and play to win. It doesn’t mean you’ve got to take the job. It just means you have to perform at 100%.
