Go local with this new site for freshly farmed goods. Google isnt just IN your wallet, it IS your wallet. Fantasy footballers must check out this new streaming service and the latest from Samsung may be really thin, but its a huge deal.

CSA Group Deals

New group buying site Farmigo makes it easier to participate in Community Supported Agriculture by purchasing locally-grown, organic produce and meats directly from local farms. The service allows groups of people to sign up for farm-fresh goods purchased in bulk.

Through a quick, simple ZIP code search, shoppers can find the nearest producer and read all about the farms that support Farmigos direct-to-consumer sale approach. Each farm has its own web store, complete with harvest information to alert shoppers of whats in season and the next harvest. Farmers are also able to see whats in demand.

All transactions are between farmer and customer, with no middleman involved in the process. Subscription terms vary according to location, but are easily accessible before signing up. Check it out at

Cash, Check, or Google?

Google Wallet has finally arrived. Googles mobile payment system is available via Android app on Nexus S 4G, available on Sprint, and so far uses Citi MasterCard and the Google Prepaid Card.

Theres also a tap-to-pay feature, which lets users tap their phone instead of having to swipe a card. (This feature is available wherever you see the MasterCard symbol and the words PayPass. Soon you may even start seeing a Google Wallet logo, too.)

Those who use Google Offers will be glad to know that they can store offers automatically in their Wallet, for easy access on the go. Google Wallet also has a PIN feature to keep a users identity safe and secure. Google Wallet payments are currently accepted at select Sports Authority, Duane Reade, CVS Pharmacy, and Foot Locker stores, and is expected to be available at Macys, Walgreens, and Einstein Bros. Bagelss soon. You can search for locations nearby, too, by visiting Googles Where it Works section.
