U.S. Stocks Aim to Push Technology Sector to New Levels: NXT-ID, Inc, Pandora, Facebook, Plug Power, Yahoo!
CORAL SPRINGS, Florida, January 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Market news updates for leading edge tech & biometrics companies in the news: NXT-ID, Inc. (OTCQB: NXTD), Pandora Media Inc. (NYSE: P), Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ: FB), Plug Power (NASDAQ: PLUG) and Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ: YHOO)
NXT-ID, Inc. (OTCQB: NXTD), a biometrics company focused on the growing mobile commerce market, revealed its "Checkout with Wocket(TM)" initiative which utilizes patent-pending dynamic pairing technology (DPT) to prevent credit card fraud. The initiative secures all payment card information before, during and after transactions without changing the existing current payment infrastructure. "2013 was clearly the 'Year of Personal Data Breach.' Target (NYSE: TGT) capped off the year with over 40 million credit and debit card account numbers lost to hackers by malware at point of sale terminals," says David Tunnell, CTO of NXT-ID. "Our dynamic pairing technology is built upon the existing systems retailers use today, but with the Wocket(TM) smart wallet, we can provide a dynamic pairing number for any account, not just a single 'card.'"

NXT-ID believes the problem behind credit card fraud is not the security of the server housing the card numbers but rather, whether or not that data is useful to a hacker. The "Checkout with Wocket(TM)" initiative is built upon the simple principle of making that data useless in the case of a data breach. With this technology, if someone gained access to a credit card number used with a Wocket(TM) smart wallet, it would not work if sold or used outside of the Wocket(TM) itself, rendering it completely useless to a hacker.

(NYSE: P) continued to climb Tuesday (01/07/2014) as it ticked upward 3% and reached north of $33.50 in midday trading after it announced on Monday that it would start to release advertising solutions in cars later this month.
