Moneybookers To Become Skrill

Moneybookers To Become Skrill - Moneybookers is one of the leading electronic wallets and a popular payment option in the online casino industry. It is in the process of re-branding and will don a new avatar named Skrill. The philosophy is simple. According to Moneybookers everything changes and they say "We simply thought it was time".

Skrill is short for "skrilla", which is already a commonly used slang word for money or "dough". However, Moneybookers is endowing it with much more than that. Skrill will be a safe and innovative way for consumers to pay for their online goods. It will give them flexibility, choice, reliability, economy, convenience and peace of mind. There are big plans for Skrill but these changes will not happen overnight. In fact Moneybookers has scheduled the changeover for the end of 2011. However, the existing Moneybookers customers will be the first to upgrade to Skrill when it goes live.

Moneybookers has outlined some of the "massively enhanced payment facilities" that Skrill will offer. Consumers will be able to send payments to anyone without revealing their financial details. There will be no need to repeatedly enter card numbers, expiry dates and other endless details. Skrill will store these details in a secure manner without sharing them with anyone. Skrill will operate on the understanding that one size does not fit all. It will offer more than just a portfolio of products. There will be methodologies to integrate services or offer fully tailored solutions that will cater to the global stage. All this will be provided with full technical support, proven anti-fraud measures and reliable customer service. Like Moneybookers Skrill will come with the protection of United Kingdom and European Union law and regulation from the Financial Services Authority.

Juian Artope, Moneybookers' head of marketing and public relations, spoke about the re-branding in an interview to eGaming Review. He said, "We felt we needed a new name to better characterize the business, as well as differentiate ourselves in a crowded marketplace and that name is Skrill. It's short, easy-to-use and translates well internationally. Customers and merchants alike have all told us how much they like it during our extensive research and consultation phase." The re-branding is being done under the guidance of the renowned agency The Brand Union, which has worked with the likes of Audi, Vodafone, Barclays, the Premier League and Unilever.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
