Oracle offers to buy Sun Microsystems; Comscore statistics show that online banking usage is still growing in Europe and the US; new launches and suppliers for European dark pools; and Bank of America, MasterCard, Visa, Obopay, Google and Walmart all get embroiled in an e-payments patent dispute. It's all in this week's news review podcast.
The 20-minute programme, incorporating content running from Wednesday to Wednesday, will be available for download every Thursday afternoon through to the end of April in an initial 8 week trial period to gauge interest and feedback from among the Finextra readership.
The programme is designed to give you the key stories and trends of the week in a format you can easily digest while stuck behind the wheel in motorway traffic, delayed in an airport waiting lounge, or crammed into a standing-room-only train carriage.
