Google was sued by PayPal over claims it misappropriated trade secrets from PayPal’s mobile payment business. Osama Bedier, a former PayPal executive now at Google, stole PayPal’s confidential information, the company said in the lawsuit filed yesterday in state court in San Jose, California. Stephanie Tilenius, another ex-PayPal executive now at Google, violated contractual obligations by recruiting Bedier, PayPal said.
The future of e-commerce is going to feel a lot like walking into a store 50 years ago, according to a Google executive. Osama Bedier, vice president of payments at Google, told an audience at the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco that e-commerce is about to go through a radical transition. And the more online retail changes, the more it will feel like shopping at your local corner store.
