    hey I just googled it, thank you for bringing that to my attention. As more banks adopt this feature I don't understand why.

    it seemed very coincidental that Ebay refused to spinoff Paypal, but a few months later went in another direction. I know the court dates were already set, but dropping the fight and this happening now, it may be possible other conversations are going on in the RDC, mobile payments world. studies now show that there is no more line between online and mobile purchasing, The one thing that makes me doubt myself about this, is Visa possibly selling there stake in Monitise (Monif) a very similar company and partner of Mitek. Thoughts?

    Ebay and Paypal will always have a working relationship regardless of split, however as Paypal looks for more customers, does a Mitek PayPal synergy make sense? I can see faster transfers, check payments from mobile to other PayPal users etc. Paypal is already using their technology, i do not know how much they would save in royalties or licensing fees, but I can see PayPal getting a boost from Mitek's existing relationships with major Financial institutions. Thoughts?

    I do believe Paypal utilizes Mitek products, now that it is confirmed that there will be a split of Ebay/Paypal, what is the likelihood of a Mitek acquisition by Paypal? I base this question on listening to interviews on Bloomberg radio earlier this week with former founders of Paypal AKA Paypal Mafia, in this interview they mention that Paypal is behind the curve in innovation and have a lot of catching up to do with their competitors. I was thinking that Mitek dropped the litigation issues to make themselves to be a more attractive acquisition target, or as they stated litigation expenses. Any thoughts?
