Device: Ingenico Move/5000
Goal: Remove firmware/bootloader, add plain Linux distro
Some time ago I've found on the street devastated payment terminal. It was obviously stolen. I managed to fix it up and stuff, and it seems that it works (or at least could if I replace screen power pin). After some searching around I didn't found anyone who could be it's owner so I ve put it in the drawer.
Recently I've bought more tools and stuff.
I'm ready and really curious if it's possible to remove old firmware from this payment terminal?
I wish I could install there arch or another clean linux distro. I could use it as portable printer (because it have small) and I could at the same time be connected to the internet.
Do you think that's possible?
I couldn't find any real documentation for these devices. It's "Ingenico Move/5000".
Is there anybody who worked with that kind of devices/ know anything about it? Maybe you've got some sources or anything else?
I could use any help
Edit: Finally, I've just repaired main screen and everythings seem to work. The only issue is that now it says "unathorised" on the main screen and it's glowing red. I don't really care about that, because I want to get rid of all software inside, but still, it can be usefull.
It happened in Switzerland back in 2018 and the business got free 7k and no legal consequences because of bankruptcy.
the other day my girlfriend thinks she paid for something by tapping her card on the merchants ipad device. the only way i can see this being possible is:
if the payment terminal was concealed on the other side of the ipad so she was actually just tapping on that or..
a merchants ipad device can now accept payment through the cards NFC chip which is managed through software on the device rather than an external piece of hardware (like square terminals). and presumably if this is the case a customer could use their iphone to make payment (rather than with card) so that are made device to device
I was hired as a FE developer by this project (won't disclose which one, some Defi/NFT platform) a couple months ago on a contractor basis. Small team (~17-18 people, only half were devs), remote work - all communication going through their Discord server.
One thing I noticed quite quickly is that they were getting rid of people VERY easily (~1 dev/week). They were justifying it by saying they wanted to downsize etc... Still it wasn't hard to understand I would not stay very long there.
Last week, as I opened up Discord in the morning, I saw I wasn't in their server anymore. I understood it must mean they had terminated my contract (some of the team is located around Asia, hence why it would happen while I was asleep), but what I found odd is that I received NO message from anyone from the team.
I contacted the head of HR (who's in the same timezone as me), who told me it all happened while he was asleep and would "investigate". It's been a week and I haven't heard from him, despite contacting him almost every day this past week.
But regardless of the total lack of respect they have shown, my main problem here is that they have not paid me for the final week of work I did. It is stated in my contract that upon termination I should receive the pay accrued up to the day of termination, but they have not done it.
Also, another dev got terminated in the meantime and has told me he is also missing payment (on top of not having received any message regarding his termination either). We though of telling our story on Twitter (They are a tokenized platform and this sort of bad reputation could potentially harm them financially), but I'd rather solve this privately tbh.
Has anyone been in a similar situation and has any advice? The legal route seems to be the most viable option (as they are essentially breaching my contract) but it's a lot of effort.
We currently take card payments over the phone under PCI SAQ C-VT. Namely we're using Barclaycard ePDQ's virtual terminal through a web browser.
The web browser runs on a dedicated locked down PC, which is on an isolated VLAN separated from all our other systems. When a member of staff takes a card payment over the phone, they physically go to that PC and enter the data directly into the webpage to process the payment.
Due to growth, the question is being asked whether the users can instead access the virtual terminal web page from their own PCs at their own desks.
I understand this would essentially put our entire LAN under scope of PCI compliance, meaning we'd come under a different SAQ (probably SAQ C?), and probably require pen testing, network scans etc. - essentially additional cost and complexity?
I'm currently doing the reading, but wanted to put the feelers out too whether anyone had any suggestions / guidance? I've thought about using virtualisation on the user's PCs. for example Windows Sandbox, but what I'm reading is that ultimately if the keystrokes to enter the card data are on the user's LAN PC, it's in scope as a keylogger could be installed etc.
Just hoping for any ideas while we're at this initial discovery / research stage.
Accepting both Fiat and Cryptocurrencies on the same payment terminal ?
Canadian fintech Dello company partners with PandaPay. Crypto payments app from Della is now fully integrated to PandaPay's smart terminals.
In Canada, merchants would benefit from an EMV-compliant terminal accepting all payment debit and credit cards, as well as cryptocurrencies, within the same transaction flow.
PandaPay is a leading payment processing company established in 2014 with over 7000 merchant locations processing a combined annual transaction volume of over $3.5 billion dollars.
Hi all, new to the in-person business front, just starting out with a business idea and trying to get information on everything (based in Toronto).
I was looking into payments and whatnot, I see most POS companies provide a terminal for a monthly fee or rental and thought to check amazon. My question is, is it possible for me to purchase a terminal on my own and somehow connect it to a bank etc directly or would I always need to go through some sort of POS company? Or could I bring my own device to any POS provider if I cant connect to a bank directly?
I don't really want the full breadth of sales software, just a terminal to handle and process payments.
I found this terminal on amazon and was thinking about what the purpose would be of buying/selling this if I always need to connect via a POS company.
Sorry if its a dumb question, I'm new to businesses and want to have some knowledge before starting my own. Thanks!
Starlink already shrunk the plan to certify Gen1 user terminal hardware to only 500 terminals on planes. Now it's completely abandoning mobile (ESIM) Gen1 hardware.
In the year since SpaceX initially filed the application for its first generation ESIMs, it has developed—and is now poised to deploy—two new versions of its ESIMs: a second-generation ESIM and a high-performance (“HP”) ESIM for use in more challenging conditions. SpaceX intends to deploy these newer designs as its initial ESIM hardware, bypassing the first-generation ESIM. Indeed, applications for the new ESIM versions are already under Commission consideration. In these circumstances, continuing to process this first-generation ESIM application would only pull Commission resources away from those more urgent proposals for the next-generation and HP ESIMs. Accordingly, SpaceX hereby withdraws the above referenced first-generation application and amendment.
As a result of the epidemic, people’s lifestyles have changed significantly, and the “home economy” has led to explosive growth in several new industries. Today’s general environment is increasingly conducive to the development of the AR industry, which includes the AR hardware market. According to market scale estimation, the market size of VR/AR terminal hardware in China is expected to be close to 180 billion yuan in 2025, and from 2020 to 2025, the shipment of VR/AR terminal hardware will grow from about 4 million units to nearly 60 million units. And the compound annual growth rate of AR devices is much higher than that of VR devices, up to 103.4%.
Apple Inc. is planning a new service that will let small businesses accept payments directly on their iPhones without any extra hardware, according to people with knowledge of the matter.
The company has been working on the new feature since around 2020, when it paid about $100 million for a Canadian startup called Mobeewave that developed technology for smartphones to accept payments with the tap of a credit card. The system will likely use the iPhone’s near field communications, or NFC, chip that is currently used for Apple Pay.
n order to accept payments on an iPhone today, merchants need to use payment terminals that plug in or communicate with the phone via Bluetooth. The upcoming feature will instead turn the iPhone into a payment terminal, letting users such as food trucks and hair stylists accept payments with the tap of a credit card or another iPhone onto the back of their device.
The move could impact payments providers that rely on Apple’s iPhones to facilitate sales, such as Block Inc.’s Square, which dominates the market. If Apple lets any app use the new technology, then Square can continue accepting payments via Apple devices without needing to worry about providing its own hardware. If Apple requires merchants to use Apple Pay or its own payment processing system, that could compete directly with Square. A Block representative didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
Shares of Block fell less than 1% during pre-market trading in New York on Thursday; Apple advanced less than 1%.
t’s unclear whether the payment acceptance option will be branded as part of Apple Pay, though the team working on the feature has been working within Apple’s payments division since being brought over from Mobeewave, the people said. It’s also not known if Apple intends to partner with an existing payment network for the feature or launch it alone.
Apple may begin rolling out the feature via a software update in the coming months, the people said. The company is expected to release the first beta version of iOS 15.4 in the near future, which is likely to see a final release for consumers as early as the spring. An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment.
Apple has been escalating its push in payments in recent years, launching the Apple Card in the U.S. in 2019 and rolling out Apple device installment plans on the credit card late... keep reading on reddit ➡
I don't know the name of it, but arch linux users use it to show people that they are using arch linux and it shows their hardware info, distro name, and all that fancy stuff in the terminal.

We launched an Annual Inecentive Plan in Workday. Terminated employees are eligible for an award in certain circumstances.
Our payroll team is telling us that when they are testing a payroll for this event, the termed employees are all showing a 0 for the bonus, even though they have awards in the AIP event.
Anyone have any ideas on what we might be missing?
Our first Terminal blog post is up! Check it out, let us know what you think, and share it if you think it's worth it. Feel free to drop thoughts or questions in this thread and I'll try to respond.
Also, if you haven't already, sign-up for our beta wait list, and please spread the word on it with your referral code. We're so excited to show you what we've been working on, and to work together to make it better!
We've also got something special planned for January 28th, so stay tuned!
Thanks for your support!
Where and how do I report this? I know discussion of payment is a federally protected right. Not really interested in talking to the employer about this, just fyi.
I'm currently going through a staffing agency (and tbh am already discovering errors in payment as well).
StrayaCoin is developing a model to deliver POS payments terminals to businesses so they can accept multiple cryptocurrencies.
Here is the link to the video , with a working device and explaination. https://youtu.be/jObX-_1NN0M
They already have businesses helping them test their beta versions of the hardware.
“ StrayaCoin was born on the 26th of January, 2018 from an existing forked version of Litecoin with developments by the Strayacoin Foundation. Since the launch, the Strayacoin Foundation has grown to a team-size of ten. You can find the list of our developers and their roles in the “Team” section. “ - From their Bitcointalk (ANN) page https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4769633.0
(NAH) has a circulating supply of around 7,700,000
With a current price of 145 sats or $.0081
Making the market cap a staggering $62,000 USD
StrayaCoin already has a working product in Beta, even some coins that are valued at 500x hover than this project do not even have that.
This is a POW based mining project that deserves some attention.

This is the definition of moonshot people, it doesn’t really get better than this. They are working to be the biggest cryptocurrency payments processors in the entire continent of Australia! A $1million market cap would be a x16 increase in price. And even $1 million is really small, think about it!
(Edit: $86,000 Market cap as of update)
I have a tenant who is habitually late with the rent and owes me sufficient back rent that I'm positive I'll never see a dime of it. Most of the tenant's time in our house coincided with the peak of COVID and the Federal/State/Local restrictions on eviction etc., and I am not a monster who's going to evict someone in a pandemic... so I largely let it go. But now I am coming to the end of the 18-month Initial Term and just found out from the Utilities that my tenant owes them $2,000 or so as well. (This is my surprised face.) I need the tenant out of the property, and I am content to eat the back rent owed if it means washing my hands of a deadbeat tenant.
I think the tenant is just a hard-luck case who could never really afford the property, but I'm wary of them suddenly miraculously developing an eagle eye for contractual and legal details and dragging the process out -- all the while failing to pay rent or utilities.
In your opinion, what's my best way forward? I need to deliver some kind of written notice ASAP in order for it to take effect by June 1st.

Exactly what it says on the tin.
My former employer previously said at the time of termination (1/30/2022) that I would be paid for 2 weeks on the following payday.
It is now the following payday (2/15/2022) and I have not been paid.
When I asked him about it, he said that receipt of final payment is conditional on them receiving the equipment I used while working remotely. It is my understanding that under Pennsylvania law, where they operate from, that they are required to pay me my final payment on the next payday after termination and that receipt of final payment cannot be conditional.
I went ahead and filed an unpaid wages claim with the Pennsylvania Department of Labor. Although I do intend to ship the equipment back, I had originally intended to do so after receiving my final paycheck. At this point, I’m likely just going to ship it back today, but I figured I would file a claim regardless.
Update: I spoke to a handful of PA labor lawyers. They’re all telling me the same thing: let the Department of Labor handle it so that I don’t get charged attorney’s fees. But, other than that, that it sounds like an open and shut case.
