Turns Out That Project Van Listing At Target Was Actually Just Guitar Hero Live

Originally posted on My Nintendo News:

One of the readers from My Nintendo News who works at US retail chain Target has contacted to me to say that Project Van is actually Guitar Hero for Wii U. The reader did a little bit of digging on Target’s systems and discovered that it isn’t anything particularly exciting, just Activision’s Guitar Hero Live. Well, I guess that’s one rumour over and done with.

Hey I work at target and looked into project van. It would seem that it’s actually the name for the new guitar hero game. Or at least the name for the pre order card. It happens from time to time where the previous order card doesn’t match the card. Pokémon omega ruby was called Pokémon beta on our shelf. What makes it odd tho is the ps4 and Xbox one versions are marked properly. Just a heads up. It’s not a new game just guitar…

Zero-Fee Stock Trading App Robinhood Nabs $50M From NEA To Go Global

Rikki Robertson-Brown:

“Robinhood is swiftly fulfilling its mission to steal commission charges from online brokerages for the rich, and give access to the stock market to the poor” Best statement I have heard in ten years.

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

In case you thought paying $7 to $10 to trade a stock in the US was bad, it costs $65 in Australia. So now that its zero-fee stock trading app is thriving stateside with hundreds of thousands of users, Robinhood is planning to go international, starting in Australia. A $50 million Series B cash infusion from NEA will fuel that expansion, as well as hiring and development of Robinhood’s first monetization feature.

“Bringing the largest VC firm in history into the round is very confidence-inspiring for customers”, co-founder Vlad Tenev tells me. With 25% being first time traders, Robinhood’s users have transacted over $500 million on the app to save $12 million in fees to date.
