GET IT? Freeze? A little wordplaypal. HA! Okay, it’s a cute guerilla stunt by PayPal competitor WePay at the PayPal developer conference today. A 600 pound block of ice with money and the message “PayPal freezes your accounts” inside. Although knock on wood it hasn’t happened with my account yet, the idea underscores the main gripe users have with the service, in that accounts can be frozen over simple misunderstandings and take forever to resolve. WHEN GEEKS THROW DOWN. This part of the problem though when you aren’t regulated like a bank. Amirite?
