We ran TextPayMe by you last year, a service that allows you to make PayPal-like payments over SMS. Well now it looks like PayPal is hoping to make those SMS payments a little more PayPal-like, since they're advertising for a business manager and senior product manager for their "PayPal Mobile" group, "a new mobile payments 'start-up' unit" in the company. So it looks like we might have some friendly competition in the mobile payment space sooner rather than later, which sounds fine by us.
