PayPal is making its way into retail stores and is now being testing in a few Office Depot locations. Office Depot becomes the second major retailer to start offering PayPal’s point-of-sale system, already in use by 51 Home Depot stores. PayPal plans to be available in 20 retailers by year’s end. In other news, a survey of over 100,000 people found that RedBox kiosks have become the most popular source for renting DVDs and Blu-rays. RedBox’s kiosks have become so popular, it now owns 37% of the physical rental market; edging out both Netflix and Blockbuster. And finally, some people are outraged at the end-user license agreement of Apple’s new e-book publishing software iBooks Author. Any work made with iBooks Author that you’d like to sell can only be distributed by Apple. Like the App Store, Apple collects 30% of the profit.
