On Tuesday’s Online Insider, KSTP.com’s Cory Kampschroer reports the following stories:
Geode by iCache
Soon you could ditch your bulky wallet. Geode by iCache is essentially an iPhone case that comes with a programmable credit card.
When you check out, simply open the app on your phone and select which credit card you want to use. Your fingerprint unlocks the app and you can store multiple credit cards within the program.
The program also has a scannable barcode to store your loyalty and membership cards.
The app costs about $200 and is set to be released in July.

Google and Meebo
Google is trying to entice you to use its social networking site.
They’re buying Silicon Valley Startup Meebo to expand Google+. The deal will likely give Google+ users more instant messaging and communication opportunities.
The terms of the deal have no yet been released.
Social Media and Jobs
Most people use their social media networks to interact with friends, but what you say to your friends may not be what you want to say to a potential employer.
Reppler is a site that searches online profiles and finds problems that may effect if you get hired or not.
91% of employers said they use social media networks to screen hires, and 69% have rejected candidates based on what they found online.
