Apple Axes Match.com's iOS App Over Billing Squabble

FIERCEMOBILE CONTENT - Dec 2 - Apple has removed Match.com's iOS application from its App Store after the dating site failed to adhere to the storefront's subscription billing policies.

Muslim Matchmaking Is Big Business, Non-Muslim Entrepreneurs Need Not Apply?

DATINGBEESKNEES - Dec 2 - Online dating has become increasingly popular among Muslims. According to new population projections by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life, “the world’s Muslim population is expected to increase by ~35% in the next 20 years, rising from 1.6 billion in 2010 to 2.2 billion by 2030.” This growth is roughly at twice the rate of the non-Muslim global population for the next two decades. There was a quote in the article by the halfourdeen.com founder that struck a nerve: “Baba Ali explains that what is more worrying for him is the fact that a number of Muslim matchmaking sites are owned by non-Muslims.” Is Baba Ali implying that non-Muslim entrepreneurs should not have the opportunity to sit at the table and have a piece of this pie? The issue is not who’s behind the service, but rather how you are serving your customers.

Dating Service Connects People Over Their Leftovers

WIRED.CO.UK - Dec 2 - Farmers cooperative Lantmännen has developed a dating tool that connects singles based on what food they have leftover in their fridges. It might not sound like the level of psychometric filtering touted by other dating sites, but Lantmännen aims to pair up fellow environmentally-conscious single people to share leftover dishes or ingredients. According to Lantmännen, a fifth of all food in Sweden is thrown away. It was this figure that led to the creation of the dating service, called Restdejting. Lantmännen is a major player within food, energy and agriculture in Sweden. It is owned by 36K Swedish farmers and has over 10K employees.
