Verizon Wireless confirmed that it will begin charging a fee to process bill payments. Starting January 15th, each payment that you make over the phone or by visiting Verizon’s website will cost you $2. You can avoid the fee by paying electronically through your bank or mailing in a check. In other news, the social network Google+ is growing rapidly, adding over 625,000 users per day. The site now has over 62 million registered users, a quarter of which were added in December alone. While it’s still a fraction of Facebook’s users, Google+ is steadily catching up. And finally, some customers are so enraged with GoDaddy’s support of the Stop Online Piracy Act, they organized a massive boycott from the online company. Tens of thousands of domain names were transferred away from the site, including high-profile customers like Wikipedia.
