Yahoo to Offer Payment Processing?

Gary Price sends word that Yahoo has been awarded a patent for what looks like a PayPal and Google Payments competitor.

Two things of interest.

1. Yahoo looks set to compete in the payment processing space.
2. How the heck did Yahoo get awarded a patent for something that appears to be offered by countless other services. (MikeOK, can I get an “amen”?)
