It seems Square is taking a (design) cue from the iMac.
I must admit, I’m a huge fan of the card swipe mechanism being built in to the stand.
On a side, note: Is it wrong that I judge businesses that don’t use/support mobile payments? One of my favorite coffee shops uses Square for their payments. I’m impressed when I see businesses stepping out of the technological comfort of existing point of sale systems.
