Technology Rocks ... The Square

Technology Rocks ....
at least most of the time.
If you're like me ... there are those times when you
have to stop yourself from throwing your laptop or cell phone or whatever ...
under the nearest bus.
In my case ... I've almost thrown my Mac into the pool several times.

But then there are times when the stuff they come up with is amazing.

Have you heard of ...
The Square?

This little gizmo ...
***and I do mean little***
lets you to accept credit card payments on your cell phone.
The money is then deposited into your personal bank account.
It also allows for a signature ... and then ... can print or email a receipts.

It works with iPhones ... Androids ... or iPads.
This thing is super cool ... and the card reader is free.
You do pay a small percent for each transaction ... but it's like 2.75%.

I just got one and it works great!
***I'm such a sucker for stuff like this***

The Square should be ideal for Craft Shows or other events.
People rarely carry much cash these days ... and checks have almost gone the way of
the dinosaurs.   I think customers will really appreciate the convenience.

I also think it'll come in handy at restaurants ... when it comes time to 
splitting up the bill.  I can put the tab on my credit card ... 
and then my friends can run their card and put their share in my account.

To be honest ... I've only had this thing a few weeks ...
and I haven't taken it to any shows yet.
So I'll let you know ... 
I don't think even I can screw this up ... but the night is young.

Oh ... yeah ... I did get one more little techno-gadget.

It seemed like a good idea at the time ... it is cute.
Whatever ... I did use it for a week or so.

Ooooh ... but check this out ... now this I could use.

Well ... maybe not.

Thank you for sharing this! I have a fall Pumpkin Patch/Corn Maze and have never been able to take credit cards because it's down in a field with no power! This looks like just what I need!
