Square: accept payments using your smartphone

With Square companies can easily accept physical credit card payments from their mobile phone.  This works by way of a small device that attaches to the headset/microphone jack.  Customer's credit cards can then be swiped through the Square attachment and it will register the sale (I'm guessing this will link to the business owners Paypal or bank account) customers will then be prompted to sign for the purchase and a receipt can be emailed or text messaged to them.  The device currently works with the iPhone, iPod Touch and Motorola Droid devices.  Go to Squareup.com for more info.
