Now that's making a statement...

I've got one of these Square readers in my pocket. Haven't had the
opportunity to test it, and haven't felt like losing the cut they take from
every transaction just to swipe my own card.

Probably the biggest roadblock to its use is getting people to trust their
credit card to it. Went to lunch with some co-workers and couldn't convince
them to let me consolidate our shares of the cost with it. They preferred to
pay me cash. (Now that I think of it, one of them was a little short, and
now he's no longer with the company... DAMN!)
