It's Hip to be Square

Here's a cool gadget you'll be seeing around yours truly and maybe some of your other favorite authors.  It's called the Square and it allows you to turn your iPhone into a credit card swiping machine.  I recently picked one up to facilitate sales at my personal appearances.

Easy peasy.  You download an app and they send you the peripheral device for FREE.

Sure, they take a small cut of the transaction but I think it's totally worth it considering I'm reaching people who might not have made a cash only purchase. One more barrier kicked to the curb by the use of technology, and a major win for personal sized businesses.
