This is cool (http://squareup.com/) for two reasons. 1) For what it is and 2) it's real HTML5 throughout.

Here's a story and video about SquareUp. (http://www.stltoday.com/blogzone/life-tech/social-networking/2009/12/st-louis-twitter-founder-finally-reveals-next-venture/)

That is a pretty cool idea. I like how it shows a picture of the card holder and you have to say yes or no.

Hah, that's a nice idea. I don't think it will work because the price of maintaining a smartphone for each person who can accept a payment is prohibitive, but maybe it is actually cheaper than dedicated readers. If it is, though, prices will probably come down to match. I'd like to see it in action.
