9to5Mac looks at Square’s new contactless doohickey for Apple Pay et al. It occurs to me that there’s a nice window of opportunity for contactless payment in the U.S. while consumers are getting their chip-and-pin cards and vendors don’t have their chip readers and have to ask to see your card for every transaction. Of course, the new machines they get will probably do both, but this added hassle might be putting a bit of a bad taste in the mouth for using a physical card.
Which you should not be putting in your mouth. Why are you even doing that, Andy? Stop. Stop it. Andy, we’re in public.
