It’s still early enough in the game for me to still get a kick out of using a tablet to conduct a transaction. Payment services like Square and GoPayment make it easy for small businesses to get up and running without the usual hassle. Places like the Apple store, with their custom acrylic iPad product displays and special barcode-scanning/magstripe reading iPhone POS system take convenience to a new level. If you run a small retail business that’s considering upgrading your customers shopping experience, check out the IntraStand iPad Register Stand from San Francisco maker Sean Spurling. It’s a wooden iPad register stand that works with your favorite iOS payment system to create a modern point of sale experience.
The Intra-stand was designed at the request of Jack Dorcey and Jim Mc Kelvey co- founders of square(square up.com) the first version was first seen at the release party of the square iPad app which was held at sight glass coffee on the same day iPad was released. realizing that iPad was not going to be the only tablet computer useful to square it was subsequently redesigned to it’s current form which is modular and simple and can be easily adaptable to any kind of device.
