Today Square released the latest generation of its credit card reader that enables users to accept credit cards via the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

The all-new Square Reader is built with custom-designed components for better performance, easier use and an elegant, thinner design.

"We engineered purpose-built components to create both excellent performance and beautiful design, without compromise," said Jesse Dorogusker, head of Hardware at Square.

● A custom magnetic readhead and spring. Thinner and more accurate than the alternatives, the readhead parses redundant data from credit cards to ensure successful swipes.
● Custom electronics in a single chip. The reader is powered by the phone into which it is plugged, eliminating the need for a bulky battery and increasing life and reliability.
● Improved communications protocols and a custom audio plug. The Square Reader is compatible with more devices than ever before.
● The thinnest mobile card reader on the market.

The new Square Reader is available today at the link below...

Now that Square is refusing to process payments for legal items like guns, ammo and tobacco, I will no longer buy anything from anyone that needs to use a Square card reader. If you're a merchant using one, I'm sorry. I suggest you find another way to process transactions.

In 2009, Obama agreed upon the Credit card Act into law. Part of the legislation is that credit card issuers and the National Foundation for Credit Counseling must work together to provide free credit counseling to delinquent customers. In spite of this, credit-constrained consumers simply are not using the resources, per NFCC reports. Visit our site now.

It looks and is described identically to the previous generation. What's new? Is there a rubber sleeve to keep it from turning when I swipe a card?

Maybe it should come with a grip on for the device to keep it from turning!
