Comments Off on Area Man Buys Ice Cream at Shop That Uses Square
President Obama bought some ice cream at an ice cream shop that uses Square for its payment system. Square, cleverly and smartly, tweeted out this picture of Obama and his daughters buying said ice cream with the Square payment device front and center. A nice ad for Square's merchant services. Square has a market cap of 3.84 billion right now, supposedly that were worth $6 billion less than a month ago before going public. How popular is Square? How will their loaning money to small businesses work out? Square claims to have the ability to use all the data they collect
