Pogue Gives Square A Wet Kiss

Square tour

The New York Times’ David Pogue has reviewed Square — Twitter founder Jack Dorsey‘s new credit card payments gizmo — and gives it the thumbs up.

He notes that Square will be sending out new credit card readers to everyone soon — the old ones didn’t work with Apple’s new iPhone 4 — and that Square has fixed some of the back-end issues that slowed down adoption.

Will this — the so-called “Pogue Effect” — be enough to catapult Square into mainstream acceptance?
