While at a bachelor party recently, my buddy Fitz whipped out his iPhone to order strippers via the Web.
Two hours later, we arrived at the motel where our ladies were waiting.
Unfortunately, yet predictably, only 3 of the 10 guys involved had brought cash into the room, to provide the strippers with.
What were we to do? Square to the rescue.
Square was founded by Twitter co-creator, Jack Dorsey. The application allows you to accept mobile payments with your iPhone or Android based smartphone. Based in San Francisco, the company recently raised $100 million and its estimated value comes in at $1.4 billion.
The ladies’ “handler” broke out his iPhone and opened the Square application. He attached a Square dongle.
In the absence of singles, he told us we could swipe for $5 every time we liked a particular “move”. No cash for a lap dance? Square.
Thanks, Jack Dorsey!
