Square Cash lets anyone with a debit card send money instantly over email

Square Cash Review – The Money is in the Email | AllThingsD

Walt Mossberg:

Square Cash does have some downsides. At launch, there’s no way to see a history of your transactions. Square says your past email shows that. And the company makes no promise to pay you back from its own funds in the case of fraud, only to reverse the transaction. It also has no limit on your liability from fraud. And at launch, it only links a debit card to one email address at a time, so sending from, or to, an unlinked email address can require a new setup.

However, Square Cash is the quickest, simplest method I’ve seen for sending money from one person to another.

Seems almost too good to be true — not least because there are no fees at all. If I send you $25.00, you get $25.00.

Why Care About 30,000 Notes?

Why Care About 30,000 Notes? |


I’m not promising or even hinting at anything. I’m just explaining what I think about when I’m making decisions regarding performance and scalability. If I assumed that there would never be a way to automate adding notes, I might be correct — but I’d be guilty of malpractice. The engineering department doesn’t have the luxury of making that assumption.

Underscore Price Dynamics

Underscore Price Dynamics |

This is the real reason why Apple doesn’t care about upgrade pricing: there’s no demand from customers. The market has shown that free apps will be downloaded at least an order of magnitude more than paid-up-front apps, and smart use of in-app purchase in a free app is likely to make more money. Over time, this trend has only become stronger and more clear.

Paid-up-front iOS apps had a great run, but it’s over. Time to make other plans.

Dave Mark:

John Gruber talks about future plans for Vesper with incredibly refreshing honesty. Devs and product marketing managers, this is worth a read (and worth emulating). So great.

Brent Simmons:

You remember in Lord of the Rings when Gollum finally gets the ring and he’s holding it up and dancing around? That’s me and TextKit.

So happy together.
