I thought something looked familar as I looked at the TV.  Outside in my garage in Colorado watching Netflix and Luke Cage I saw what looked like a kiosk from iPadKiosks.

“For Pete’s Sake” is episode 22 (#9 in season 2) and is the big showdown in Rand Corporation building.  A quick synopsis — Knight gets Cage, Lucas, Dillard, and Johnson to an unfinished building belonging to Rand Enterprises, where Dillard agrees to testify against Bushmaster in exchange for immunity. Knight and Cage are against this, but agree that they can only fight one at a time.

In any case the use the iPadkiosks unit as their access point.

Pretty cool placement!

How Square Made Its Own iPad Replacement

How Square Made Its iPad Replacement

Square has always made hardware, but its new Android-based tablet shows it’s serious about controlling the payments experience.

Good article on how Square has taken charge of its hardware and utilized design principles based on dual-user employee-customer interface model.

The 10″ iPad that swiveled had too many shortcomings. Now it is a purpose-built Android at 13″ and two screens.

The result of the whole process was not a single tablet, but a two-in-one device. The Square Register is comprised of a 13-inch, anodized aluminum tablet, which is stamped and machined. It has an HD touchscreen display and, while it’s attached to a stand, it was designed to look like it’s hovering in space. The second, seven-inch tablet can either be docked in the back of the big tablet, or sit elsewhere on the counter, attached by micro-USB. This small tablet’s display is Gorilla Glass, in case it gets dropped or knocked off the counter.

The register is running on two Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processors. And in a move that is indeed very Apple-y, Square has designed its own secure enclave, a co-processor for processing encrypted payment information. About a dozen employees at Square work on the silicon team.

Great article, the above is a short excerpt.
