I know it's supposed to be point-of-sale... but every time I read POS it's something else in my head. lol =/

I doubt it.
Square will build their own web platform to compete with Shopify and tie the two together as Shopify have done. Well that's what I'd expect anyway.

I'd really like to see Apple Retail's EasyPay system come to market. Even if its not mobile, the software is the simplest to use I've ever seen.

Other retailers use it in some of their major retail locations. Sephora in NYC uses Apple's system, I remember speaking with an associate about it and how they loved it.

This would be great for some of the businesses I work with--except Shopify won't allow enough custom options on each product sold. PayPal lets you add options (at the very least custom text fields) pretty much at will if you're the programmer setting up the site. Shopify's limits keep me away from recommending it for all but the most basic "shirt in 3 sizes" kinds of products. Hopefully that will change because I've heard good things otherwise. Unlimited options please, and let the price be calculated from them arbitrarily using custom logic (such as based on entered product dimensions).

Both the hardware and software? I think incase makes the iPod touch case barcode scanner available to others, but I was previously unaware of Apple letting anyone touch their pos software.
