If you've ever bought something at an Apple retail store, you may have seen the little credit card swipers that employees carry around. You don't have to go a cash register, you just give the person your card, they run it, they print out a receipt, it's really handy. Now Apple is beginning to export the technology and Old Navy appears to be first in line with each store getting exactly one of these things.
