updated 10:58 pm EST, Tue February 11, 2014

Whole Foods become second large-scale customer of Square

Natural foods grocery chain Whole Foods has plans to integrate Square's iPad cash registers into its stores, with a few of its locations already implementing the devices. Whole Foods has signed a deal to put Square's iPad-based payment systems inside US grocery locations, where they will be used at counters that sell ready-to-consume products, such as pizza, sandwiches, and beverages, for the purpose of supplementing conventional checkouts. Customers will be able to pay for 'quick purchases' at the cash register with credit and debit cards, cash, and the Square Wallet smartphone app (in some locations). Whole Foods is the second major company to adopt Square's payment system.

Ken Burns app for iPad offers American history in the form of film clip collection

Documentary filmmaker Ken Burns has released an app of the same name for iPad, offering a mode of viewing a collection of film clips from his work pertaining to American history. The film clips can be arranged in a variety of ways, such as chronologically, through a timeline, or via themed playlists. The Ken Burns app aims to display historical moments as being interconnected, demonstrated by the way the clips are arranged and the particular content. The app is free to download, and includes one playlist, with the rest of the content requiring a $10 purchase.
