Hand-held Credit Card Scanners

I was really amazed when I came to Europe and found that every restaurant and cafe and even most pubs have these hand-held credit card scanners. It’s such a logical device: rather than a waiter taking your credit card away, and running the risk that (at best) it will be accidentally returned to another customer, the waiter brings the reader to you. Apparently, they’re just now starting to catch on in the US, at least according to this article from the New York Times.
