Let’s Clear Up Some Details About Square’s Big Partnership With Starbucks

Dan Frommer cuts through the crap:

Starbucks cashiers will scan a Square barcode on your phone to “pay with Square”, the same way they currently scan a barcode on your phone’s Starbucks app. Both of these should support iOS 6 Passbook, I’m told.

Makes sense. This isn’t quite the Square you know and love, but it’s a good step forward.
