If you own a Coinkite payment terminal, then there are some new features available to you:
We are working towards a very powerful API for terminals that I think will interest all terminal owners, but for now we are taking baby steps: You can query the current exchange rates and get a JSON data object back. Enable the feature here
New terminal firmware (0.6) Available
With the newest firmware, a few small bugs and annoyances have been fixed, and it is now possible to re-print bills, verify them (without needing to scan) and also mark them for archiving from the the menu system.
Just FYI: @Coinkite is tested and covered already against #HeartBleed

They are everywhere, and now with Coinkite, you can scan them and pay the amounts they represent.
Just go to the QR scanner page at Coinkite (no login required) and you have a few options:
Regardless of which method you use, as soon as a valid QR code is detected, you will be taken to Coinkite to approve the purchase.
iPhone/iPad users: This works for you too, just press the “Use Photo” button and take a new photo to be sent. It doesn’t have live feedback but that’s all Apple allows us. Be patient! You’ll find a proper QR scanning app generally works better.
Now’s a great time to bookmark this scanner page on your mobile device! It’s where you want to start whenever you are paying for something with your phone. Just go to coinkite.com/scan-qr and save the bookmark to your home screen.
PS: If you are a Mac User, we made this app to read QR codes from your screen a while back.
