The growing prevalence, falling price and overall customizability of Apple products has led to the inevitable invention of the iPad cash register. Surprised? You shouldn't be. Smartphone attachments like Square make swiping cards, managing debit transactions and receiving cash payments incredibly easy.

The attached map shows the distribution of Square, the smart device add-on that makes processing credit cards a cinch. Not only has the attachment cultivated a business following in New York, Austin and Portland, but across the continental United States and Canada. In a sentence, that means that traditional tills are quickly being replaced by multipurpose iPad cash registers that allow employees to not only process transactions, but surf the Web, submit orders and conduct customer surveys.

The ultimate irony is that the combination of Square and the iPad is cheaper than modern cash boxes, whose maintenance costs and learning curve are a tad unreasonable. Stats for Tablet Retail Integrations Trending: Older & Mild
