As a consumer I'd NEVER use my card in one of them!

With a dedicated credit card machine it's very difficult for someone to hack it or produce a fake device.

With devices like the Square anyone can write a fake credit card app that reads the strip and capture the code you type in. A hacker proved how easy it was to capture the credit card info and misuse it, but Square dismissed it rather than stating how they could protect the consumer. All the faqs and information out there is aimed only at the retailers.
