I think it's a handy little device and a clever entry by Intuit to provide a solution to a need. Around here in Vermont, we have many small vendor setups that last a day or only a few hours. Everything from farmer's markets & musicians to kayak lessons and vendors at a festival. A portable device like this will make the bookkeeping and fund transfers much easier for them. The ability to accept credit cards if they couldn't before is also a nice addition.
