retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Boston Globe reports that Open Table, the online restaurant reservation service, "has created a mobile payment system that lets users pay from their tables," and plans to expand it from a San Francisco test to more than 20 cities by the end of the year.

The story says that "the service lets any OpenTable app user add a credit card to their account and “view and pay their check at participating restaurants with a few taps."
