Mobile CommerceMobile devices and applications are on the verge of becoming even more pivotal in the retail marketplace. Jack Dorsey, the creator of Twitter, has announced a new product that will allow people to make credit card purchases using iPhones and iPods.

The device will be available in March 2010.
