Over the weekend, Apple retail stores were advised of a couple of changes during staff meetings -- one at long last eliminates the restocking fees, while the other introduces personal Mac setup along with the one offered for iOS devices.
If you’ve purchased anything from one of Apple’s retail stores, you’ve no doubt seen the company’s EasyPay point of sale system, which is built on their own iPod touch hardware. Now the system is expanding its retail horizons, with a pilot program at Old Navy stores.
Count us as among the folks scratching our heads in bewilderment when Microsoft announced they were going to fire up those copying machines and open a chain of retail stores. A new report finds that the effort appears to be faltering at best.
Gamblers can find just about any reason to indulge in their favorite temptation, and with the Black Friday shopping season only a week away, odds makers are already placing their own bets on who will be hot this shopping season.
In what alternate universe would you have to live to hear this: “Honey, next time you’re down at TJ Maxx getting a great deal on clothes, pick me up one of those iPads I keep hearing about.” As it turns out, it’s not only a reality, but it could be happening in this very universe.
We told you about it earlier this month, and the day has finally arrived: The iPad is now available for sale at both Verizon Wireless (coupled with a MiFi 2200) and AT&T (where it uses the native 3G data plan).
Still haven’t bought an iPad, even though Apple just made it even easier to do by stocking the tablet in more than 1,700 Target stores across the country this month? Maybe you’d rather hit your local Wal-Mart instead? It appears that you’ll be able to do exactly that soon enough.
Apple’s iPad is now poised to go mainstream -- in addition to now being available at Target stores nationwide on Sunday, the iOS tablet has popped up on Amazon.com and reportedly in other stores such as Fry’s Electronics as well.
It's been a while since anyone has mentioned iPad sales. It's been confirmed that they're moving out the door as fast as Apple can move them, and there's also verification that Apple's will be increasing production on the tablet in the days to come. But it's taken some time for the full brunt of the iPad's tremendous success to be understood by the computer and retail industries. It would seem that the time for some schooling has come. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Best Buy CEO Brian Dunn has stated that the iPad is cannibalizing upwards of 50% of all laptop sales from his company's chain of stores.
