I feel like this would annoy people in the apple store that have it on. Walk by a phone, get a message asking if you want to upgrade. Walk by an ipad, get a message asking if you want to buy an ipad. Walk by a Mac, get a message asking if you want to buy a mac. Usually customers can find a checkout on their own. I'm curious to see if this will be anything that actually improves a shopping experience.
The Apple store in Yorkdale mall in Toronto has no checkout counter / desk. 100% of transactions are completed by people walking around in blue shirts carring iphones that have a monsterous attachment on them.
They can do away with the employees too now with i-beacon.

Meh. Bring it to stores other than your own and then I'll care. As it stands, this is just another manifestation of society's most popular form of self gratification. Twisted Evil
Macy's is deploying this as well.

Store's Bathroom.

With the iFlush app, shoppers will receive a notification to flush the toilet and wash their hands before re-entering the showroom.
