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.

Yep, most Apple stores don't have any kind of traditional or easily identifiable register.

That is interesting. I've never been to an apple store, the closest one to me is about 2 hours away. I can see a use for that then.

They can do away with the employees too now with i-beacon.
