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. 😈
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.
