apple to minimize (maybe eliminate) cashwrap/registers
in a report on appleinsider, apple is planning on removing most (and in some cases all) the registers from the retail stores.
as anyone will know that has visited a store (especially during the holidays knows) the handheld “cashier” (credit card only) makes the visit easier, quicker and since 90% of the people are buying with credit – it makes sense.
the other cool thing is they ask for an email address to send a receipt and generally before i walk more than 50 feet with my bag my iPhone is buzzing with a new message. a PDF is attached with all the details of my purchase.
great idea, great implementation and it will be interesting how apple makes this more robust and simpler for the purchaser. if you see or hear anything from your friendly neighborhood apple store, let us know!
