WOW: Apple Mini Stores

The first of six Apple mini stores opened this weekend, according to Josh Rubin who says that the stores will not only feature cutting edge design, but also forward thinking technology.
Josh writes:
“Because 80% of customers pay with credit cards there will be self service check out stations. To facilitate communication within the store and back to “HQ,” all employees will wear a Trekkie like communicator that operates using voice commands. ”
Here’s a picture of the store- it looks amazing.
