Coming Soon: "Apple Store 2.0"

The internet's been abuzz as of late with reports of a major worldwide overhaul of the iconic Apple Store, dubbed "Apple Store 2.0".  Among the rumored additions to Apple's beloved retail space include interactive iPad-displayed pricing (in place of the current paper and clear plastic signs), a new Apple Store iOS app that tracks when you enter an Apple retail store and which one (then asking you if you'd like to see a specialist – it will also display a guide of things to do in the store), as well as the installment of massive video displays and improved sound systems in some locations.  Employees are supposedly receiving speciality training for the use of iPads in the store.

Expect to see these and other enhancements take place soon – some sources say as early as Sunday (tomorrow) morning.
