Apple have been trialling a new system which alerts store employees when you arrive, if you pre-ordred goods using your phone. But is that the end of queuing, or a a step too far?
If you own an iPhone, you can download the Apple Store app and shop before you head into the store. When you arrive, the app's location feature lets store workers know you're there via their own iPod Touch. This is similar, though not as extreme, as the rumour of Apple Store self-checkout systems we reported last month.
