Apple checks out with Windows

June 28, 2006

Apple uses Windows, too. At the Apple store Microsoft products run the day-to-day operations of the business. Windows Embeded powers the inventory system of the Apple Stores!

Apple is looking for ways to cut down on wait times at its stores’ checkout lines and roaming WiFi-enabled processing stations in the hands of each employee may be the answer. The same employee helping you pick out the right set of headphones for your iPod can scan product barcodes and take payments via credit card right on the spot. Your receipt will sent to you via e-mail just in case you need to make a return or file an expense report.
