As Apple approaches the 10th anniversary of the opening of its first retail store on Thursday, rumors are circulating that the computer giant is about to spring a surprise or two on its fans.
Boy Genius Report is claiming that, according to a “solid Apple source,” the company may be planning “something big” for the weekend.
BGR says that between 10 and 15 employees at each Apple store will be working an overnight shift from Saturday evening and that during that shift, employees will be told to lock their cell phones in the main office and also asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
“Apple stores have apparently already received hardware to install, and are expecting more hardware to come on Friday or Saturday,” BGR says. “All materials that Apple stores have received have been instructed to be under lock and key until after close on Saturday night.”
BGR also claims that Apple employees will be “putting up black curtains at all stores so that people walking outside cannot see inside.
Could a new product be on the way this weekend? or is it just an internet based rumor? what do you think?
