Apple Retail Store, new Bus, and UMA-2 iBook

MacOS Rumors was busy on Friday - and posted 3 items.


  • Word that Apple is looking to open their own Retail Stores around Macworld NewYork. The previous concern about these were that they would provide competition to CompUSA and (now) the Wiz's offerings.
