  • Hush-Hush Apple Retail Employee Meeting Rumored for Weekend


    Apple is reportedly planning a top-secret meeting among its retail employees this weekend. Gary Allen of ifoAppleStore.com says the meeting is so sensitive in nature that retail employees are currently in the process of signing non-disclosure agreements ahead of this weekend's pow-wow.

    Individuals privy to the unfolding events inside Apple report that the push for non-disclosure signatures began in earnest yesterday. While such practices are not uncommon, it is believed that Apple retail employees unwilling or unable to sign the form will be excluded from the meetings taking place across the Apple retail store landscape, most likely, this weekend. Despite initial speculation that the meeting was originally scheduled for last weekend, it now appears that such reports were premature.

    So what's this hush-hush meeting all about? Understandably, there is a large basket full of possible reasons for the employee meeting. We're hearing what others - including our friends at Apple Insider - have also heard today. Most likely, the scheduled meeting will revolve around a new in-store initiative or service, rather than a new product. Of course, when it comes to Apple, no idea can ever be removed from the table, particularly given the influx of reports we've seen this week that a "product event" is in the works and may be formally announced at any time.

      What he's doing is giving us something to read. If it weren't so.... Your comments wouldn't even exist would they? Whether it be something for you to learn, or something for you to complain about.... It is what it is.

      some enjoy reading about it. Some don't, if you don't like it.... Simply navigate to something else. But as I previously implied.... Some prefer to be here just for the drama.

I would have to read a few articles down to gather that information, then put 2 and 2 together, then SPECULATE that the articles coincide with each other.

      Thats more my point than anything. Sorry if you were butt hurt by my comment, that was not the intention.





      It wasn't a question, more of a statement. The investing in dielectric grease comment was my example of speculation, I guess that went over your head. I don't feel the need to comment on your statement about my spelling, but misspelled words get underlined so the correct spelling is just a right click away.
      It may not be useful or interesting to you, but others might enjoy it, so just leave it be. No one likes to hear someone complain about things we've heard before, it's annoying. Don't like it, don't read it, and don't comment. Simple as that.

      I wish I could be invited to a secret meeting. You know it's going to leak out either way lol, they might as well come out and tell us

      Some of you guys are tough, rumors are just that, but we all want to know what's cooking at Apple.
      Constructive criticism is always better then bashing or starting a pissing contest. If you don't like what is written or being posted, there is always the "New Posts" button to move on.
      Think of me what you will, but I find this kind of stuff fun, and I'm always in for a good giggle.

      Has anyone considered that maybe the pallets contain iPads, and not MBPs?

      Think how big it would be for Jobs (or whoever fills in if he's not healthy enough) to say:

      "...and it's available... Now."

      There'd be a mad rush, lol.

      I work for apple store in Canada... It's not a secret meeting of any kind!

      It's the Quarterly meeting that we have every 3 months to discuss business.
