Staples getting ready to sell Apple products?

It looks like Staples is on the path to becoming an authorized Apple reseller. An eagle-eyed netizen happened to come across a product page on Staples.com for the Apple TV. The price is listed at $49.99 which is half off the normal price. However, it is impossible to add it to your shopping cart; the product is listed as out of stock.

Also, the official name of the product on the site is "Apple TV, Test." So apparently this page is not meant to be live yet. At least, it's not meant to be seen by the general public. But it's a little to late for that, since screenshots of the product page have now been widely circulated.

Although Staples is a massive retailer for computers, electronics, and various computing accessories, it has never stocked Apple products. It does have a significant selection of iPhone and iPad accessories, but only those that are made from third-party manufacturers.

Obviously, Apple has made no announcement about bringing Staples into its retail family so right now everything is just speculation. But it seems highly unlikely that someone behind-the-scenes at Staples's corporate headquarters would create a product page for the Apple TV unless the company was planning to begin selling it.

Staples has been trying to get Apple products on its shelves for years, but the Cupertino, California-based company hasn't been too enthusiastic about that prospect.

However, Apple is starting to come to a point where it doesn't hold all the power. Its profits have declined for the first time in years so it needs to start coming up with some new strategies. It could very well be that an extended retail presence will be part of that.

Apple Pay’s Biggest Competitor and Retailer Backed Payment System CurrentC Hacked

Oct 29 2014 2:24pm CDT | Source: Pad Gadget

If Apple Pay users were told their financial information was going to be stored on iCloud servers I’m pretty sure that Apple Pay would be dead in the water after the recent iCloud security breach. If the day comes when there is a break of trust with Apple Pay, then people will likely stop using it and that is a reputation which would be hard to rebuild. CurrentC is building a smart phone commerce system which bypasses credit cards and uses the c ...

Ok, a solid chunk of plastic might not be very functional, and the finish doesn’t quite compare with that of the real thing, but if you’re really keen to get a sense of what the Apple Watch might be like on your wrist – and which of the two sizes might be right for you – you can now create a 3D-printed model.
