Best Buy Trade-in Deal

Best Buy seems to be Apple’s Best Friend nowadays.  The national chain is offering a 50% discount on old iPhones when you step up to the iPhone 5.  It’s all part of Apple’s bigger strategy to clear the decks potentially for two new rumored models: iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C.  The first will be the next generation of iPhone technology that will include the new iOS7, possibly a fingerprint reader but not change to the physical phone.  The 5C is supposed to be a less expensive, multi-colored entry level iPhone that will be used to break into international markets.

Section is crazy busy with people occasionally wandering by to play with the Surface RT.  No sales people anywhere near because they were busy.  Asked on sales rep where the Surface RT was and he had to go ask his manager.  No information about the details on the computer, e.g. 32 Gigs, 64 Gigs etc.
