Apple is rolling out an in-store pickup option for online purchases. Place an Apple order online, and you can pick up your order at your nearest Apple retail store — that is, if you live in San Francisco.
The program allows U.S. customers to elect in-store pickup for their purchases instead of home delivery. It appears that you can choose to pick up almost any computer, accessory, or custom configuration, though more complicated orders tend to come with a longer waiting time, notes “PC World” (http://macte.ch/FSUKF). Apple is using three stores in the Bay Area city as a testing ground for the program, with other U.S. stores coming soon, the article adds.
