Apple Stores switches out paper displays with iPads

Apple Stores across the globe have not ditched the old paper displays used to display product information for laptops and such and instead started using iPads. The iPads show product information, allow potential buyers to compare products, and even allow them to call Apple Store employees over to help them in person. It’s only logical, really; aside from being able to show much more information than a similarly sized piece of paper, using iPads this way also helps advertise the iPad itself as those who were initially in there only to look at other products will get to play with one. Apple isn’t the first to do this though, as some museums have been using iDevices for exhibition information for ages.
