Apple blocks time off for late January, early February

John Moe Jan 6, 2011

It’s a three week period where if you work at an Apple store, it’s all hands on deck. Either they’re preparing for the big Groundhog Day shopping season OR something big and very much in demand is coming to Apple stores. And we can all pretend it’s something other than the Verizon iPhone but come on. That’s what it is. Unless it’s the iPad 2 but I doubt that’s ready yet.
