    I sense an event announcement coming.

    Wow! Some features that actually make sense and should have been released long ago.

    Someone's gonna do it, so I'll save you all the trouble:

    STILL no iPad app?

    Still no iPad support... weird.

    I think there is no iPad app for it because the apple store website works very well for the iPad since it is such a bigger screen. So it is kind of a waste.

    How about push notifications for when apps have version update available?

    I understand that. I would just assume if you created the iPad you would make an iPad app for the Store. Its easier to set a genius appointment from a ipad or a iphone with the app other than use Safari

    I just checked out the upgrade eligibility page of the new Apple Store app.

    Verizon just changed my upgrade pricing date from May 21, 2014 to September 20, 2014.

    Yup, looks like Verizon is already instituting its policy change on upgrades going from 20 months to full 24 months (like contracts).

    Are they not aware that if they let people wait until they're contract-free before they can upgrade that a lot of people may just walk away and go somewhere else?

    Either they are and simply don't care, or they aren't and still simply don't care.

    Having an Apple store within 5 miles of home, along with this app, has made it easy and fast to buy online, then pick it up at the store. I've used it many times, it's a real time saver.

    In addition, Personal Pickup is a handy system they have setup as well.

    When I order a BTO/CTO MBP I have it delivered to the store, that way I can go in at anytime during the day to pick it up.

    Interesting thought. It's much more charitable than my conclusion that they are just too complacent and haven't heard enough complaints yet to optimize it for one of their biggest profit driving products. I appreciate it when someone shines a light on the method to the madness. Thanks.
