Apple prepping retail staff ahead of WWDC keynote?

updated 07:48 pm EDT, Wed May 30, 2012

Some staff said to be asked to work late on June 5

Apple is reportedly preparing some of its retail staff to work late shifts ahead of the company's Worldwide Developers Conference. Unnamed sources have also told AppleInsider company representatives arrived unannounced at some retail locations, using access codes and keys to gain entry to the local server rooms. The Cupertino staffers allegedly brought a mysterious "black box" and briefly locked themselves in the server rooms without further explanation.

Separate sources have reportedly told ifoAppleStore that certain staffers at a Texas Apple Store were asked to work late on June 5. The reasons for extended shifts remain unclear, though the company is not expected to unveil any new products, if any, until the WWDC keynote the following week on June 11. Speculation points to a possible rearrangement of floor items or a signage change.

Apple is rumored to be working on a number of new products, including a significant refresh to the MacBook Pro lineup that will bring retina displays and thinner builds. Other reports point to a new Maps app in iOS 6, photo sharing functionality for iCloud, and a new Apple TV OS.

    Ah the iCar!

    Will be one of the most elegant thoughtfully designed cars ever made,
    Modern design museums will fight over the first few mockups,
    The lines on the Mac Dealerships will be kilo-metric and last weeks,

    It will only be fueled by the special Mac Only Energy system,
    Will only ply Appstore music choices,
    Only show OpenSource maps on it's GPS,
    Become completely obsolete right after the next model shows up,
    and of course due to a programming glitch - it too will track your every move!
