I couldn’t help pass up this article:
After launching a new iPhone trade in program through its retail stores in the U.S and UK and another initiative in India, Apple appears to be planning even more trade-in programs in emerging markets. A new job listing posted on the company’s website seeking a Reuse (Trade-In) Worldwide Program Manager is looking for someone to assist in “developing and implementing programs in emerging markets, with emphasis in APAC and ALAC, while enhancing current EMEIA and North American programs.”
What’s next? Will this reach a point where it qualifies as collateral in a repo transaction? Ha!
Apple sounds like they want something more than Ebay. Will we be able to place our buy/sell orders in our local E*Trade accounts? Hmm..
