  1. Awesome…for the once a year (or less) I would actually use it. Or maybe Apple hopes with this app update to better draw people like me (wishers on a student budget) into impulsively buying stuff more frequently by making it even more of a snap to do.

  2. As a Senior Apple product manager, I hope you will enjoy the freebies we are giving away to the first 1000 visitors at each of our stores on Sunday.
