Apple Says No to MySpace at Retail

Apple has banned access to MySpace at their retail stores, but not for the conventional reasons of keeping employees productive. The ban deals with loitering customers…

An Apple Store employee (who does not work in the Fifth Avenue store), confirmed to CNET that this has been an ongoing problem. “MySpace is a big issue for the Apple stores because people come in, Photobooth themselves (using Macs’ built-in webcams), then stick their picture up on their MySpace account and loiter at machines for hours,” the source said in an e-mail. “It is especially troublesome at the flagships and high-volume stores, and for a while there was no official word on how to deal with it.”

In some of the Apple flagship stores where traffic is extremely high, having people hang out all day without buying anything is bad for business.
