Why Apple's 'indoor GPS' plan is brilliant.

Apple's iBeacons system will enable purchases, contextual marketing, automated check-ins and much more: http://goo.gl/18ALZI

Nearly a year and a half ago, I predicted that Apple was hatching a "secret plan to kill the cash register." Well, iBeacons is that plan. 

iBeacons is a Bluetooth-based micro-locations system (think very accurate GPS that can be used indoors). But instead of being used by people to determine their own locations, it's used by retailers, museums and businesses of all kinds to find out exactly where people are, so they can automatically serve up highly relevant interactions to customers' phones.

I think Apple's approach will not only kill cash registers, but NFC, too. 

Here's what iBeacons is all about and why it's a stroke of genius on Apple's part:

Hi +University of the Philippines . I would just like to ask if UP is doing something about Apple's iTunes U program? This I believe is another and better tool both for Teachers (course material building & distribution) and Students. Computers had been a part of UP education but with new touch input devices like iPads and iPhones, I would really like to see UP get on board with this as I can really see this is the future of education.
iTunes U gives educators an easy way to design complete courses with audio, video, and other content and distribute them through the iTunes U app.
