Best Buy mini stores, Lego customized people, and Apple auctions Steve Jobs’ computer
Best Buy is testing out a downsized version of its store. The company is opening "digital-first" store today near Charlotte. It’s much smaller than a regular best buy. There’s a curated selection of items, but no large appliances. Shoppers could purchase items by scanning a QR code.
Lego is testing a new way to create a little version of yourself. The "mini-figure factory" lets users select different body parts and accessories, choose from a laptop, a pizza, or a tennis racket among others. Your mini-figure will cost about $12 but only one per household.
A historic computer that once belonged to late Apple co- founder Steve Jobs is up for auction. The Apple One, a 1976 prototype, was hand soldered by Jobs’ one time partner, Steve Wozniak. It’s expected to sell for at least five hundred thousand dollars.
