Apple has a new program available through their brick & mortar stores, called ‘one to one‘. For $99 a year, you can schedule sessions with an Apple Store employee – my guess is it’ll be a Creative, who teaches the general store classes – to assist you with everything from using iPhoto and making a book, to movie making, podcasting, and so on. The service is tailored toward all levels of user, from the new Switcher to the grizzled veteran who’s looking for something new to put into their latest project.
Members of the one to one program can schedule sessions up to 14 days out. For only $99 a year, I’d say getting a personalized instructor for all your software and media-based questions is a smokin deal.
