Apple Will Charge $US500 For Geniuses To Fix Business IT Issues

Aimed at small businesses, Apple’s Joint Venture will cost $US499 for five users annually, with additional users being tacked on for $US99 each. The (likely) tax-deductible cost will save hapless office managers from schlepping into Apple stores and waiting for Geniuses there, and with any luck strike the foolish IT guy from the payroll, too.

It’s expected to be formally announced tomorrow at Apple’s iPad 2 event. Will it be the “one more thing”? It’ll be disappointing if that’s all it is. [BGR and BusinessInsider]
