Mobile POS is a hot topic in retail right now. So hot in fact, that research firm IHL Group is predicting North American retailers will spend more than $2 billion on mobile POS hardware and software in 2013.
Last month, iQmetrix Retail Summit alumnus Doug Stephens posted an interesting blog post on how careers in retail have changed, and in some respects, are going extinct.
He recalls hearing Walmart U.S. President Bill Simon talk at NRF back in January, saying "retail was still a great career to embark on. He reflected on his own career path, and that he put himself through college on the $2.00 an hour he earned as a young man, implying that today's young retail worker should be able to do the same."
