Apple has reportedly slowed hiring of Geniuses at its retail stores

Geniuses, the fine folks at Apple retail stores that are supposed to know all the ins and outs of the company's latest devices in an effort to help with any troubleshooting needs a customer might have, are a staple. They've been around for so long, it's just an expectation to get help from a Genius when you set up an appointment to get a device fixed or otherwise checked out. But it sounds like Apple is slowing down on hiring this particular member of the staff.
