Curious myself I performed a Google search which led me to a .mac public folder containing a "DesktopButtons.pkg" file. Problem is, I can't check it out since I'm traveling with my work PC only. It does, however, contain a readme file which makes it seem like the real thing:
Apple Store Desktop Buttons Installer
You will need to know your 3-digit store number to perform this installation.
To remove the Desktop Buttons application from a computer:
run the installer again
when prompted for the store number, press the Uninstall button instead.
The Desktop Buttons application puts a group of four buttons on the computer's desktop. These allow the customer to:
make a reservation for the Genius Bar
open iCal to view a calendar of store events
view the Apple Web Site for more information
sign up for a mailing list or reserve a product which is currently out of stock
If you need to quit the Desktop Buttons application temporarily, you can run the Quit_DesktopButtons AppleScript in the "/Library/DesktopButtons" folder.
To run the DesktopButtons application again, launch it from the
"/Library/DesktopButtons" folder or restart your computer.
Now, it can't be that difficult to guess a valid 3-digit store number, can it?
Someone try it out and let us know if it works:http://homepage.mac.com/WebObjects/F...cty=US&lang=en
