Apple to take sales space in posh people's shop Harrods

Toffs to tune in to iTech

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Harrods moles say the Cupertino giant's shop-in-a-shop will, however, sport all of Apple's iconic iTech, 9to5Mac reports.

It's not the first time Apple has been in Harrods. Back in the early 1990s, the posh shop played host to one enterprising local retailer's small Mac concession for some years.
