Apple is confirming that it will indeed be opening its own store in Singapore. While that news in itself is already cause for jubilation among Apple fans in the country, it has also far reaching implications as well. For one, it will be the first Apple Store to break ground in a Southeast Asian country. For another, like the Apple's operations in the US and China, it will be running on renewable energy. This will make Apple the first company in Singapore to run exclusively on green energy, strengthening Cupertino's image among environment friendly companies.
