Ron Johnson, Apple's former senior vice president of retail operations, is planning an on-demand delivery service for gadgets, MacRumors said on Tuesday, citing an initial report from The Information's Jessica Lessin.

Lessin described the high-end delivery service as "Best Buy's Geek Squad meets Apple's Genius Bar."
