Apple knows how to do it

32 posts in this topic

You have to hand it to Steve Jobs, he knows how to attract attention to Apple. The new NYC store opens at 6 PM this evening, it is on Fifth Ave. between 58th and 59th Street--a fantastic location--and it will be open 24/7/365. It's subterranean, but you can't miss it--here's a photo of the entrance, a 3-story high glass cube.

I think the big question here is... can they throw stones in there or not?

This may seem kinda redundant, but where is the inventory? The cash registers? The employees????

Never mind. Missed the word "subterranean." Go back to what you were doing.

sub·ter·ra·ne·an - adj. - Situated or operating beneath the earth's surface; underground. :P

I wouldn't necessarily say it's original, but it's cool. Reminds me of the entrance to the Louvre:

Also kinda reminds me of those Smart Car towers that are scattered about Europe:

Mac people do not have a need for bathrooms, Greg.

You just click on the toilet icon.*

*OS X 10.4.2 or later :g

Yeah, iToilet is one of my favorite new Dashboard widgets. Be warned, though- there's a software bug which prevents the valve from closing every time, and you have to jiggle the handle. Version 1.0.2 will fix it, but you've gotta stay home between 8 am and 5 pm on the day of the repair. <_<

I walked by tonight after I got out of work (around 10PM). There was what looked like a four to five hour wait just to get into the store. Even worse than the Union Square Trader Joe's. The entrance is even more impressive in person than in the pictures.

It's also impressive from down there...

See for yourself.

They have a bar down there? Niiiiiiice!!! :tup

I might be wrong, but if that store is anything like the SF store, the "Genius Bar" only serves beverages of the liquid crystal variety. I think it's basically a place where you can play with gadgets they've set up along the bar.

Looks like a very cool place. The MacBooks released a few days ago also look very cool. We may be picking one up for my wife this weekend; here in hotel rooms we're fighting over my iBook constantly, we really need another computer!

I dropped by the store this morning to buy an Airport Express. Here are some pictures I took...

Here's a closer look at the bridge--the amazing thing is that this is only a block away from the Apple store. New York is a great city.
