Finally getting to share the One Infinite Loop Apple Store opening photos. Was a busy weekend dropping off both kids to their different Universities (empty nest, woo-hoo & cry).

As usual, Apple really treats us line-waiting minions well - Free food, water, coffee, sunscreen, umbrellas to use. I loved the coffee backpack.

Inside was a party, and more lines. They had the new iPhone case colors & watch band colors. I liked the Apple Watch band display mimicking the Activity rings.

behaveshp, everyone looks so young, didn't you feel a bit out of place?

Thanks for the pics!



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

I enjoyed those pictures. Any previews of the new stuff there? iPad Pro?

I guess the stores do their job. Every time I go into one, I feel like buying something. I never do, but I feel like it.

I liked the old company store.

Sedate.

Mostly apparel with the occasional piece of collector's cr@p displayed above a shirt-rack. A little island of anachronism in a storm of glossy tech.

Seems to me that a little piece of history has been paved over.

Those are actually middle-aged people, tired after a long day. You get transformed into what you see in the pic once you step inside.

Haven't you heard? Silicon Valley is a bit like Logan's Run, everyone over 50 is asked to leave.

I get my walking papers next year... old fogey smiley

In the 1990s and before the retail stores started, they also had an excellent selection of 3rd party Mac software on the shelf for sale.

And although they displayed them, they did not sell computers there back then, I don't know if that changed now they the made it a model for the retail store.
