Well, here I am at the Apple Store in Peabody, MA. That’s a picture of me that I just took with a camera that’s hooked up to this computer.
The coolest thing about this store is that everything is set up for customers to use. You can take pictures, shoot videos, run software. And all of the machines are connected to really fast Internet.
This approach to retail makes all other computer stores look like car dealers who won’t let you take the cars for a test drive (little mac shoppe excepted, of course).
Maybe I’ll go shoot a video now…
It’s amazing how amazing this all is; it represents the de-geekification of computing, taking their sales from the back alleys and grotty sweat-soaked dork-brothels into the modern age. Computers as towels. Or hammers. Or cartons of milk. Bravo, Apple.
Gotta go check out the iPod and then start the long ride home to Canada.
