New York


The annual NYC holiday trip included the Fifth Avenue Apple store where we were told by street security the sales at this store in October neared $700,000 a day and current holiday shopping sales per day are double that!

I have always wanted to visit this store. Just the store. Because it’s special to me. Call me crazy! I enjoy it’s unusual architecture, watching many people enjoying the apple brand experience and the main reason, it is the MECCA for a long-time Mac user like me.

This photo gallery shows the store in its finest.

I am amazed at the Mac phenomenon and proud of it, as if I helped birth its success. Being a Mac user for almost 20 years allows me the honor. Us Mac users have been through trials and tribulations over the years but have remained devoted. It warms my heart to view many people willing to wait on line to get in to this store. This truly is a phenomenon.

    Cathy,
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/12/07/AR2007120700617_2.html?wpisrc=newsletter

    You will SO appreciate this article! (edited to say . . . written as I’m reading the first few paragraphs.) How interesting that it comes on the heels of our NY Apple Store experience! What great pix, BTW.

    It’s not often that I have to look up a word in a Washington Post article, for heaven’s sake! But bodhisattva certainly brought me up sharp, and I had to go see what it’s all about. Wikipedia to the rescue: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bodhisattva

    Or gosh, now that I’m on page 2 of this story, maybe you won’t like it so much. In fact, you may actually hate it. Hmmm, back to the article.

    So, now, on page 3, I confess, I’m bored to tears and I simply can’t finish this article. I’d be interested in knowing whether Apple Aficionados find it fascinating. If so, somebody please post and let me know how it ends. Meantime, I have to go to bed.
