Went to the Apple Store in New York. Very good, of course. In some ways. I particulary liked the way that they'd made it feel like a public, shared space. People were checking their email and browsing for porn on the display computers. And they were lounging around plugged into the wall and using the airport network. And there's a theatre space upstairs where people are demoing products the whole time.
And they have great ideas like apple camp. Where kids can learn stuff about stuff and things. In the store, blah blah blah. All the incredibly obvious retail things which no-one ever does.
Of course the fatal flaw is that it's really hard to actually buy anything. There are always long queues at the sales desk and you're not quite sure who you have to ask to get something, can you just pick one up or do you have to ask someone, and do they have any mini-ipods or not? So, apart from the actual act of buying stuff, one of the best stores ever.
