photos: apple store, natick collection

Friday, September 7, 2007   

Great turnout! Apologies for the quality of the photos... I took them with my cellphone. I took a bunch with an iPhone and tried to set up my .Mac email and Gmail accounts on it to send them to myself, but for whatever reason the verification of the accounts didn't work. I wonder if the display models stop that. The default .Mac account on the iPhones was set up wrong & couldn't send email. Poop.

The Natick Collection opening had a big marching band playing down the hall from the Apple Store... I didn't have to look far to find the Apple Store because of all the applause and cheering before the doors opened.

The layout of the store is very nice, much better organized than the others I have been to. Oh -- and they were selling iPhones as if they were almost free. While I was playing around on one, at least five were sold right next to me. Swipe a card through the reader & people were done, not having to visit the registers in the back. A few employees were walking around with boxes just so they didn't have to go to the back to get iPhones to sell. It was nuts. I'll bet within the hour they sell thirty (30) of them. I am not exaggerating here at all.

T-shirts in the white boxes with the silver sticker seal on them per usual. The crowd was indeed mostly older as kids are in school. I'll bet the store some mad business this weekend. Overall the mall expansion is extremely nice and they laid down hardwood flooring on the whole top level. The Natick Mall just got swankified.
