I went to the Apple Store this evening (ok, before my collective audience groans about my addiction to ‘the apple’ – give me a second) and I saw something amazing…
Of all the times I’ve been to the Apple Store, here in NYC, it’s always been busy but never as busy as it was tonight. This place was packed – and I mean ‘the day after Thanksgiving’ packed. In addition to the mile long line to checkout – there were four Apple Specialists in the four corners of the store at ‘kiosks’ selling iPhones and the new models of the iPod Touch.
I’ve never add this thought before – in such a peciluar manner:
Have we finally become an iNation – perhaps the ‘United States of Apple’?
I enjoy Apple and the consumer electronics they put out, but I was just amazed how much Apple is beginning to envelope the country – even if the Microsofties don’t want to admit it… It’s odd how Apple is becoming as much of a fashion trend as much as it is a technology trend.
BTW: I’ve begun using my new iPod Shuffle and let me tell you – it’s iTastic!
