THE APPLE STORE, SYDNEY HAS OPENED. Some stats about the store It is the 2nd largest apple store in the world after the one in Regent Street, London. It has the largest Genius Bar in the world It cost $15 million AU to build It had the largest Grand opening attendance for a retail shop in Australia's history. It has the largest single pane of glass in the world UPDATE: I'll be going to a Getting Started with Mac workshop in the Apple Store on 12 July during my school holidays. I'll let you guys know how it goes. I JOINED THE QUEUE TO GET IN AT ABOUT 4:40, AND THOSE WHO WORK IN THE CITY, THE QUEUE STRETCHED FROM THE CORNER OF GEORGE STREET TO KING STREET, UP KING STREET, AND DOWN YORK STREET, AND THEN FINALLY ENDED UP AT MARKET STREET. SO BASICALLY THE QUEUE, WENT AROUND CLOSE TO A BLOCK. I IFNALLY GOT INTO THE STORE AT EXACTLY 6, AND AT THE DOOR, THERE WERE AROUND 10 APPLE STAFF HI-FIVING ME, AND I FELT LIKE A MOVIE STAR. THERE WERE LIKE 15 OF EACH APPLE PRODUCT IN THE STORE(E.G 15 15 MACBOOK AIR'S, 15, IPOD TOUCHES, ETC.) NEXT I WENT UP THE GLASS STAIRCASE, AND IT WAS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. I WENT UP THE STAIRS TO THE SECOND LEVEL, AND GUESS WHO I SAW?? MARSHA HINES(AUSTRALIAN IDOL JUDGE) I TALKED WITH HER A BIT, AND SAID HELLO. AFTER THAT, I WENT TO THE 3RD LEVEL WITH THE GENIUS BAR, AND SAW LIKE 20 "GENIUS's" SITTING AT THIS MASSIVE TABLE, TALKING TO CUSTOMERS ABOUT ISSUES THEY HAD WITH THEIR MACS, ETC. THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE WAS DEFINETLY WORTHWHILE, AND I WOULD LOVE TO GO TO THE STORE AGAIN. OH, AND I RECIEVED A FREE T-SHIRT. I WENT ON EBAY, AND FOUND PEOPLE WERE SELLING THEM FOR OVER $60. I WAS THINKING OF SELLING MINE, BUT THOUGHT OTHERWISE.
