    Apple HQ is only a 10 minute drive from my house so I thought, what the hey, I'll just go down there and see what it's like.

    I got really excited when I saw this out front, it was almost as exciting as Disneyland...

    Looks like they are patriotic!

    It's kinda funny... the sign says "visitors" but your not allowed into the building without proper identification.

    ...So I proceeded to... well... the "Company Store".

    The security in this apple store is not very secure! There's no glass panels or anything, the iPods are just stacked on the shelves, as you can see in this picture.

    Alas, I made my way over to the Macs.

    I only expected to find generic happy music on the computer but to my surprise I found one song by "Between the Buried and Me" on the computer called "Alaska". It was labeled as "Rock" but I quickly fixed that!

    I didn't take a picture of it, but I got a shirt that says "I visited the mothership." and it has an apple logo on the back.

    And, one extra note... if your going to Apple HQ, don't bring your blackberry you'll feel like an outsider.

    Congratulations. I wish to one day to do the same!

    Fanboys are required to make a pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime, and pray five times daily, while facing the "holy place"

    Honestly, it wasn't that exciting. Only go there if you know someone who works inside so you can get your hands on a "visitor" badge.
