Apple Cube Unpeeling Night

Oh, can’t I just have a single day without being interested in something Apple-related? Can’t I just be a normal person and obsess over which pseudo-gilded-throated pop-tune warbler wins American Idol?

No, I can’t. In fact, I’d rather widen my eyes over pics of the new MacBook than delight my senses with the overmodulated stylings of pre-chanteuse Aimeelee Justhitthenotesplease of Stogie, Illinois.

Today, I am eye-widening over the unveiling of the glass cube at Apple’s new store on 5th Avenue in New York. The store officially opens tomorrow, but here’s a lovely collection of photos and articles for perusal.

It’s good to see I’m not alone in my fascination; it is also comforting to know I’m not even in the top tier of Apple lunatickery. Though I bet you if I had the time and money to jet off to such an opening, I would kill with my own well-produced, well-edited, wry and humorous video podcast of the proceedings!

Apple Cube Head-On

ifoAppleStore: Countdown update with links to pics (first set here) and videos. Nice headroom there, sir!

Flickr: Photo sets by Dave Thorup, Dan Dickinson, and neps. Can I mention here how horrible I think the Flickr interface is? It utterly sucks. Visiting Flickr always gets me frustrated. I am so pleased to be able to send you there three times!

MacWorld: Badly re-sized pictures and a press preview write-up.

Finally, this store is going to be open 24/7/365. Like on the Internet, but without all that convenient not leaving your chair stuff.


Time for more links!
