  1. 24/7 could be helpful for those NY design firms pulling an all-nighter that suddenly need extra hardware or accessories. Not everyone keeps spares and back-ups (as they should).

    This should be a boon for business. Very classy.

  2. Off topic, maybe, but on Amazon’s top seller list for desktop computers 2 of the top ten are books to help Winblows users figure out how to use the arcane mess of an OS and deal with its Swiss-cheese security holes. Sad, really sad.

  4. Anyone else think Apple should scrap it’s (Boston, MA) Boylston Street Store idea and open one on Mass Ave and Newbury St. in the soon to be vacant Virgin Record Store… would kind of be ironic… out with the old (plastic media) in with the new (digital media). The location would be great “… the landmark Frank Gehry building where luxury condominiums are opening this fall…” – Boston Globe: MacDailyNews
