  1. Will there be someone there who can tell me how to work around about a dozen serious bugs in iPhoto and iMovie?

    If so, I’ll stand in line for as long as it takes to get inside.

    But, I don’t want to be fooled – I really want someone with an Apple paycheck to say if the company is ever going to support anything else in iLive like they do iTunes.

    I deserve honesty. If they won’t make them ‘just work’ why don’t they just drop all the other parts of iLife?

  2. I’m going to be in there like swim wear! leaving work early that day or might even call out sick! it’s going to be a beautiful day to be there finally another apple store closer to me than the Soho Store.

  3. John L. “Johnny” Pierson: “Will someone please say why all the hype about another Apple store? You would think it was really something when, except for the 24 hr operation, it’s no different from all the others, is it?”

    This one goes to 11.
