  1. C’mon Apple! We need another store to go along with the 6 or 7 we already have in Southern California! I mean, I have to drive 15 minutes to get to an Apple Store!

  2. New “Get a Mac” ads airing!

    Wow. Without even being posted on the Apple Website, the ads that had previously only been shown in Apple Stores is now airing. It was the “Psychiatrist” one.
