  1. Baybrook Mall is between Houston and Galveston. More specifically, it’s *VERY* close to NASA’s Johnson Space Center and all the money that the employee/residents in that area represent. While you may not know where it is, this store opening represents Apple’s strategic thinking at its best.

  2. The mailing address is Friendswood because the mall is on the west side of I-45 – the east side is inside the City of Houston limits, or the limits of the small town of Webster. Thanks to Houston annexing property, the post office addresses get nice and confused.

    The good news is that with the CompUSA closing, and the iPhone coming, this should be a huge store for all of the NASA area, the petrochemical plants on this side of town, all of the development in Galveston County, Brazoria County, etc. The nearest Apple store is the Galleria store about 30 minutes away so it will help sales.

    Baybrook Mall is the second highest trafficked mall in all of greater Houston, so this should be a prime spot. Since I live about two miles away, I’ll be in line – I’ll have my Steelers chair with me ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” />

    MDN Magic Word “question” – don’t question the store being there, just come buy something from it ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” />

  3. Hey Bizarro Balmer I have seen some Macs here at NASA but you have “justify” their use. I have been using my own personal laptop doing IT work for the ESCG contract and now that NASA is not allowing personal machines on their network I cannot get them to approve the use of Macs….so the wincrap culture is still extremely strong here and the admins do not want to support them.

  4. I can’t belive they’re opening a store in a place called FriendsWood right next to a space center called Johnson, and 90% of the posts are about windows and NASA and the fact that friendswood is actually right next to Houston. What’s wrong with you people.
