MacDailyNews Take: Congrats, Sydneysiders, Edmontonians, and Tacomans! Enjoy your brand new Apple Stores!


  1. Understood.

    I, for my own part, have given up on my home adventures – as a source of income, at least – as many of you know.

    Thank God, I have rarely ever had to travel to the east. New Jersey blows!!!

  2. The Bondi Junction store is very cool and probably halfway in size between a mall store and a full-sized one. It does indeed have living trees in it, growing under a glass roof.

    The place was packed with hundreds of people and too many staff to count. They had also had both private security and police there to keep things in check but it was a very friendly atmosphere.

    I had to laugh at 3 students who were hoping to strike a deal to buy 3 iPads at once only to be firmly but politely rebuffed. Nice try!

    I can tell you one thing – when I am in the office, it is with a great sense of smug superiority that I brandish my iPad. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” />

  4. The symbolism couldn’t be more apparent.

    From Bondi blue iMac to Bondi Apple Store.
    From Beleaguered Apple to the biggest tech company.

    What a long journey! It’s been interesting, Jobs.
