Best of the Best – Reviews here are kinda old.
You all know how the Apple Store is World class and the products spank the competition on iPads and iPhones.
Just wanted to register my many years of satisfaction and say that Steve Jobs is a magnificent legend to all of us in the great USA. Steve will be dearly missed for so many unique reasons.
DO NOT use Apple Store computers for email or any other personal accounts – Hundreds of people go into the Apple store playing with computers. Many of them login into their personal accounts: email, banking, etc. For a while I was aware of a browser logout issues. Many users just close the browser thinking that will log them out. It does not! When I open browser and go to Yahoomail, often someone will be logged in. I log them out. Once I saw that there was really important information in emails, judging by email titles, so before exiting I first sent user an email from her own account saying she should be careful with public computers, or something like that.
Today I logged into my Gmail using 'PRIVATE BROWSING' option, then LOGGED OUT, than CLOSED A BROWSER. I reopened it just to be sure, and to my great surprise, I WAS STILL LOGGED IN! I called a Senior Assistant Manager Joseph Adams, and explained my concern about the (lack of) security of my private information, and that it was still accessible to others. With a weird smile on his face (which seemed as if he knew what was going on with computers), Joseph Adams 'explained' me that after RESTARTING A COMPUTER (which they do every evening after all users leave the store), data will be erased. I was not happy with that answer, and started explaining that browsers should function well without the need to restart computer. Without that anyone can read private information of all people using Apple Store computers. Anyone can as well misuse that information. He restarted computer in front of me. As I was very upset with this problem, in a slightly louder voice I was insisting that something has to be done about this. He threatened to call police and said I need to leave the store.
I called police telling them that Apple Store employees are manipulating computers so that users cannot log out, and that security of private information is violated. They answered me that until someone uses that information to steal money or do some other criminal act, they cannot do anything about it!?!?
A premier store on Magnificent Mile to buy anything Apple. – The Scene
Sleek and stylized after its hi-tech wares, this two-story emporium offers more than what's on display. An army of T-shirt-clad technophiles are ever-present to answer questions, but unobtrusive as you fiddle with an impressive collection of polished gadgetry. Upstairs, the Genius Bar, manned by a dozen or so "Mac Geniuses," offers in-store advice and fixes, while a mini-theatre showcases a series of infomercials and workshops. Internet access, wired and wireless, is available to all customers free of charge.
Only the sharpest, cutting-edge technology here, Apple and otherwise. The store carries the full range of its namesake products and accessories in addition to a substantial array of printers, scanners, digital cameras and camcorders, and Palm items. Software, top-title games and books also have their fair share of shelf space, though not nearly as much as their hardware counterparts.
