Day 283: Chewing an Apple Very, Very Slowly

I didn’t know that the shopping experience could be exactly the same as a theme park experience. Well maybe not exactly the same—there are no thrill rides or large turkey drumsticks—but close. It may just be because we are in the Apple Store.

Firstly you do have to stay there for a very long time—make the most of the experience. Then there is lots and lots of walking. That’s because we are multi-tasking and visiting all the other stores in the centre that we need to look at while we wait for the thing to sync. Then there is the eye-opening wonder of all the things to look at. I haven’t spent a lot of time in an Apple Store before. There is a lot of stuff in there that isn’t the latest iPhone or iPad. I have already bought one thing I didn’t need—a Fitbit, which one of the blue smurf staff members is just talking about with someone else and saying is the best—yay!—but hopefully we won’t be here too much longer because I will start to shop again. There is also a great opportunity to people watch. And not just ordinary people—people buying technology. (Someone just pulled out a first generation iPad, for example, and the smurf said ‘Wow, vintage!’) The particularly cute ones are the grans and grampas going from maybe having a colour TV at home to the latest iPad in one foul swoop. It’s tantamount to having to get a new computer-operated arm. A complete change of thinking. They have a look of wonder, but also, understandably, a look of fear. Imagine being born at the other end of last century and seeing all the things that have happened to this world since. I am sure no generation will have had in the past, or will in the future, such a radical change in everything. Everything. It is quite staggering to consider. But in the meantime, if you don’t hear from me for a couple of days could you please send a rescue squad to get us out of here: I have a trip to go on, and technically I also need to go to work.

  1. I always see the line ups for the Apple Stores and it just blows my mind. Although I work on a Mac most of the time now and I bought an iPhone I am no fan of the brand. I was "told" it would be my saving grace…the best thing since sliced bread. After over 2 years with the imac I'm still waiting for the miracle. There are as many issues with my Mac as I had with my PC but the Mac is quasi impossible to fix on my own, unlike the PC.

    Just to think that only 20 years ago we didn't need to have any of this technology, and now we are slaves to it.

    Have a safe trip!
