Just like the Windows Phone? LOL

If you want to bash Apple, at least back a decent OS: Android.

Haters gonna hate.
Lol at windows phone, are you smoking? Windows mango update blows away ios5 offering and has equal footing with androids icecream sandwich. The iphone is only popular due to the device being a cultural pop Icon. Also the iphone and other apple devices are simple and easy to use any from a baby to an old person who is about to die can use ios. Ios sucks the os looks the same after 5 years. Android and windows phone both look futuristic and bleeds technology. Why would I want a phone that is only used by old people, Asian Americans, soccer moms, homosexuals, hipsters, thugs, and icult. I have nothing against these people but ios feels old. Also with iphone and others apple devices a User has a great chance of becoming a victim of robbery or burglary due to apples highs resale of its devicezls

Tacky. I honestly think of Grand Central as one of the very few landmarks from way back. Obviously since they started turning the whole place with non-essential shops, it just ruins the whole atmosphere.

It's basically turning into Penn Station.

Apple releases new of the same every year.

Look at gaming systems. Playstation 1 1994, P2 2000, P3 2006, P3 Redesigned 2009. 6 Years.
You can't compare gaming systems with tablets. The hardware jumps are much, much bigger and, aside from very limited backwards compatibility, the software is proprietary to the hardware version. Dell makes new laptops every 6 months. Does that make the 6 month old one obsolete? It's only obsolete when it can't run new software. The iPad 1 will still run 99% of what the iPad 2 will run. There's absolutely no reason to think iPad 2 will be obsolete. Only in your own head.

Apple's not the only tablet company to release a new tablet every year. Motorola, Samsung, etc. do it too.

We have a technology forum for discussions of various devices sold by Apple, and other competing manufacturers. This thread refers to a specific Apple Store in Manhattan. Please confine discussions to the impact of the new store in Grand Central, not on the products sold, and whether or not one likes them. Thank you.

Ah good, another store. Maybe my annoying co-workers can go there for customer instead of bugging me when their computer illiteracy causes incidental problems:

them: "WAAAHH! My ipad won't check my email.." *pouts* *stomps foot* *shoves ipad under my nose* "Fix it!!!"

me: "Looks like you haven't configured your email server settings. Do you know if your email server uses SMTP or POP3 protocol?"

them: *vacant stare* "What does POP3 mean? Is it like, a soda?"


So I will cross my fingers and hope the new store opening will lessen scenarios like that.

The atmosphere of what? A waiting room? What's the problem with having a mixed use building? It creates a diversity of users and revenue sources and makes the entire complex more viable. They've restored one of the architectural treasures of the city and made it more vibrant than ever.

Why all the resentment towards Apple and Apple users? You do realize that if it wasn't for Apple, OSs such as Windows and Android would not event exist or would be significantly worse than they are now, right? Even something like Windows Phone Mango, which looks and works very differently than iOS, would not exist.

About the Apple Store, the ones on Fifth Avenue and the UWS have been great additions to those areas and I expect the new one to do the same for GCT. I'm not enamored of huge corporations wanting to sell you stuff you don't really need - and Apple, like all its competitors, are admittedly just that - but there's no denying that the Apple Store concept is pure genius. Where else can you go to get your computer fixed and catch a jazz concert simultaneously? Yes, you guessed correctly. You can do that at some Apple Stores. I've been to a couple of jazz concerts at the UWS one. How can you not love a concept like that, even if you loathe consumerism.
