Where Apple's Go to Die

    Newer Older

    I passed by an old Apple Store today. I used to pass by this store back when I was still in highschool. I used to admire the macs they had on display and always beg my parents to buy me one.. which they never did. Surprisingly the store hasn't changed much. It was freaky checking out the place from the outside. It's as if the shop was stuck in its own time-zone. The shop seems to have been closed ages ago. A thick layer of dust sits on top of everything. What struck me the most though were the "Think Different" banners. They're gorgeous and seeing them in the store window gathering dust and being unappreciated pissed me off. The place felt like a graveyard. In a way it was, the rainbow logo, the beige machines, the old Think Different banners, the Garamond typeface, etc. That's the Apple that existed when I first started using Macs, and its all gone now. On a brighter note, I read that an Official Apple Store will be opening in March here in Kuwait. That should prove to be interesting.

      I saw your pics on tuaw.com/

      What a shame. I am sure there are many people who would love to get their hands on an offical apple banner.

      Have you seen any iPods in Kuwait?
