I have always noticed the really cool background images that CompUSA displays in motion on all the Cinema Displays in the store. They are always really high-res and entertaining. Does anyone know what im talkin about? It may just be the store that I go to, but the employee told me Apple sends them all those. Does anyone have any idea where to find something like this?? Thanks!

Find out when the Apple Rep comes in and ask him if he can give them to you. Not sure about your CompUSA, but at the one I work at the Apple Rep is in almost everyday. I think that is supposed to be the new program, but they may not have one at your store yet.

the closest compusa is an hour and a half away, and the closest apple store is like 4 hours, I suppose all i can do is hope someone can help me when i go there next? I was hoping there was like a site or something that had all of apples fun stuff. I think that the background images they were using were from like sample images apple gave them for iphoto. Maybe that helps??

Thanks!

they were using the images from iphoto, with the change picture every 5 seconds feature, but they were images that apple sent them to use. Nothing that comes with OSX, they are kinda like the material you always see steve present with @ keynotes. It has me stumped.

Oh, I thought you were talking about the demos that they run on them. One of the new ones is about the "iLifestyle" or something like that. Yeah those images, are just ones they load on to demo iPhoto. Unfortunately, it doesn't change my advice about talking to the Apple Rep. I don't think they are available online anywhere. And FYI, since you said they looked like hi-res pics, the ones I have looked at were 1600x1200 resolution.

I guess a better way to help explain what im talkin about is actually on their site. http://www.apple.com/lae/iphoto/ its not those photos, but the idea is what im trying to present. hopefully that helps?

Apple sends material out for retail for demo purposes. What your talking about is a demo libraryabout 1.2 gigs in size. Standard reseller material.

If it is their screensaver, then it should be easy. Just find the pictures they're using and email them to yourself through webmail, provided that CompUSA is wired. I know the Apple Stores are...

Or a USB flash drive, FireWire drive, iPod, etc... You should be able to get into the System Preferences for that, as it's a per user thing, unlike changing startup disks or something like that.
