LOL @ all the people who claim Apple has lost its way based on a PHOTO.

Oh well.

You want a flagship Apple store. I want Disney World and Universal Studios Kids like Disneyland, not Apple store.

Apple has to build a bigger, flashier store across the street from Samsung?
It won't help for long term. I think Samsung will be the smartphone winner in China market. I don't think Chinese are loyal Apple fanboys, they know Apple stuffs are made in China.

Chinese like freedom, many of those like piracy too. iOS is not a platform for them. Apple is just a contemporary high fashion in China.

I actually live 3.4 miles from Disney World and have worked there for 15 years. So, for me, walking into the NYC 5th Avenue Apple Store (the glass cube) is probably how it feels when you set foot into the Magic Kingdom Park. That's one of the reasons I never watch any of the Foxcon documentaries and why I would never work at an Apple store. I want to preserve the magical guest experience.

It's horrible. It's truly dreadful. Apple has lost its way....

The night shot is kind of cool though - since all the other crap disappears.
What are you talking about. The building is stunning and they've done a great job on the corner of the street.

Such a nice looking store. Jobs would have loved it.

I think it's time to Disney expands in the USA. Every time I got to Disney World (it's been a couple of years), it's so crowded, the lines are too long and it's getting really expensive. I'd like one in NY, but I don't think that would ever happen. Unless they did some special winter type thing.

Probably would be best if they put on in the middle of America somewhere.

Seriously it's boring to visit Apple store, you see the same old things again and again. I won't go to Apple store unless I'm planning to buy something from Apple.

If people like glass building design, I recommend them to visit a modern airport terminal. Modern airport terminals have huge glass windows, glass walls, very bright and airy interior. And there are more interesting stuffs to see in the duty-free shops in the airport than Apple store.

There are a lot of modern airport terminals in China. Maybe Apple should open Apple booths in every airport terminals in China so that mainland Chinese don't have to fly to Hong Kong to buy Apple stuffs.
