If you'd have moved just a little to the left, then I wouldn't had to search for "Amicus certus in re incerta cernitur".

Brisbane defo needs the Apple store though. Just yesterday in Brisbane I took photos of so much Apple advertising in Brisbane. Mostly for the iPad. Everywhere, billboards, signs, posters, etc etc. Apple is really pushing hard that way. And having the Apple store, using the advertising to . . . well in a way direct the customers indirectly to the soon to be opened Apple store I think is the way to go.

Does the outside of the building look any different when I saw it yesterday? Not really. There could be work done on the interior in secret, but I don't think so. I don't think Apple have started on the final work for the store yet. But hopefully soon they will.
Haha there is a little Nextbyte store on Adelaide street, it will be slaughtered.

I've never heard about this, but knowing Apple I would not be surprised.

Yes it will be unfortunately. I have been past there occasionally.

Hope we can get a date on the store opening soon. I'm sure those of us who can be there for it, want to be there.

If the Build is not at practical completion by 30 November, it will Xmas shopping season.

The Retailers would like the mess and construction gone by then or it will be after the school holidays, in February, which is going to be major wet month this year.

If you are going for photos, move in, quick, get them and get out before anyone is the wiser.

Be aware there is one person at least on the site that will respond, perhaps unpleasantly.

Certainly do not go out of your way to annoy.

Nothing to recommend the building from an architectural standpoint. Given the fortress like exterior, it is a surprise that Apple chose it as a store location.
