    It's a 2 story Apple Store? I didn't know that. I'll have to go there sometime.

    More importantly, the people who work there are nice!!! I wish I lived closer to that store than Valley Fair's. :(

    You don't like the one at Valley Fair? Or you think that being near the one is SF would be 'cooler'? ;)

    Eh, I haven't had good experiences w/ the people @ VF. And SF is cooler... :D But I'm not a fan of the SF Apple Store's clearish staircase; seeing as I'm afraid of heights, staircases, and bridges... hehe. :eek:

    just wait till you can try it, press it again to toggle it off, its a fun way to mess around with friends/coworkers etc though the Universal Access settings

    Nothing that isn't undone by pressing the same key combo again. Perfectly safe, and quite useful for some folks.

    that key combo is like a cool little easter egg.
    I mean, it erased my hard drive, but it was cool.

    Don't say that! It will discourage people from trying an awesome key combo!

    People are so cruel nowadays...

    I never had the guts to use this combo at all the computers in the Store in fear of eternal banishment.

    I have done that on a few computers at the Apple Store in Lynwood. Great fun that was. I am also thinking of doing that to the Mac labs in the Fine Art building at University for an April Fools joke.

    So heres the pictures (finally)

    So on our way we snaped some great shots of the city, and becasue we were so eager to get there i made a few illegal turns because I am not as famillar with the area as I should be. But it's ok I fit in very well with the drivers in SF becasue I just as big of jerk when i'm driving as they are.

    And then we finally got there. YESSSSS!!!!! and though we didn't stay there all day the parking garage was right next to it (valet by the way) so we kept comeing back. It was a great store.

    I really wish the managers would tell that "no good, sh*t faced, butch and skanky squatter" to get out of our store!!!

    What she is doing is wrong. She's bringing in her HP laptop and playing Party Poker for hours just sitting there.

    Please post a pic of her. I need more rant fuel.

    :mad:

    We asked what is up with her going and stealing the internet over there when we were watching the Final Cut PRO (valley fair dosn't do pro apps) and they said "there is nothing we can do about her."
