While inspecting the merchandise at Apple Soho, one iBook had a folder entitled "Other Icons." Many of the choices were very colorful with interesting designs, so I proceeded to replace the standard hard drive icon with one from that collection. Another customer observed this and remarked how much better than replacement icon looked and said she planned to e-mail it to herself so she could change hers once she returned home. An Apple employee, who must have overheard a portion of our chat, walked over and asked me in an indignant tone, "What did you just do to the hard disc icon?" "Simply replaced it with something better, but I do return computers to the way they were before leaving," I replied. "It would be best if you did not do that," he stated as if speaking to a child. "Considering all the activities that regularly occur in this store such as people blasting music, deleting files, adjusting settings in programs and downloading many items onto CD's, I must tell you that this is a strange thing to hear. Might there be a specific reason behind the request?" He then offered up this gem. "The hard disc icon is the one that can NEVER be restored once it is changed. To get it back to where it was requires using original installation discs and all that takes time to do." I then told him that the original icon could be restored in approximately 10-15 seconds. He then watched sheepishly as normalcy once again returned to Prince Street.
