    Hi

    I forgot to post these last month, and I just found them again and thought you'd all like to see them. I'm sure they're familiar to some, and I don't remember them being posted earlier, so my apologies if they were.

    They are situated at the corner of Prince and Broadway, NYC. I think they're really fun, especially in the city where you see white headphones every few minutes.

    Cheers
    Hamish

    OMG what a great advertisment... this is why Apple is style. Noone would like to see a Dell sign illustrated in that way!

    Okay, that's just cool. I hope they do stuff like that in Paris and London, whenever they open stores there. I wish they could do that here in Denver, but alas, our light rail system doesn't have any ad space like that. >:O

    Wow. Those are great, almost subliminal, advertisements.

    "iPod Central" hah, that's so great.

    I'm amazed at the fact that all these years apple has been making better software, in turn better computers, but could never sell the masses on it. Now, a little music player and its software is going to provide the experience/motivation that so many PC users needed to actually switch... and I don't think that was ever the plan.

    A well placed holiday switch campaign would be great, get ibook sales up... all thanks to our dear ipod.

    that's actually damn good, and its too bad that there isn't an Apple store in downtown DC (should be, but the 10% sales tax probably nixed that) - they could do the same thing with the metro here...;)

    Yes, I'm sure that will confuse the hell out of out of towners.

    Many Visits

    Been to that particular station many times - almost always with the SoHo Apple Store as my destination!

    Would love to be in NYC right now; I could use the cooler weather and cleaner air!
