    I just came down to the city, and I don't have internet connection at the apartment I'm staying at, and it sucks. I walked all the way down to 5th Ave to the Apple store, it's very cool. I need to find some place for my wifi needs :( .

    This store is so much bigger than the one in Albany, and there's so many freakin people. I'm goin to try to get a job here. Anyone on MR work here?

    There wasn't really a point to this thread but I'm just glad I could get on the net again :D I had to make a thread.

    I think that they could be fired if they were to identify themselves...

    Technically, Apple Employees aren't supposed to frequent any online forums unless that is their specific job.

    Really? So they can't participate in these forums, or they just can't say that they work there?

    Technically they're not supposed to participate in forums. They may be asked to sign a NDA.

    I'm afraid what everyone in this thread has said is true. That's the only thing keeping me from getting a job at my local Apple store. I love this place too much. :D But so, I have yet to be at the 5th Avenue store and I'm sure it's amazing! I can NOT WAIT to get there. It'll probably be like 10x more crowded though in December around Christmas time. :D

    ...or convince customers to wait for a cool new product that doesn't really exist.

    Got a camera? Post some pics of yourself and the glass cube?

    Wondering if we need an "MRers at Apple Stores" thread.

    I went to the Apple store on 5th Avenue and...

    ...IT WAS SO FREAKIN' CROWDED.

    When Jobs said New York City "could use another Apple store", he was making an understatement. I went into a lot of stores, but the Apple Store was by far the busiest - I could hardly move/breathe inside.

    Toys R Us, for those of you care, was a close second (it's in Times Square) :D .

    Wow...I'd love to visit that store. Biggest one I've been to was the one in San Francisco, on Stockton.

    That sucks. MR is probably the only forum I consistently participate in. Hmm... It would be cool working there though.

    I should've took a shot with my Photobooth, but I didn't feel like moving around to adjust. I felt kinda of uncomfortable there, with so many people walking around. I was the only one there with my MB out. Later on I saw someone with a PowerBook, and another MacBook.

    Yea, there were hella lor of people there. Not can't move crowded, but pretty much all the Macs and iPods were occupied.

    Isn't it like $70 a month for unlimited subway access? That's better than paying for gas @ $3 a gallon. When I was driving to NYC from albany, I saw $3.49!

    Yea, Albany, but I came out to NYC for the summer. Right now I got nothing to do. I guess I'm looking for a job, but I don't really know.

    but i don't think that the subway access will get you from boston to new york very conveniently. ;)

    have you tried the jiwire widget? it lets you search by where you are for the nearest wireless hotspots, free and not.

    edit: i searched for free hotspots near the 5th ave. apple store, and i attached screenshots of the top 10. it looks like a library would be a good place to head for your internet needs.

    Hey thanks, I've been using jiwire.com. There's a library I went to today which is pretty close. I've found a place in the apartment that get's a good signal from somewhere. I don't know where but it's an open access so I'm using it. :D I hope whoever it is, they don't mind.

    Is there a way to find out the location of where it's coming from?
