    Great story, glad to see apple is doing all it can to help everyone. Best wishes for everyone in Japan...

    Thing added to bucket list: sleep in an Apple store.

    I read somewhere that Starbucks does that type of stuff too... although I can't remember a specific time, and of course it's not a disaster anywhere close to this.

    That said, any company in it's right mind would do this. In this case, yes, many, many Kudos to Apple Corporate, even more kudos to the immeasurable help provided by the local Apple staff, but to keep it in perspective I doubt any store would turn people away. It is cool that Apple controlled so much of the building that they could be self-sustaining, and it was very neat that the Managers were sent out to buy food and water before the rush. I like that the company was standing behind whatever decision the employees made - according to that article, some didn't.

    Sadly, any number of first-person stories equally moving and more powerful will never be heard.

    I'm not really surprised about helping out locals, as I imagine most places were.

    I'm more surprised about their "write-off" attitude; that they would whatever was needed for someone to get somewhere... impressive.
