Not to seem prejudiced or anything, but I met a 'so called' personal shopping assistant at the Apple Store in the tony neighborhood of Bethesda, Maryland and woops! Not a clue about Video editing or my key issue, HD Video Editing on the Mac. Looking around, I noticed that the sales help have switched from pony tailed, tatooed, and generally tech savvy GenX & GenNext to this, err... conservative car salesman/ sleazy politician look- Republicans? I even brought them my now famous flow diagram and they looked at with a look that said "err is that a PowerPoint print out" WHAT'S HAPPENED TO APPLE STORES ?????
