All this talk of Genius bars and popping in to see what's up. We have a local Apple shop (or at least, the nearest thing to it, which is a specialist shop selling only Apple stuff). Wandered in last week to have a nose about. "Don't suppose you have any iphone 5's do you?" "Nope". How about the new ipod touch? Nope. Nano? No. Ok, I'll have a nose about... Where are the retina MBP's? No, haven't got any of those. What else, the new Air? No, got both of the previous models (doggy well-used demo machines on the table, filthy cables and all, previous minimum spec). On the other hand, they did have an ipad3, the only current thing in the shop! And, of course, three of the walls were filled with "every accessory you will ever need for your Apple". All with 30-pin connectors, of course. It's not surprising it was empty, like shopping in the Marie Celeste. Ok, we're not a big city, but there's only one bigger city for 2000km, so what are we suppose to do?
