Apple’s Impact on Retail

ATT-Store-of-the-Future-Wideshot-640x303
Allthingsd reports about AT&T’s new retail store.

The new-look stores, which are rolling out nationwide, feature lots of wood, lots of products to try out — and no check-out counters. Instead, workers with tablets will be able to help customers face-to-face throughout the store.

They are inspired by Apple Retail Stores.

Apple Retail Store
Apple Retail Store are the perfect place to shop for Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod and more. You can also visit to attend free workshops or get support for your exsisting Apple devices.

Smart Apple employees at Genius Bars offer free support and answer all your questions – ask them just about anything. They always impress.

Apple_Genius_Bar_Regentstreet_London

Genius folks have these ‘red telephones’, a direct line to Apple product specialists, for questions too completecated for in-store employees to handle.

Scott McNulty shares how he loves Apple Store but it’s so crowded. These stores are crowded because people can not resist getting seduced. That’s what Apple stores are designed for.

Apple has it’s own techniques to seduce you. Apple takes care of every detail — one of the interesting techniques is the degree of inclination in which notebook computers screens are kept at. Forces you to step ahead, adjust the screen and start checking out the Mac computers.

You know about school trips to Meusems, parks etc. But school trips to the Apple Store? Yes.

It’s a computer store where you do not see unnesseary cables lying or any simply any unwanted stuff. Every thing is minimilistic, just right.

Generally efforts are put into building a perfect product. Apple does that. But Apple doesn’t stop there. They go our of their way – creating value for employees, customers, investors, shareholders, competitors, copiers.

Retail Intellectual Property
Apple Store designs are trademarked. Apple has patented signage & security features of the store, Paris Apple Store design is patented in the name of Steve Jobs. There are tons of store patents & trademarks registed. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

Enjoy this video:

Update: Funny website mocking Apple Retail employee excuses. I believe people only dig on stuff they care about.

There’s an app for everything.

Pause: An app that let’s you to compete with others on time spent disconnected from your iPhone.

God is placing great opportunities in your life… pause and appreciate them.

Yes, you hear it right. Reports suggest that Apple is testing a new iPad mini model that includes an A6 chip, the same as the current iPhone 5 and a non-retina display.

Google recently released ‘Retina’ version of Nexus 7. Even Apple’s greatest supporters not happy with the iPad Mini screen.

Since iPhone 4 — and till today with Retina MacBooks Apple has spoiled us with super sharp, ‘groundbreaking Retina displays’. It’s like going back to the old age with non-retina devices.

This would make sense if you remember iOS 7 is also launching soon & it’s pretty slow on iPad Mini. I personally wish this is just a rumour that never happens.

It’s a clean font that looks very nice.” It’s “modern, nice, readable, not awkward.

Rani Molla of Gigaom has done an interesting and extensive research on Apple’s Helvatica Neue Use in iOS 7.

It is widely known how Apple changed font weight from iOS 7 Beta 1 to Beta 3. Designers all over the world complained about the weirdly unreadable iOS 7 font. Also interesting to note that Helvetica Neue is much bigger — brands like 3M, BMW, American Apparel, Google use Helvetica Neue in their brand identities & products.

Some designers suggest Apple should have custom designed typeface for iOS & OS X that reflects works well on technology & has a brand voice. I’d disagree. A custom typeface would stand out completely & disconnect the world to Apple’s mobile & computer platform. Platforms need not maintain any brand identity, rather should feel & behave like all other products around us. I don’t want to be reminded about ‘Apple’ as a brand whenever I see a label or button (with text) on my iPhone.

Apple today published a notice about upcoming no-tax holidays in many of the US states. Participating states include Alabama, Florida, New Mexico, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

Note on Apple’s website:

When you buy from the Apple Online Store, sales tax will appear in your cart and during the checkout process. The correct no-tax amount will appear when you receive your email order confirmation.

Residents in states without a sales tax holiday can travel to those regions which do observe the practice. As part of the promo, sales tax is dropped from purchases when items are checked-out.

No-tax holidays essentially started to sell more computers in United States.

Game Review: Goldenoid 3D

by Andrew on May 13, 2013

in apple

mzl.armjbanf Being a huge fan of brick games, I came across Goldenoid 3D as a complete delight, thus I thoroughly enjoyed cracking the entire gameplay. The app is pretty straightforward facilitating a focused gameplay. I appreciate the efforts of the developer in wrapping up this complete 3D experience with well-thought power-ups and challenges.

The app starts in a simple way wherein you have to destroy all the bricks to pass a particular level. While destroying, you randomly hit on bricks which render power-ups and multiply score. You will also get to grab coins on the go which convert into additional power ups, that is fun to achieve. Click to continue…
