When I see this kind of thing, I realize I live in a very different world than some people. I couldn't tell you the last time I went to a restaurant that even had reservations.
Also, that's almost the cost of the Beats transaction.
I really love the steel spiral. The all-glass staircases are cool, but a little bit silly / show-off-y. This feels more in tune with using the right materials for the right purposes. I don't know if you really gain anything by making the steps out of glass.
Exactly. Even if all the worst criticism is true, that Beats are overpriced, have terrible sound, and silly style, then even then you have to admit they pulled off a marketing miracle. At the very least, they're great a business.FWIW, my freind has a Beats bluetooth speaker and it is truly amazing the sound that comes out of that thing. It's so small yet it sounds beautiful.
