Again all a seating area will do it take space away from product displays making it more crowded for the fewer units. It will also keep web browsers in the store too which are rarely a purchasing clientele.
Gotta agree here. We don't want the Apple store turning into a new version of Barnes and noble. The idea is for people to come in, browse avg hopefully purchase. Not seeing the benefit to having purple sitting around surfing the web on the store's WiFi. It just takes away room from the products and keeps non customers in longer making crowded stores more crowded
Exactly. I've only used iPhones since the 3g but I do have an unlocked Android for overseas trip. Since I'm able to sell my two year old iPhones for what I paid for them I'd rather use the cheap Android the few times I'm overseas and get that high iPhone resale value
As there are less and less obvious new areas to bring products to like iPad etc Apple is showing that they're on the ball by upping r&d to find newer areas that are less obvious but cost more to find and develop.
