I haven't been to the Queens Center Mall in ages, but I've been there plenty in the past.   I always wanted one of those free Apple T-shirts that they give out when they open up new stores. Maybe I should go and get myself one, when they open up this new store on Saturday. I wonder what color the shirt is? Yes, I am picky, and I only like certain colors.
I recently renegotiated my cable subscription last week, and the cable companies are obviously desperate to keep customers.    I saw a good deal that was only available to brand new customers, and I basically told them in a polite way that you can either give me that deal, or you will lose a longtime customer. I ended up getting the deal. That's the second time that I've renegotiated my plan in the past two years. It's become an annual thing now.
If you go back a bit and read the posts from around the time where Apple seemed to be giving away Apple Watches to all sorts of celebrities, then you will quickly find out that I was against it.
Impoverished peasants have no business being in an Apple store. That's why Android phones exist, for the purpose of accomodating those types.    Let them go and visit those types of stores instead.
 I saw an interesting youtube video a while back, it's an hour and a half long, and it's all about the C-64 and they also mention Atari too and other machines at the time, and Jack Tramiel is there too and speaks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBvbsPNBIyk
Technically speaking, I agree, the Atari was the more advanced machine. It had better graphics and it also had better sound. If I recall correctly, the Atari was capable of four channel sound. I did prefer the sound chip on the C-64 though, as that one just sounded better to my ears at least, and there was a recent iPad app that came out that recreates the Sid Chip, which is the sound chip used on the C-64.
 It doesn't take a genius to produce music today, because most of the software comes with pre-played loops and if somebody is capable of copying and pasting, then they too can make a song. Basically, anybody can do it.
At that time, the internet did not yet exist, and I hadn't yet signed up to a forum called Appleinsider, because that didn't exist either, so there was no need for me to think up any screennames for myself. Most of the computer time back in those days, at least for me, meant not even being in front of the computer. We would be plotting and drawing graphics on graph paper, and writing basic code. I'd say that 90% of the computer class time was not spent in front of any...
 And I learned on an Apple ][, it was the first computer that I was ever exposed to. I do it recall it being in a classroom though, and not in a store. About 35 students had to share that Apple ][ at the time.
 Me buying an Android or PC, that's pretty funny. I've never owned an Android or PC in my entire life, and I don't see that ever changing.
