I'll take a Genius at an Apple Store any day over some numbnutz behind the Service Department desk at Best Buy, or a clueless sales clerk at Walmart. Absolutely right - a Genius IS better than everyone else - and I'm damn glad to have one at my back!

No one cares about any of this. Keep it off our website.

 
There are literally entire LIBRARIES, SOCIAL INSTITUTIONS, UNIVERSITY DEPARTMENTS DEEEDDDICAAATED to consistently proving you wrong. 

 

Doesn’t say much for the quality of their work when they’re trying to prove the opposite of reality. Again, please leave if this is all you have to say.

Calling it the "Genius Bar" is pure genius.

Would you dare go to work every day with that title if you didn't have your act together? It would be so easy to mock the whole premise of the Genuis Bar if they weren't delivering on the promise in most customer's minds. Awesome motivation tool if you ask me.

Apart from the usual geeky and business-oriented comments, the most important thing is that, despite some heavy airbrushing, she DOES look good and has beautiful eyes...all the rest is irrelevant.

I think she is going to quickly become one of the major "faces" of Apple leadership as the Cook/Apple regime seems to be expanding the public role of their senior management team.

She just oozes charisma, intelligence, style . . . If she is as good as her history and success suggests they'll be talking about her as leadership material after the Cook era.

Comprehension check. My post was sheer sarcasm.

The words "splash reverse" makes me think of the toilet water that splashes back up one's a**. Yes, off topic. Go Angela! 1smile.gif

Oh? What makes you, a British citizen I presume, an expert on American corporate diversity? Are you some kind of quota guy? Your country gifted Apple with the talents of Jony Ive ... thank you very much ... but it also bequeathed to Apple Angela's disastrous predecessor - John Browett. So you as a Brit might not want to be getting too full of yourself.

I respectfully disagree.
I don't think anyone in their right mind thinks of "genius" as anything more than playful marketing. It's not a statement about Apple Store employees' IQ, and certainly not a statement that customers are somehow stupider than Apple Store workers.

I agree. Big Bang Theory did a great ribbing on that name a few years ago, as you could imagine.

Sure; because talking about her business prowess is always more exciting than acknowledging a beautiful woman's looks.

 

If you don't like women, of course.

She is.  And she is an excellent speaker, and very smart.  She's pretty much got it all going for her.
