    I forgot, Apple will start selling their own car line. That's why they need all the space.

    Sorry, Ensign. I live in Vegas and I'm willing to go out on a limb here and state there is no Apple Store at the Forum. The fourth apple store is in Reno, Nevada. Funny how the Apple Retail site doesn't list the TownCenter store yet. It's been open for over 6 months now.

    Good idea. With all of their accumulated knowledge of power management they've gained from portable computers and iPhone, they'd probably make one hell of a great electric vehicle.

    Probably has a 5-year ROI based on NOT having to rent booth or event space at COMDEX and NAB.

    Methinks Steve can afford a little better than a Las Vegas store for a private retreat if he wants to. Like his house.



    Not sure, but he seems to be doing okay with the business. People stealing to get at the product, rampant rumor sites with posts by the thousands clamoring for more, stock at mid to high $180s during an economic slowdown; Apple, Inc. doesn't seem to be hitching a ride on the "going broke" train.

    [edit] also, the job search page shows store locations in the forums, fashion show, and town square. [/edit]





    Must be a different apple

    Really? The "conservative" (not as in "green") designs like Motel 6 look as fresh as the day they were built.

    Pretty darn cool... but Libeskind is repeating himself. This looks like a carbon copy of the ROM project in Toronto. Although... this seems like a more fully realized version of that idea. And as for repeating yourself... heck... it works for Gehry!!! My guess is that it's actually the complete opposite of the designer being indulgent at the client's expense... my guess is that the client came to Libeskind and said "I LOVE that Crystal thing you did in Toronto... I want a building just like it!!!". Still... he even gave the project the same name!!! Come on Daniel :P

    It's not open yet, as I indicated. There will be four stores on the strip once it opens.

    While there is plenty of copying in Las Vegas, there needs to be more originality. But I hate the asymmetrical points and angles. I agree that it will not stand up to the test of time.

    Maybe they should of had Jonathan Ive design it.

    Does anyone know what was in this location before?

    I love Vegas! Was just there last week and had a blast. I'll definitely be going back when City Center opens.

    "ITS" = the possessive pronoun



    It is the latter of this pair that the above posters meant to use.



    Its the fault of the english language for being inconsistent.

    (All other possesified nouns or pronouns use an apostrophe.)







    Edit: Back on topic...



    It seems that this style of building has been popping up everywhere in the last decade or more. Can you imagine an entire city in the style?

    That's a holocaust museum. I expect the architecture to be brutal. It not the same as the whimsical and open design of the Citycenter. Many Apple stores are also clad in gray metal.
