    What makes (made) it the flagship store I wonder?
    Rough time to call it quits

    The delusion that their products are worth the retail space.

    Apparently the same for MIcrosoft. What I still find amazing is how incredibly well the Apple stores are doing.. in spite of what every pundit said... Tiffany can't even sell enough diamonds and rubies to make as much per square foot as an average Apple store.

    I mention Microsoft since their stores (those still open) are doing poorly. This was the do or die season for some Microcrud products.

    Actually, they can't even make those without copying... or TVs (LG), or washers & dryers (LG), vacuums (Dyson), cameras (Nikon) etc., etc., etc...

     

    They should just focus on their component business, since that's about the only thing they can do that isn't really copying someone else.

    Apple has a Store at Westgate Stratford strangely omitted from the list. If SAMSUNG can't make money there that does not bode well for them.

    That's a shame. During the busy Christmas shopping season that was a place people could go for some peace and quiet to be alone.

    Hahahahaha! I love it!

    Wow, packing it in during the peak holiday shopping season..
    That is grim.

    Would love to see another "next big thing" commercial right about now. You know, the one with the Samsung geeks pathetically teasing all of the Apple customers lined around the block. Remember that classic?

    On another note,

    CAN AI PLEASE STOP USING AUTO-PLAY FLASH VIDEOS FOR ADVERTISING?

    I wonder what Samsung, Microsoft, and Google would do if Apple wasn't there to knock off? Google Search kinda reminds me of DOS.

    It was the ability to get tech support on your computer that helped get the Apple Stores started. I wonder how much of a computer section these stores had and how much of it was mobile.

    Google and Microsoft would still make billions in profits in the computer software and search etc sectors.

    We'd be using Blackberry-style phones with physical keyboards and there would be no iPad or tablet computers.

    I just saw on Twitter that Flurry Mobile analytics data is showing that for every Samsung device activated Apple has activated 2.8 devices. So either their servers are generating fake data or Apple is going to report the mother of all quarters next month. :smokey:

    By the way, there was a good Flurry article I'd read a few months ago. It's a worthwhile read if you're curious who and where they are now and where they came from.
