Apple subsequently used its proven ability to draw in customers to negotiate favorable lease rates for flagship properties and mall outlets. Pure sales are not the only benefit of having an in-mall Apple Store, as the outlets have become destination stores for many shoppers, generating sizable increases in foot traffic.
Having visited dozens of malls, in multiple states, I now judge the quality of any particular mall by whether they are able to attract Apple retail.
I have yet to see a venue where Apples market research and demographics has failed.

You seem to need some therapy about your self-regard, but what you really need to do is stop whining - there are people who would love to have your "problems".
I guessing writing this book was perhaps cathartic for someone coming to grips with their now fame and perhaps lonely past. I've only met one uber-wealthy person, and he is quite kind and normal. I have met lots of people that had asshole parents, and many of them are, well... not. It might be worth a read, as it is hard for me to relate to uber-richness.
A participation trophy for all.
It does suck to be rejected or ignored by parents, but that should not be a crutch for the remainder of ones life. Certainly not an impetus to write a book...

Apple should have clearly presented some information about the AppleCar this week to calm fears about Apple's revenue drop. But we heard nothing.
Tim Cook needs to resign, go back to being the COO, or leave Apple. He is not the right CEO for this time in Apple's history.
5. Be a visionary. Sorry Cook just isn't one. Never has been. Never will be.
Cook needs to get past his obvious full-on social agenda or take it some where else. Social agendas work both ways - just ask North Carolina.
When products lag - and the rumor mill isn't even running, shareholders are taking a hit - after buy-backs to prop up the price and an obvious flattening out of products - both software and hardware, it is time to make the hard decisions. And don't give me the Apple Car thing - unless it hovers!
Problem is... where the hell is the next person that can take the most innovative ship in the world and get it back on course?
I would hope it would be inside Apple, but I don't see it.
Two cheers for Tim standing up to the FBI... end of the story. Next.
