thats a better name
Fear not fanbois, online only sales of Apple’s jazz bangle wristjob and shiny 12-inch port-disadvantaged MacBook do not signal the end of “iconic blockbuster launches” inside its retail temples stores, a fruity exec has proclaimed. Dream weaver and Apple retail suzerain Angela Ahrendts told employees she knew the “number one” …
"A worse experience?
Try going into a Microsoft Store and finding that that staff outnumber the customers 15:1"
I'm having a hard time figuring out how having staff available to server you instantly is a worse experience... Perhaps you prefer to stand there for 20 minutes waiting for someone to notice you?
UK mail order rights (e.g. returning non-faulty goods because you don't like them) cease to apply when you click and collect. If they mail it to your house, you have vastly more rights than if you take it from a shop, regardless of whether the payment was made online.
So my guess is they're avoiding the DSRs (Distance Selling Regulations) rather than the Posties.
Here we have Angela Ahrendts apparently describing the approach being adopted for buying the jizz-bangle (thanks x 7 - that's an excellent name for it) as a temporary one - and is specifically quoted as saying "We love our iconic blockbuster launches that we do in stores”
And a few weeks ago, Angela Ahrendts was quoted as saying "The days of waiting in line and crossing fingers for a product are over for our customers"
All I can say, then, is "called it!"
Sherlock icon because, well, "no shit..."
I just googled for pix of Angela Ahrendts (just wondered what she looked like) and found hundreds of pictures of her - in every single one she's "smiling" with her mouth closed as if in pain.
But even more strangely, mixed in with all those photos is just one of Seven of Nine. Does someone know something? Are we being given a clue as to her real ID? Are Apple employees being subsumed by the Borg?
I can't help think they were a bit concerned about massive return queues a few days later
Some are getting theirs 6 weeks ahead of schedule. I really do wonder if htey vetted initial buyers to ensure only the keenest fanboys get theirs.
They will more likely just be happy to just pop it in a drawer after that exciting first few days.
