Apple Store opens in Reno, Nevada after relocating; new Apple store 2.0 design is open and airy

You might remember a very old BlackBerry Storm commercial from 2008 that focused on the SurePress clickable keyboard that was supposed to make typing on the phone's glass display more accurate. While the Storm user on screen was typing out the name of a city, the off-screen announcer was saying, "And lookee here...it's typing Reno, Nevada instead of Rino Fertada or Emo Pinata."
We bring that up because yesterday, Apple opened up its newest Apple Store in Reno, Nevada. Note that the store was not opened in Rino Fertada or even Emo Pinata. The new store opened in the Summit Reno Mall, and replaces a smaller store that had been open in the same mall. The larger retail location uses the Apple store 2.0 redesign that sports a wide open sales floor, a ceiling to floor television display, and custom wood-made furniture that is used to display Apple products. On the television screen, images of the recently unveiled Apple iPhone X, Apple iPhone 8, Apple iPhone 8 Plus and Apple Watch Series 3 were shown in a repeating cycle.
The top Apple executive in charge of the company's retail stores, Angela Ahrendts, has redesigned the stores to make it easier for both new users and those familiar with Apple's products to experience and experiment with the devices that are on display. Stores, called town squares by Apple, offer lessons on how to use your Apple devices to master subjects like photography, music, drawing and others. On Saturday, the "Today at Apple" sessions at Reno included a photo walk with the iPhone. Future lessons will give consumers tips on using Apple hardware and software. Special sessions to be held on Tuesdays will show teachers how best to use Apple's devices in the classroom.
The new Reno location is open Monday through Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., and 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday. On Friday, September 22nd, the launch date for the Apple iPhone 8 and Apple iPhone 8 Plus, store hours will be 8 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. If you were wondering, these will probably also be the hours that your local Apple Store will be keeping on the September 22nd launch date. Just to be sure, you might want to give your local Apple Store a call just to be sure.

You dont need much of a layout in your shop when you only have about 4 products.

I'm pretty sure Apple has more current devices than Microsoft, now? -3 laptops -0 consoles, unless you count Apple TV, which I don't -3 tablets -9 phones Microsoft: -1 desktop -1 console -2 laptops -1 tablet -0 phones Apple are just catering to their own operating system and ecosystem, can't blame them for that.

"You should upgrade your brain to a none retarded one, and also your phone, don’t choose the low level in life, you only live once honey" ... I hope that cleared things up... And if it did, maybe you can share because I'm scratching my head too. lol

I made you a question in another thread, so I remind you, what can you tell me about the fact that you are a regular visitor on a site that you say is biased towards a brand you hate? Why having these habits?

I thought they were called "Town Halls", because calling something a store isn't (((THINKING DIFFERENTLY))).
