Internal Apple video explains the idea behind Apple Stores

Interestingly enough, location is of crucial importance and nearly all Apple Stores are placed in central places.
The whole video walks us through a couple of stores giving us some unique footage of senior Apple management visiting the stores before launch. The whole video, work of New York’s Washington Square Films, is an impressive work and carries what is often called the Apple spirit. Check it out at the link right below.

Eh, any time I get near one I can feel the aura of arrogant narcissistic smugness emanating from inside. Instant repellant to free-thinkers.

That's funny seeing as a good deal of people go to the Apple Store not to just buy electronics, but to understand how the hell to use them. You call Apple narcissistic, but the company doesn't lie when it says it devotes half of the floor space to their customers AFTER they've purchased. Teaching people who are afraid of technology to not be afraid of it. To help folks when their computers or tabs are broken. Other companies give you a computer and send you on your way. You can feel a certain way about Apple's business practice, but the Apple Store and the people that work there are some of the most intelligent and driven people I've ever met. Walk into Best Buy and tell me you actually feel the same thing...

Elegance, efficiency, style, popularity, human emotions, cheering, pretty music in background. No - all of that didn't cause me to think about Apple. Nor about iPhone. Nor iPad or Macs or anything Apple-related at all. It caused me to think about my wonderful Galaxy S3 - and about Android - which is (very ironically) everything Apple commercials tout iOS to be - except that iOS fails badly when pitted against the reality check, while Android thrives. :D So yeah - Apple is great at marketing - so great in fact that they cause people to think about Android and Samsung Galaxy products subconsciously while viewing their videos. :)
