Is there anything they *didn't* copy from the Apple store?

I can't believe how unbelievably lame they are at coming up with their own ideas. Amazing! With all that money you would think they would be able to buy an original thought.

Can't wait to see the new Mac/PC ads from Apple. They could attack this on so many levels, and I hope they do.

Ow! That'll leave a mark! Well done.

I like the new Win7 Apple ads, too.

Check out the Fox video review of Windows 7 and watch how the video plays when he does the demo. Some things never change.

Click on the window to the right "Pros and Cons of Windows 7"

Looks to me like there are more store personnel than customers in that video. Granted, it looks like do they have people waiting to get in. As Terry stated, you'd think they could have come up with something a little more unique than copying the apple store concept.
