Line Forms At Apple's Always-Open Manhattan Cube

timothy posted more than 5 years ago | from the they-serve-the-best-anticipation-ice-cream-here dept.

It's funny.  Laugh. 445

SpectreBlofeld writes "According to EngadgetMobile, a line has formed in front of Apple's flagship Cube store in Manhattan. From the article: 'So word on the street (literally) is that a large number of people are queuing in line outside of Apple's flagship store on 5th Avenue in New York City — keep in mind the Cube is open 24 hours a day. Our intrepid girl-on-the-scene reports that the group is more than 60-deep, though most people seem confused about what they're waiting for, but some believe they're actually camping out for a 3G iPhone.' Prank, or mass hysteria?" I wonder if the crowd already has its own Flickr group set up -- if not, what are they waiting for on that front?

Apple reps tell us they're crowd-controlling iPhone buyers because otherwise they would be "screaming" at employees and clogging up the store."

It's funny but when Twitter visited an Apple store, he was the one who got screamed at [slashdot.org]. So yes, this stuff does happen in real live too.

In corporate America, staff screams at you!

Oh well, good for Apple - they can't make computers fast enough for demand. That's really what this is about and they deserve the marketshare. If only they would be more like Sun about free software.

I've never noticed twitter's trolling, assuming it exists. I have noticed the constant barrage of "you're a twitter sockpuppet", which is the only way I ever really notice the posts in question. So if twitter is trolling, they're not so trollish that they stand out above the background noise (I read at -1, so there's a fair bit of background noise). So, can you please shut the fuck up and stop polluting Slashdot with your whining? If I was a troll I'd have great admiration for twitter - they have succeeded where most fail in that every one of their posts gets numerous "stop trolling", "you're a twitter sockpuppet" replies. It's you and your ilk who need to stop feeding the trolls.

Twitter, you need to learn the basic rules of social interaction.

That Apple employee did NOT care about your stupid canned lecture about Free Software(tm).

They didn't demonstrate setting up dual-booting with Windows, not because there's a vast corporate conspiracy against Free Software(tm), but because the display was already set up with all the steps laid out, and the employee wasn't going to spend 3 hours of a workday setting up Free Software(tm) for the sole purpose of demonstrating software that works the same with any 2nd OS.

The employees didn't like you, not because they're part of a vast corporate conspiracy against Free Software(tm), but because you went to an Apple store for the sole purpose of harassing employees about information you could have obtained much more easily with Google, JUST so you could give an absolutely retarded canned lecture about Free Software(tm) to an employee who didn't give a shit at all.

They kicked you out because you were acting like an obnoxious prick, not because you were asking too much about free software and/or you were embarrassing them with your superior knowledge of software and/or they were ignorant or forbidden to tell what they knew. In the future, just shut the fuck up, 'kay?

Here goes more karma, but yes. This has also been.. erm, discussed [slashdot.org] by another one of his sockpuppets, with many negative returns.

Personally I find that "article" of his to be a good example of why so many people are turned off by "advocates" like twitter. He clearly had no intention whatsoever to buy a Mac, but it probably made him feel good to play the victim when the hapless Apple employees wouldn't give him "GNU/Linux" quickly enough on boxes that are supposed to work (and be supported) as a full hardware/software solution. Instead of just using Google to see if someone else had gotten Debian Woody to run on a Powerbook, he has to walk in there, make life difficult for total strangers in the name of fighting "injustice" and then stomp out and write up a long whine with cheese about the whole traumatic experience.

That's just dreadful.

On the other hand, I think he's pretty much stopped pretending now. I'm not sure if that's good or bad.

People lining up in front of stores in the hope that maybe there will be something for sale that they are after - sounds like the Soviet Union to me!

I once visited the Apple campus at 1 Infinite Loop, Cupertino. There was a big open, quadrangular courtyard. Each side of the quadrangle had a huge banner, like 20 feet tall, displaying an Apple product: there was a iBook, a PowerBook, an iMac, and a Power Mac. The huge banners made me think of something the Soviets might have put up to glorify Stalin and Lenin at Red Square to celebrate the revolution. And certainly, Steve Jobs is a bit like Stalin or Kim Jong Il in creating a cult of personality, and you could argue that his product announcements are like the Communist Party rallies held in the USSR, China, or North Korea.

Obviously there are limits to such an analogy. I don't imagine Apple-manufactured tanks, made of polycarbonate and brushed alumninum rolling into Eastern Europe. And I don't imagine Apple getting the bomb, or starving millions of people to death, or locking PC users into re-education camps where they are taught how to use a mouse with a single button. Still, the way Jobs and Apple appeal to people is oddly similar to the way totalitarian regimes do.

In that dissent is not tolerated because the brownshirts (shadowshirts?) have huge chunks of their personal identity tied up in the perceived righteousness and strength of the collective image?

Or in their ability to trick millions of people into thinking that supporting a massive organization ironically makes them more individualistic?

Apple uses a lot of white. Maybe the Apple cult is like the anti-goth. Maybe a war of epic proportions is building. Maybe lives will be torn apart as in the civil war, when people find they have investment in both sides. O the blue-vanity!

And then did the Lord Jobs hand out the Holy 3G iPhone unto the chosen who harkened unto him, and it was good.

Improv Everywhere isn't really an improv group. It is just a prank group. My friend Charlie Todd started it, and in fact, hates the name. Initially the idea was to use the skills learned in improv in everyday situations. That was before he could get hundreds of people to show up and pull pranks.

Re:ImprovAnywhere (3, Interesting)

Anonymous Coward | more than 5 years ago | (#23511722)

This stunt sounds alot like what Improv Anywhere would do.

But your mention of "a friend of mine got an invite for it" sounds strange. Normally when Improv Anywhere stages an event, the invitation makes no mention of what the event actually is. It just says something vague like "bring a green shirt and be prepared to walk alot" or whatever. Only once everyone is gathered do they explain the stunt. (This is intentionally done to prevent information leaks and to keep everyone genuinely surprised.) If you want proof, watch some of their videos: the first step is always a briefing session for the volunteers. [improveverywhere.com]

I suppose your friend could have phoned/emailed you after receiving the instructions...

Improv Anywhere is officially denying involvement [mrcharlietodd.com] (not sure if you can take them at their word, however!). All this to say that without more proof, I don't think it's warranted to conclude this is Improv Anywhere's doing. (Yet.)

Not really. I figure 98% are sheep, about 1.8% are true dogs and there is a small group of wolves who cannot figure out the dog-sheep thing.

  I mean if you want one take it. This chasing them into groups that you then stash and befuddle is just strange. I guess it's called farming.

  A main difference between dogs and wolves is that a wolf will fight to the death, dogs seldom do. There is a natural tendency of the dogs to kinda leave the wolves alone because of this.

  Works for me ;).

Where I come from "60-deep" is used to suggest a wide frontage crowd x 60 rows back. Say 50 x 60? So I'd expect from your headline to see a crowd of a few thousand at least. View from the front of a rock stadium gig, that sort of thing. What the photos look like are a line of some people one behind the other. Perhaps 60 in total.

Maybe the headline is you're looking for is "a group of 60 people".

Meanwhile, at the Sony Style store, 5 blocks away, the glow of HDTVs illuminated the vapid faces of salespeople in tshirts as they stared across the racks over empty aisles. Aisles of laptops, PS3s, CDs and other items went unpurchased, and no one was there to see it.

Brand name computer stores are the outlet for those too weak to resist the urge to make impulse purchases in excess of a month's income. The fact Apple has been able to capitalize on this trend so well speaks to the fetishistic appeal of those shiny laptops and the absence of any real value in their products. Convinced the worth of something that is not even there, people are literally waiting in line to buy nothing.

Truly, they are the dead.
