Surveillance Video Shows Chaos Inside Apple Store During Last Year's Crossgates Mall Shooting

· Jim Tanous · Cool Stuff Found

So right off the bat let’s acknowledge that this isn’t cool stuff (darn predefined content categories), but it’s certainly interesting. Last November, a man opened fire inside the Crossgates Mall in Albany, NY. Now that the suspect has been convicted, police this week released surveillance footage from inside the Apple Store located near where the incident took place. The silent surveillance video shows the panic of holiday shoppers and Apple employees as they run for cover, something of which modern Apple Store designs unfortunately provide very little. Still, if you’re ever in a situation like this, try not to trample each other, especially those with strollers, OK? Check out the video and story over at ABC News.

Chicago's New Apple Store Lets You Get Your MacBook Fixed Inside a MacBook

· Jim Tanous · Cool Stuff Found

If there’s one thing about Apple Stores that everyone can agree on, it’s that they certainly stand out, and it looks like Apple isn’t aiming to change that reputation any time soon. The company’s upcoming flagship store in Chicago is being constructed with glass walls all around and a carbon fiber roof. But this week, the construction crew deviated from the original design plans and added a white Apple Logo to the center of the roof, making the store look like a giant MacBook. Check out the video of the store’s construction from DNAinfo.

Apple’s old retail store in the city of Lone Tree, CO (Park Meadows Mall) was always shoulder to shoulder.  Late last year, Apple opened its new store, not far from the old location. The new design is gorgeous and spacious. The problem is getting a pano shot. Because the store is so big, it’s impossible to get a proper shot with a constant flow of foot traffic during business hours. So I got there early before the store opened and took this amazing photo. The store really shows off its beauty when empty like this. But, of course, the really beauty is when it opens and becomes, well, still very crowded. (iPhone 7, size reduced.)
