Apple this weekend celebrated the launch of its new in-store programming, "Today at Apple," at all of its 495 retail locations.

“Today at Apple” kicked off this weekend with new in-store programming around the world, including Photo Walks and Kids Hour at all 495 Apple stores. From Getting Started with Coding to How To: Sketch, Draw and Paint with iPad, stores collectively hosted 4,000 sessions a day, including some with very special guests.

How 'progress' has evolved. A mass of humans walking about aimlessly staring into the abyss (Abyss = Retina Screen) searching for stuff other humans have searched for previously. Is this a somehwat bizarre and a depressing indictment of how lazy and self-focussed we have become? Well no. It is on fact a great tool to help today's generation and future generations of servile. Sorry. Infantile. I actually meant to say, information-philes discover the wonders of the world in the comfort of their own ..
Classrooms. Probably. And via a glass screen thing. Yeah.
Hurrah for evolution. And that.
Isn't it?
Wait a minute. Rather than go out there an look at the world for real I'll Google it. Wait a minute. Yup. Yeah. It's a good thing apparently. So. Definitely Hurrah!

What about those of us with an Apple Store that doesn't have nice scenery (a mall) what will we be taking photos of?
The staff I guess. Swimsuits and underwear sold separately:p We don't even have Apple Store in the country.

You could go outside the mall?
