Talking Newb

Hey everyone! I'm new to ehMac.ca and I just wanted to say hi!

I managed to get to Yorkdale before the mall opened, but unfortunately I had a doctor's appointment so I had to leave (and missed out on that t-shirt I wanted badly). But anyways I stayed in T.O. that night and only got on my Mac now (that's why I didn't post earlier, and completely forgot to post while I was in the store)!

I loved being among people like me, Mac addicts alike, and in a store that's completely Apple---it was the experience of a life time for me (probably not considering I'm only 13, but still).

I'm definitely going to be at the next Canadian store opening, so see ya there!

I am so excited to see the Globe tommorow. I really hope I'm in it!

It's really cool to see myself showing up in other peoples pictures. People I had never met until the opening what a novelty.

Genius Bar may sound like the name of a calorie-filled energy snack, but in reality it’s one of the features at Canada’s first Apple store, opening Saturday at Yorkdale Mall north of Toronto.

Whether you’re a beginner computer user or a pro, experts at the Genius Bar inside the store are there to help the befuddled and the curious with their technology questions. It’s part of what Apple spokesperson Monica Wik calls the interactive experience for customers.

"Part of our philosophy in founding the stores is that we want consumers to touch it, feel it, experience the product before they buy it," she told Pulse24.com from the computer company’s head office in Cupertino, Calif. "Nothing's behind glass, everything is on display for people to play with and test. All of our computers are hooked up to the Internet so you get a good, true experience."

Yorkdale scored the coup of having the country’s first Apple retail store – its grand opening comes just weeks after the mall unveiled its new wing.

There are only 105 locations around the world, and outside of the United States, Canada is just the third country to have a store, behind the U.K. and Japan. Wik would not expand on future plans for stores in the country.

"Apple chooses their locations based on heavily trafficked areas - and traditionally we go where our consumers are,” she said.

The new store, open to the public at 9:30am, will feature the entire line of iPod portable music players including the Shuffle, plus cameras, Macs, Powerbooks, and new software including the weeks-old Tiger operating system.

The space is divided into themes – Music, Movies, Photo, etc. – each area with experts to help figure out what system or item is most appropriate for customers’ needs.

On opening day there’s an iPod and an iTunes online music store workshop from 11am to noon, then a Mac OS X Workshop from 6-7pm.

Home computer users often take their machines home and don’t know how to do much beyond the basics. Seminars on how to use the technology seek to solve that problem.

“Once you have the products we offer classes that will allow consumers to get as educated as they choose to be in any given area,” said Wik.

Guest speakers in the coming weeks include music producer Peter Bond, who’ll be talking about Logic Pro music creation software on May 26 at 7pm, and graphic designer Louis Fishauf, who’ll be sharing wisdom from his 20-year design career on June 2 at 7pm.

FYI - Monica Wik is the new Apple Store/retail spokesperson who came from Sony Computer Entertainment (Playstation Portable).

I can see why she transferred, beyond the slow success of the PSP there was virtually no advertising campaign and only a few brand retailers got hold of it
