Not sure how old this is, though you can gauge it from the product in the store. Wow. G4 towers + iBook + Titaniums. So was this the actual 1st store before it opened?? Regardless, he meticulously lays out what the store is all about from layout, to product and accessories, the Genius bar...

The enthusiasm!

+ YouTube Video

He may be in paradise, or then again maybe he just went (back?) to some more advanced civilization in another galaxy to join up with all the other great minds from our past. (imagine the conversations with Einstein, for example)
Just fantasizing..
Anyhow, check out the dial phone at the Genius Bar!!

Nice video, I've never seen it before. Looks like it's from 2001 or so, judging by the Macs on display. Was this an actual store, or a concept / mock-up?

They did prototype the stores just like any Apple product, but this appears to be from the first real store (Tysons Corner, McLean Va.), a few days before the opening in May 2001. Apparently the video was shown at MacWorld NYC in July 2001.

I wish they would bring back the red phone! It would help the clueless idiots that they seem to employ at most of these stores.

You might be right jmlachance, Steve does look a bit "Vulcanish".
PS. I remember going to my first Apple store in Buffalo way back, my wife said I was hyper, drooling and looking faint.
