It was a great experience for me to visit this great Apple Store in London.This is the first time in my life visiting such a magnificient store since I have my first encounter with Apple way back in 1984-the days of Apple 11e!
Over the last three decades, I have a love and hate affairs with Apple products and yet I use both PC and Mac.Nowadays, most of my friends who were using PC before are using iPhone and iPad.I am not an iPhone user yet but last month I bought an iPad and I am all for it.It was tested during my two weeks vacation in Holland and England and I found it very portable when I am on the go.
This iPad reminds me of the failed Apple's Newton many,many years ago.Newton was a brilliant invention but it came out too early and iPad has the perfect time to soar into clouds nine!Or the iclouds...
The small screens of smart phones(iPhone,Blackberry,Nokia,Samsung etc) and tablets(iPad,Blackberry etc) are very sticky indeed.I notice that a lot of peoples' faces are locked horns with the screens whenever they are walking,in the restaurants and even in their cars.I can safely say that many of the people I know read more things on their computer and phone screens than in the books or even newspapers.
Now,I am saving money to buy a macpro and thinking how to make money using this new consumers behaviours.May be launching my own e-books.
Below is a photo of me at the developers workshop.I did not participate but dropped by to see the many activities taking place at apple Store.Thanks to Richard for snapping this shot using my iPad.By the way,I used Instagram apps here.This made me think hard on how to make an apps that sells like Instagram.
