15 years ago yesterday, Steve Jobs introduced the first Apple Store Posted on Friday, May 20th, 2016 at 5:18 am. PTWritten by Dave Mark It is amazing to see how well that design has aged. It’s really the products that show how long ago this was made. SockRolid I went to the grand opening of the original Palo Alto Apple Store. Took photos of Steve Jobs and Phil Schiller with my old Nikon N90, on Kodak T-Max 400. (That’s a type of black and white film.) Michael Savich That red hotline phone tho Colin Robertson Oh man I remember those black shelves of software. Credit to Apple though because I don’t remember when they disappeared.One thing that seems to have gotten away from the stores is a focus on solutions. I hope the Ahrendts leadership brings a focus back to what these fancy glass and aluminum tools can help us achieve, as opposed to just a showcase of drool-inducing electronic jewelry.Also, “I’m not a genius…”. LOL! Right Steve, riiiight….
