Business 2.0 and Paco Underhill on Apple Stores

Business 2.0 - Magazine Article - The Floor Plan With a Plan

Business 2.0 interviews Why We Shop author Paco Underhill about Apple's retail stores.

I'm very impressed with how Apple puts together the layout of their stores. They're inviting, they encourage you to stick around, and they've got soup-to-nuts for the platform.

I still think they may want to turn up the sales pressure a little. I mean, just to the point that an employee asks you if you need help with anything.

I'm waiting to see if we get an Apple Store.

and it won't be a minute too soon: the computer folk at the U bookstore didn't even realize they have single CPU G4s on their own pricelist (prominently displayed at each demo machine).

The good news is I may be Switching.

My boss has offered to buy me a machine (he actually offered to pay for the miniBook, but since there's still a chance he'll wave off, I wanted to make sure I have the miniBook in any case), and I'm pondering it.

I wonder if (barring anything serious, like being forced to use a PC :-)) it doesn't make sense at this point to wait for the PPC970.
