Looking forward to the opening of the Stanford store. But Apple
needs to remove the two damaged surplus freeway berms placed in
front of the University Ave store shortly after it opened last year.
They look awful, destroy the whole visual effect of the store
facade, as well as the University Ave streetscape. If a barrier of
some kind is needed there, they could construct an attractive iron rail fence for example. Surely Apple can do better than this on
University Ave in Downtown Palo Alto. Steve Jobs used to say "a fence must look good on both sides".

I'm sure the happiest people (other than the flocks of customers who crowd into the current store) will be the Windows store staff who will be relieved not to have the "noisy neighbor" always attracting so many people, and suffering so badly by comparison.

I know that many Palo Altans absolutely revere Apple and will treat this store as a destination, but for others, what a bore. As an Apple customer and user, I still don't see reason for the hype. As for Stanford Shopping Center, the old "Scientific Revolution" store had more interesting content than an Apple appliance store. Perhaps these themes may be combined without need for a "genius" to explain them. ;)
