It says something about a company that its internal marketing materials are just as polished and every bit as aspirational as the ones that it looses upon the rest of the world, like this internal App...

I stopped watching at this point.

Does Apple seriously believe it's customers have such empty lives as to be "transformed" by visiting one of their stores?

They (Apple execs) must be brainwashed or extremely arrogant to think like that....

Well George Carlin once quoted: When you are born into this world, you are given a ticket to the freak-show. When you are born in America, you are given a ticket to the freak-show but you get a front row seat, and some of those people have pens and pads.


Now don't get me wrong, I'm not hating on anyone or any country, but I think you made the right decision moving to NZ.

Just sayin.

Awww, aye? well kia ora bro, and here I was thinking the entire time you were a born and bred pom (no offense).

But yeah that's pretty bad, it's like I always say: Don't let advertising get the better of you, or you might one day find yourself fighting over something without fully understanding why.


But that was pretty funny though.

Ah, planning ahead I see- good thinking.

I don't know about you mate but if I was a new Apple employee and was forced to watch that tripe, I'd be having second thoughts about the company I was working for.....

Apple IS a cult. Just look at the amount of fan sites and magazines there are... Cult of Mac? Really? It can't get more obvious than that. Also, I am selling Apple products and we were told to look for NLP methods (massive hints about it during the sales training). Everything is designed so that it attacks the customers right in their weak spots, but people need to be able to buy their products, thus the low success here.

I can't help but think "Scientology" when i watch it.

The only good memory of an Apple store, is when i visited the one in London with my wife and a friend. I was stood under the glass staircase and a SMOKING hot woman in a short skirt walked up it and i saw everything

My wife wasn't impressed, but it was worth it.

Because they want you to happily and willingly give them your money, not force you. It's manipulative, but makes people happy and excited about what they buy. If I have to be honest, that's a very sad "happy" state and narrow point of view, but if there were no sheep the wolves would starve...

Never been in a Apple store. I sometimes wonder what would happen if I did... I see all the staff standing there and can't help but be afraid.
