December 1 is World AIDS Day. And you know this because Bono is all over. Bono is a man with a mission and he’s out there for a cause–a very good cause. Do your little part with this.

The (very) long wait

The Apple fanboy that I am, I’ve fallen into this crazy habit of checking out Apple stores wherever in the world I happen to be. So, I’m at the Apple Store in Galleria, in St. Louis, Missouri. This is the 24th Apple Store I’ve been to. It’s Monday afternoon, at a mall. The store is busy, but not nearly full. In my hands are a couple of boxes I plucked out of the display shelves, an Apple Battery Charger and a Mophie Juice Pack Reserve. And I pulled out my wallet from the back pocket of my jeans, ready. I’ve been at the store almost an hour. And so far, not a single blue t-shirt has approached me, let alone acknowledged my existence. I waited, and waited, and waited. After almost 2 hours, and after taking the humiliating initiative of finally approaching a blue shirt (who I learned goes by the name Barbara), I can now confidently declare that this Apple Store holds the record for the longest time I’ve been in one without anyone saying hello. Congratulations? Even during peak hours at my favorite Apple Store, the one in 5th Avenue in New York, someone invariably finds the time to say hello within minutes of stepping in, almost without fail.

U P D A T E: It was a very strange feeling to be ignored inside a lively place such as an Apple Store. It feels very surreal, lonely, and surprisingly, offensive.

If you’re in New York City …

with one comment

Go see Anton Kawasaki, a.k.a. “that guy with crutches”:

Anton will be talking about his iPhone photos, processes and techniques at the SoHo Apple Store in NYC on Friday, June 24th, 2011 at 7 PM.

Apple Store SoHo:

Since the introduction of the iPhone, Anton Kawasaki has been taking up-close and personal photos that capture intimate moments of New Yorkers on the street. Join him for a special discussion, moderated by iPhoneographer Sion Fullana, and see Anton’s recent work, get valuable tips for taking photos with an iPhone—his camera of choice—and learn about ways to reach a wider audience.

Who is he?

Anton has been an editor, writer, comic book store owner, and much more. He is also a music junkie, Apple Inc. devotee, and soy chai latte addict.  Anton has gotten lots of recognition for his NYC street photography (which he takes exclusively with his iPhone). His work has been featured in published magazines, online sites, and photo exhibitions, and he was recently a winner of the “Ten Best Ten” photo contest that included over 10,000 entries.

By the way, Anton will have a solo Hipstamatic exhibitions that will surely be worth watching out for in San Francisco and New York later this year.
