We live in an age where we are never far from our electronics. However, because we take our devices everywhere with us, they oftentimes become damaged on the journey through our day to day lives. Busy as we are, we sometimes need to use our devices and not be forced to hold them. IPad and IPad2 users, this problem has been solved for you! Introducing the Wallee! The Wallee is a protective case for the IPad and IPad2 that is more than just a case. It has its own set of accessories! The Wallee has a centrally located, balanced lock that allows you to attach a kickstand, a hand strap, a wall mount, and a head rest mount. You can now enjoy your IPad or IPad2 anywhere and hands free! These accessories must be purchased separately, but each is fitted to your needs. For example, if you have a passenger in your vehicle that needs to be placated quickly with cartoons or a movie, you can mount your IPad/IPad2 on your headrest and allow it to play. Maybe you wish to use your IPad as a business tool but need to be hands-free? Why, simply use the kickstand to keep the IPad/IPad2 within easy view and keep your hands busy taking care of business! The Wallee is truly a wonder for every IPad/IPad2 user.
Everything is bigger in New York City-the buildings, the crowds, the traffic congestion, and now Apple’s newest retail store. According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple opened a new store in the Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan, New York last week at 10am on Friday, December 9th. This makes the fifth Apple store in New York City and one of three-hundred worldwide. It overlooks the main concourse on the east and northeast balconies. According to Apple, 2,500 people awaited the store’s grand opening and had received nearly 4,000 visitors before noon. To date, this is the biggest of Apple’s stores; spanning 23,000 square feet.
While the store itself has all the necessities of your typical Apple store, aesthetically it’s conformed to the style of the historical landmark. One feature very unique to this store would be the fifteen minute” express classes” on the use of Apple’s products. These classes are intended for commuters who are looking to kill time between departures. Also offered through iPhone apps are self-checkout and personal pick-up services for the customers on the go.
Even though Apple is not sharing revenues (unlike other venders in the building) with the Metropolitan Transit Authority- the company owning the Grand Central Terminal- they believe Apple’s presence quadruples rent and will strongly increase foot traffic to other retailers in the same area. Apple is shelling out $180 per square foot over their ten year lease on the space. Apple’s bill for the commercial space also includes paying $5 million to buy out the lease of the prior tenant, $1.1 million for yearly rent, and $2.5 million for construction. This is certainly a big bite for the big apple! The next time you’re experiencing the enormous grandeur of the city that never sleeps, stop by Grand Central and see Apple’s huge new store for yourself!
Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple, died on October 5, 2011, losing a long battle with pancreatic cancer. He passed peacefully with his family members surrounding him. He was only 56 years old.
In 1976, Jobs co-founded Apple and marketed the world’s first successful personal computer, the Apple II. He changed the worlds of computing, recorded music, and communication.
The world has truly lost a visionary. No one is quite sure what Apple will do without Jobs. He was a true genius and innovator. He was also a good human being according to his friends and family. He will truly be missed.
