Apple Mecca is being built. Controversial to muslims?
2006-09-29 02:08:32Recently heard that a massive Apple Computer store going up in midtown Manhattan, aka “Apple Mecca,” will be the company’s first retail outlet open 24 hours a day.
The store–which will reportedly be 25,000 square feet–is located in the underground retail plaza of the General Motors Building on Fifth Avenue between 58th and 59th streets, according to a February Think Secret report.
I don't understand what they're going to fill the space with. One floor for laptops, one for iMacs, one for cameras and wireless networks, one for iTunes, iPods, and speakers, and then one for G5s, eMacs, and software? Sounds pretty empty to me.
Yah, maybe they'll add coffee-house type areas on every floor. Sure, their products are nice. But 24/7? What's the reasoning? and calling it Apple Mecca. Would it be controversial to the muslims as it is a holy symbol of the ka'aba? I dont know you'll be the judge. Just hope that no terrorist bomber threat is going to blew up the whole Apple store. That would make another sad history.
