So, I thought I’d be in the new Apple store on Regent Street early Saturday morning and, possibly, bagging a goodie bag. But, walking out of the office at around 7pm on Friday and passing the store — the construction boards were removed on Wednesday revealing the colours used for the iPod Mini — I saw people camping outside!
I thought that by the morning they would have gone, but when I arrived there at 10am, there was queue going a few blocks. My hope of witnessing the opening gone, I resolved to visit some time during the work week. It’s just a hop from the office anyway.
Having spent the last two days moving house, I may be late on this. But, in case you did not know yet, Mac OS X 10.3.6 is out!

I will be there.
