The new Fifth Avenue store is the same as the old store, only more efficient
Without a new product or a shortage of iPads to draw a crowd, there were no lines outside the big glass cube of the iconic Apple Store on Manhattan's Fifth Avenue Monday morning.
The traffic in the subterranean retail space was also relatively light, which made it easy to count the changes wrought by the redesign that Apple (AAPL), celebrating the 10th anniversary of the first Apple Store last week, promised its employees would make the company's retail outlets "even more iconic."
Here, by the numbers, is what I saw:
|The medical marijuana ad that never aired, despite contrary media headlines|
|The bull market at 5: Not old yet|
|Boeing reports wing cracks on Dreamliners|
|China to fight pollution with drones|
|Chrysler Group orders donated Vipers destroyed|
