Real horrorshow

Is it just me or do the new Apple mini stores look like the Korova Milk Bar from A Clockwork Orange?

Not that I’m complaining. I can certainly imagine hanging out with my droogs in an ultra-hip cube of digital consumerism:

"And we sat in the Korova Milk Bar trying to make up our rassoodocks what to do with the evening. The Korova sold milk plus, milk plus velocet, synthemesc or drencrom which was what we were drinking. And this would sharpen you up for a bit of the old ultraviolence."

Although, in reality, I think we’d content ourselves with some nice iPod accessories.

I guess I’ll have the chance to find out for sure if an Apple store opens in Brighton:

"A source told Macworld that, in addition to London and Birmingham, Apple is rumoured to be considering: Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Oxford, Cambridge, Brighton and Southampton."
