ComputerTown to open under new management
Tech Superpowers, Inc. has posted information on ComputerTown reopening under new management:
"it's the first effort made by two resellers in the same area banding together in order to provide the same concept as the Apple Stores, but with much more depth. ComputerTown, under new management, will provide the storefront experience in a solutions-based area so people can come in and use iMacs, G4's, and portables in the same solutions that they might at home or in the office. Tech Superpowers, Inc., our company, will provide the 'genius' - technical knowledge, Apple certified hardware service, and at-home and in-office troubleshooting.
Together, we'll be able to provide the same experience that the Apple Store does in terms of knowledgeable help and showing what people want to see - but also with the ability to provide all levels of hardware and software support, including sending knowledgeable people to your doorstep!"

NYT: \"Apple retail stores sell a way of life
The New York Times has posted an article discussing Apple's new retail stores. The article calls the company's new venture an "aggressive move during an economic slowdown," and although some analysts remain skeptical of any computer company's ability to branch into retail stores, the article states that the Apple Stores are "a notion of consumerism that is less about the product than a way of life."
