SoHo hits 2M customers

The in New York City celebrated its two millionth customer, according to Apple: "Around 4:00 p.m. on Friday, August 6th, our two millionth customer, Christine Quiqless, came through the front door of the Apple Store in SoHo. She was awarded a 12-inch iBook G4, Silver iPod mini, Airport Express and other gifts....While shopping elsewhere, Christine begged her friend to stop by the Apple Store to look at 12-inch iBooks. Her PC laptop had recently died and was ready to make the 'switch' to Mac. After winning, she decided to spend some time shopping for a printer and other accessories for her new computer."

    AppleStore SoSo

    ...Can't wait till the Apple Store SoHO celebrates the two million hour waited by a customer to speak to someone at the Genius bar.

    Jeepers...I shouldn't have to wait 3 hours have my broken ipod remote replaced.

    Novel Idea: What if they staffed the tech support area with some non-geniuses? I'd be willing to wait at least 15 minutes to talk to someone capable of giving me a working cable. ;)

    ...

    So how do they keep track of how many customers they've had entering the store?

    Apple = Big Brother?

    counter

    At the SoHo store if you listen carefully, you hear a click as you walk in the doors. Peeking around, looks like there are counters, just like at most retail stores. Bam.
