Meanwhile, MacNN reader Christopher Lockhart offered some more details on the Apple retail store we noted in Johannesburg, South Africa: "I went past the store situated in Sandton Square Mall (part of Sandton City Mall) last night and the wraps are off. While the shop looks identical to an AppleStore, it is actually an 'Apple Centre'. As far as I understand, from a conversation I had many months ago, the store is a joint effort with Apple South Africa and a local dealer, Cool Apple Buddy. I think there may be another store opening in Cape Town, as a joint venture with Project 3. Apparently, both these dealers were chosen for their long and successful experience in running a retail store."
