    My wife, my neighbors, and I all won iTunes downloads (1 free song).

    I was one scratch card away from winning the 15" PowerBook. The girl who was handing out tickets came over and asked if I'd like one. I said sure. She asked the guy next to me. He said sure. We both scratched off our tickets. I won a free song. He won the PowerBook. Sadly, he didn't even seem to be the least bit excited about it. :wtc:

    Any other true Mac geeks that went to their local Apple stores? If so, anything interesting?

    There was a guy in a Tigger (from Winnie the Pooh) costume at the Apple store here in Austin.

    By the way, anyone else notice how the "scenery" at the Apple store has improved ten-fold since the iPods have become fashion accesories. :bigthumb:

I wish i could of gone in :( It's wierd I haven't even gotten my first Mac, I used to be anti-mac, and now I can't wait to get it, and love everything Mac. I switched FAST.

    I was surprised to see that when I arrived at nearly 8:00 that there was still a line to get in the place. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy after taking so much crap from all my "friends" and co-workers years back when they were on the "Apple's going out of business tomorrow" bandwagon and I kept insisting they were idiots. :)

    I was at the Apple Store in Pleasanton, CA (Stoneridge Mall), brought my girlfriend hoping for an educational discount. Found out they wouldn't sell Tiger with the discount at the store. :squint:

    A couple "very unique" people in the lineup. One supernerd who felt the need to bring his laptop and spend the entire time walking with it in hand trying to connect to the stores wireless network. He was Cool! :greddy:

    I wont 10% off any purchase.
    I WAS going to use my student discount to buy 10.4 as the lady at the door said it was no problem, but then when i went to pay, it turns out Apple no longer does business with MBNA for the apple credit account. :mad: Before they would call in and do the purchase over the phone. :(
    Not so anymore. :mad::wtc: so i went home empty handed when i MIGHT have bought 10.4, and an ipod shuffle.

    damn it, if I knew they were giving away stuff as well, I would have gone. I was in vegas and knew they had a store at Fashion Show but didn't feel the need to go that day and leave our group (haha at the photos).

    I did convince my mom to get a powerbook instead of an ibook, even though im more excited about getting her to make the switch in the first place.

    Man, I didn't know they were giving anything away. There's one about an hour from me, but I wasn't doing anything anyway.
