I found myself in the Short Hills Mall a few days ago (technically, “The Mall at Short Hills” but saying that makes me want to vomit and defecate at the same time). They have an Apple Computer store. The place is totally done up… if you squint a little, it looks like The Disney Store for high-tech adults. It’s as if The Sharper Image is for mechanical engineers while The Apple Store is for information (music, images, literary, etc) engineers. The vibe was palpable. I understand the hype.
