Well, you COULD make an appointment once you're in the store by using 
one of their computers. But by then they're probably already booked for 
the day. Still, I give the Apple Store points for having demo computers 
that have FULL internet access so you can try them out to your heart's 

Now, their hiring attitudes... that's another story. They called me up 
twice to participate in their hiring seminars for the new store, and I 
went. I was not one of the chosen ones for another round of interviews 
either time. When I finally visited the flagship store, the reason was 
obvious; I saw about 30 employees on the floor, not a one of whom looked 
over 40, let alone 50. I was far from the only person at the hiring 
thing in my age cohort, and I can't imagine that we were ALL 
incompetent, so I'm convinced that we just didn't fit in with the image 
they are trying to project. It's possible that the EEOC might be 
interested, but personally I don't want to get involved with lawyers and 
law suits.
