This week’s Yi-Tan call starts momentarily:
In a supposedly online, dot-com world, why are Apple’s real-world stores doing so well? What are they serving at the Genius Bars?
Apple’s revenues per store are on an amazing growth curve, and the company has nowhere near the number of outlets of a Best Buy or CompUSA. As we sip on some Smart Water, let’s examine these questions:
* Has Apple found the sweet spot with digital natives?
* Who will compete with Apple? Where is the iPod’s Avis?
* What comes next? What does Starbucks have to do with this trend?
As always, an IRC Chat www.seedwiki.com/wiki/yi-tan/irc_chat.cfm?wpid=163280: www.seedwiki.com/wiki/yi-tan/irc_chat.cfm?wpid=163280> > will be available during the call, here.
