That’s me above in the dark green fleece jacket

The grand opening was very cool. Click here to access the offical site.

I never expected so many people to be at this opening. I got there around 7:40am and was about 80th or so in line. The store opened up right at 10am, with a “10…9…8…7…6…5” countdown to when the doors first opened. I spent about 90 mins walking around in the store and playing with all of the iPods, Powerbooks, iMacs and cinema displays…. pure heaven for a Mac nut like me. Even caught up with a good friend I hadn’t seen in some years, who was there in line with his daughter. (see first picture in the linked SLTrib article)

Check this site for the best coverage. And thanks to Kelly for granting me permission to post the above picture that he took of me (second person from the left) inside the Apple Store (not intentional, just being in the right place at the right time).

UPDATE: Found another link to KSL news on the Apple Store opening. The picture in the lower right corner has another shot of me in the store (last person on the right) Yeah, I know.. another shameless plug… what can I say!
