I just had the privilege of going to the “mother ship” in Cupertino for some iTunes meetings. We had lunch at Cafe Mac’s inside 1 Infinite Loop, check the tweet timeline for pics. We walked passed this display on the way in:
Yes, this is Mac power at it’s finest. 20 synchronized 30 inch Apple Cinema HD Displays. Quite the display with an interactive component that is a sign of how much this company has changed another technology game…called the smartphone. I knew iTunes is currently selling more apps than music, but had no idea they were downloading at 3,000 per/minute. What you are looking at is the most popular 20,000 apps with a real-time icon animation that illuminates and grows in size (like the mac dock when you do a roll-over of an icon) every time it’s downloaded.
Impressive, as you stand back it looks like water drops hitting this massive display. It’s the new OS…it’s the first computer screen for the masses…it’s the ultimate lifestyle device…and it’s the third time Apple has changed the game in a major way.
