Apple Store Will (Allegedly) Open on May 16

1210103288We have a confession to make. Your friends here at Boston Daily are Mac geeks. Flannery and I each got shiny new MacBooks recently, and our loved ones have started to worry about our slavish devotion to the machines. Also, our refusal to put the thing down and get in the shower is starting to bother them. (ed: speak for yourself)

So we’re thrilled beyond words to read (via Universal Hub) that the new Apple store location on Boylston Street is (allegedly) opening on May 16.

In its typical tight-lipped way, Apple’s PR team wouldn’t give us any details about when the store will (allegedly) open, but promised to send word when the company is prepared to lift the Green Monster-inspired facade off the front of what will (allegedly) be the largest Apple store in the world.

Gizmodo paints a pretty picture of what 815 Boylston Street will (allegedly) look like.

The store, in the city’s historic Back Bay district, looks like a four-story glass cube. . . . According to a store employee, it’s a good thing Boylston Street is so big: Apple estimates 1,500-2000 customers/hour will visit — more than 10 times the 160/hour that the average store gets.

Of course, commenters on the New York-based site have to have a little fun at our expense.

You forgot to add that with the normal construction in Boston this piece of crap won’t open for another 11 years and it’ll kill 7 people in the mean time.

It’ll then go on to not sell anything for 86 Years.

The only thing that’s more unbecoming than our refusal to turn off our Macs and bathe is your jealousy, Rbastid. If that is your real name.
