The Apple Store

As I've mentioned before, I'm currently having fairly severe laptop problems. Since I'm currently in Tokyo this meant a trip to the Apple Store in Ginza.

My last two [1, 2] vists to an Apple retail store have been to the Pasadena store. I'd sort of expected that the Ginza store would be like Pasadena, only slightly larger. I guess I wasn't expecting a 5 story Apple cube...

It doesn't look like I'm going to be able to get my laptop fixed, or even get a decent guess at what has gone wrong, until I'm back in the UK though. Which is somewhat unfortunate, but I've solved (or at least patched over) the problem in a predicable way. I bought an Airport Express, and am now hoping that the remaining bits of my laptop will hold together long enough for me to get back into the UK.
