So these steps, they're made of glass?

uh. is the staircase the only thing in the store?

Yea, it's the new iStair.

I think I watched a special about the design the new Apple Store (can't remember where), but the steps are solid glass. I think it's cool. I've seen all the Apple products before anyway.

Every apple store has those glass stairs

fashion vally san diego has no stairs, but if it did i'm sure they would be glass.

Actually there's a relatively sad little one nearby in Arlington, Virginia. It's one level, small enough that one could stand on one side and spit to the other, and a lot of the stuff i'm looking for is at CompUSA, not this Apple store.

Someone stop me, please. If Apple and IKEA merged, they'd be able to make and sell "FRED iStairs". Small ones.
