apple-store-glattzentrum-provisorium-opening-17

What do you do when you are remodeling your store, but need to stay open for business? Apple solved that problem by simply moving their store outdoors. Well, sort of.

According to German Apple blog MacPrime, the Apple Retail Store in the Glattzentrum mall in Wallisellen, Switzerland is getting a complete remodel. In order to keep the shop open while renovations are being made, Apple used a bit of ingenuity and imagination and came up with the idea to simply move the store to the “front lawn” until the job is finished.

SEGA Releases Crazy Taxi: City Rush for iPad and iPhone

Crazy Taxi City Rush 5

When your favorite childhood memories are brought back to life years later, it can be an anxious experience. As games, toys, and movies are reinvented for the modern age, the things that made them fun for us as kids can be forgotten in the redesign.
