The first Apple Store opened on May 19th 2001. Next month Apple will celebrate the 10 year anniversary of a mega successful store concept. AppleInsider reports that Apple restricts retail employee vacation requests in May. Employees are supposed to not take off between May 20th and May 22nd.
Apple might throw a big party, but nobody knows what will really go on in late May. Obviously it will be nice if Apple releases a hot new product. The next upcoming rumored releases are the white iPhone 4 and the 2011 iMac. The iPhone 5 is expected to be released in September and will miss the Apple Store birthday party.
Apple has opened over 300 stores worldwide in the past 10 years. The flagship Apple Stores are temples for Apple fans. The architecture on some of the Apple Store is stunning. Microsoft and Sony among others have tried to copy this concept, but have either failed or are far behind.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
