    Went to Apple store last night and man

    There were two customers looking to return something's and about 25 blue shirted Appletards standing around. So I asked one, "what's your problem?" He was like, "who me?" Then I started yelling in the store loud, "8 CORES! 8 CORES!" And all those Appletards just stood there and took it and didn't do a damn thing because they knows its the truth. I totally dropped science on them and not one of them had a comeback.

      More garbage from Tyrone. Here are some FACTS:

      Apple CEO Tim Cook reminded us on Tuesday that 370 million people visited an Apple Store during 2012. It's a stunning number, and we thought it would be interesting to put together some pretty charts that helps put that total in perspective.
      This doesn't make for a direct comparison, of course. Disney's parks are far larger, but there are only 13 of them compared to roughly 394 Apple Stores that were open in 2012. There are other considerations, but our intent is simply to offer some perspective on Apple's foot traffic.

      A more interesting number to us, however, is the notion that far more people visited an Apple Store than went to a Major League Baseball game in 2012 (74.9 million, according to ESPN). Again, it's not direct comparison, but it does put Apple's popularity in comparison.

      We found it interesting because baseball is an American institution. It's monolithic. It's a thing, so to speak, but many more people are taking a trip to an Apple Store than watching a ball game live.

      That difference is even more stark if you look at the number of people who went to an NFL football game in 2012 (17.2 million, according to ESPN). Both sporting platforms have far, far more viewers on TV than ticket buyers in a stadium, but we're talking visitors, here.

      How about the biggest TV events in the U.S? How do they compare? The Grammy Awards in 2012 claimed 39.9 million viewers of the award ceremony, less than a third of Apple's total. That's a one-night event, but again, our point is perspective.

      The Super Bowl is bigger still, with an average viewership of 111.3 million people watching the Super Bowl in 2012, according to Reuters. The NFL claimed that more than 160 million people total watched the game for at least 6 minutes. Note that this is still not as many people as Apple saw in its retail stores.

      One area where Apple is dwarfed is the number of people buying movie tickets. In the U.S. alone, some 1.37 billion people bought movie tickets in 2012, an impressive number considering that U.S. population sits at 315.3 million, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

      Still, as shown in the chart below, Apple's total retail traffic is a surprisingly significant percentage of that total, at 27 percent.

    • How much is Samdung paying you to post this garbage? I have a Galaxy and I'm switching to IPhone in 2 months.

    • Sounds like yo need to see a pshchiatrics or a clinical psychologist. Don't worry be a man and set up an appointment and later on yo will thank me.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

      • No dip wad. The reality is is that the Samsung Galaxy S4 has 8 cores and the iPhone has 2 at best. You fanboys always try to claim that Apple is premium product when the truth is that Apple suckers you into a 2 core fone for the price of 8. Apple store is filled with college drop outs who mislead people on the amount of cores. When more people realize that Samsung has 8 cores and Apple has been cheating them of cores it's game over for Apple. Know your facts before you debate and don't get them from the burnouts at the Apple store.
