Was so stoked about today! Not because I'm a big fan, as anyone who knows me will know I'm not (just iOS 😬), but because it's a big step forward for tech in SG. By choosing Singapore to open its first store in SEA in, it shows that we have the attention of big companies in Tech. Same-day product launches, trials, deeper product integration (like FeLiCa NFC for Japan), better after-sales support, can now be a possibility for people living in these parts of the world, breaking the tradition of having to wait for a period of time after releasing in US/EUR.
And you gotta admit no other company is as meticulous in their product and store designs as Apple. Save for a few recent exceptions but we'll save that for another day.
