Tiger and new stores

Next Friday, 29 April, Apple Store Birmingham (UK) will open. That is the second official retail store of Apple in Europe, and the only others that are outside US* are the stores in Japan )full list). That occurring the same day OS X 10.4 will be released makes it sound like a very interesting night for the sales for both Bullring, and all other retail stores. At least Longhorn will not compete for Tiger for a long time, since it will take another year and a half before it will out for public.

Vivek Sambhara leaked out the 10.4 pre-release to p2p networks earlier, was caught for it, and I am amazed he is not in any more trouble for that.

* More stores in Texas will open later this year.
