The Apple T-Shirt

I love Apple, love everything they do because they put so much thought into every touch. Even when they give away a t-shirt for a store opening, they do it right, with good design.

Their newest store opened in my back yard this past weekend and I went because they were giving away a free t-shirt to the first 1,000 people and it was so close!

I ended up getting two shirts, they gave me one and my son also got one, which I really didn't expect since he is all of two years old. I opened mine when I got home to see what design was printed on it and was so impressed, I took pictures as I opened the other one to show how much they really embrace design in every facet of the user experience.

Its a commitment to carry that through every aspect of the users experience, from turning on the computer to getting a free t-shirt. I mean, really, how many people would line up if Microsoft decided to open a store? Its not like the cost is prohibitive, Microsoft could do it if they wanted, they just don't think that much about the users experience and carry that all the way through.

Anyway, enough about that, here are the pictures of the Apple t-shirt;

and on a final note, the t-shirt was a "Beefy-T", not some cheap, no-name brand that is going to fall apart in the washing machine. User experience.

My best friend in StLouis works at a place that does marketing for apple. We've gotten those apple shirts and they are NICE!!

Now that I think of it, I've never even seen a MS shirt...
But I like both apple and MS, I can't pick a "side".
