Chicago Set Up for AT&T Wi-Fi Hotspot

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 07:22 PM

"AT&T has launched its promised Wi-Fi hotspot in Chicago much earlier than expected. The access covers Wrigleyville, the neighboring restaurants and shops surrounding Wrigley Field. Streets and outdoor areas to the immediate south, east and west sides of the stadium have the Wi-Fi coverage."

They have also set up similar Wi-Fi areas in Times Square in New York City and downtown Charlotte, NC. Anything to help the 3G right?

Hey Architects, Design an Apple Store

"Chicago's Halsted Street will soon be the site of a unique Apple Store -- the first with three sides exposed. When seated on the odd piece of land, the store will offer visibility from every direction and 650 linear feet of storefront."

The folks over at ifoAppleStore.com have this nifty little contest in which you design-types might have an interest. This space is a triangle shaped swath of land and they want to see what you can do with the space. Its all about the exterior, but if you want to go the extra mile and do something about the interior feel free. The contest runs until June 15th, and the winner will receive a $100.00 USD Apple Gift Card.

Chicago's Northside to get Apple Store

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 12:00 PM

"My current city of Chicago isn't really suffering for Apple Stores -- the one on Michigan Avenue kind of makes up for any other missed areas around here, as it's the nicest and biggest one I've seen (but then again, I haven't been to the ones in New York near Mr. Rose). But it's good to hear that we're going to be getting another store, this one a little bit outside the Loop, on the city's northside."

So after dropping plans to build a store on State Street in downtown Chicago, Apple signed a lease recently for 18,000 square-feet of land at 1560 N. Halsted Street in Chicago. The store is expected to be approximately 15,000 square-feet when it is completed in early 2010. Plenty of access as the location intersects a couple of bus lines as well as the Red Line (rail system).
