Filed under: Software

In 2001 Apple was still at the beginning of its slow transition from the Mac OS 9 era into the X one and also building up what would become a prominent role in the desktop video market.

In may of that year a promotional video was released in which Steve Jobs showed off the first Apple Store: in the last part the camera pans on the aisles and we can take a look at the main software offerings from Apple, still a mix of classic product lines and solutions coming from the NeXT acquisition.

The first Tokyo Apple Store joined the 70+ the company had opened in the USA since May 2001 and, according to Apple’s senior vice president of Retail Ron Johnson it was meant to bring “the best personal computer buying experience to one of the greatest shopping destinations in the world”.
