Did Da Vinci invent the iPod?

It is a regular solid, having six congruent square faces, made out of glass panes. It leads underground. It stands proud and impressive on a square in a famous city and will attract thousands of visitors daily. Artefacts can be found in this location that many will stand in front in admiration and wish they could touch and possess, some might even get the chance to do so.

And what bears underneath this glass structure could hold many secrets, yet these secrets are about to be unveiled. Where curators are sales assistants, anagrams are price tags, and the where you might find members of Opus Dei drooling over flat screen monitors and core duo processors, the holy grail is not necessarily what it seems.

Apple Computer's latest retail store, located at 767 Fifth Ave. between 58th and 59th Streets in New York, opened Friday 19th at 6 p.m. EDT. The underground store, which is marked by a 32-foot street-level glass cube with an Apple logo, will stay open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and bears some interesting familiarities with the Louvre in Paris, well, just that is it square and not pyramid shaped, oh and that it sells electronics and does not house fine art.

Maybe Dan Brown will mix us a clever novel together abouth the theories of power and manipulation by Apple?
