Doesn’t Apple have a way to know where the person it’s sending an email to is located?
I got this come-on from the tech giant today, urging me to partake of various interesting activities “at an Apple Store near you.” Such things as:
- Take a Photo Walk. And snap pictures that pop with Portrait Lighting.
- Join a Sketch Walk. And expand your palette with Procreate.
- Stop by for a Music Lab. And define your sound with GarageBand.
- Drop in for Kids Hour. And spark their imagination and creativity.
OK, so maybe I wouldn’t actually take you up on these activities. I’m not that starved for stuff to do. I never have been. Back when I was at the newspaper, and an editor’s meeting would come up about the Weekend section or the community calendars we’d run in the paper, I’d always wonder what it would be like to be someone who actually had to go out looking for something to do. I had trouble imagining it.
Anyway, if I did want to do any of this stuff, I’d be out of luck. When I click on the link in the email that promises to let me “Explore all the amazing things you can do,” I am immediately identified as being in the “Augusta area.”
Yep, that’s right — not only does Charleston have an Apple Store and we don’t… not only does Greenville have an Apple Store and we don’t… but little Augusta has an Apple Store — and in case you haven’t picked up on it, we don’t.
I think they’re just taunting me. Taunting all of us. Because they hate us…
“Join a Sketch Walk. And expand your palette with Procreate.”
Excuse me? That does not sound appropriate for a walk.
