Here's the location on OpenStreetMap.
Shame if someone were to add it there, information wanting to be free and all that..... :)
It appears someone has taken steps to cover their tracks after accidentally revealing the existence of a new Apple Store on Apple's map app. Even though the existence of a new "iStore" was one of the worst kept secrets in Edinburgh, it seems someone was determined to maintain its blown cover. Apple has denied making the …
News? VANISHES - wow!
So is it unreasonable Apple would not want people thinking there was a store there BEFORE it was actually open - sounds pretty reasonable to me? Clearly it's a badly kept secret - if meant to be a secret at all when workmen and the local bus company clearly know all about it.
In those terms makes the iPhone seem good value - £500-700 for a phone that you are likely to use many times a day for the next 2-4 years and even if you changed it after 2 years is likely still worth about half it's original value to trade in or sell?
So what's that ~50p a day - compared to how much for a 1 night stay in decent hotel - guess they throw in breakfast though.
Last week, I walked past an unsigned store in a Houston shopping mall. I couldn't work out why there was a cordoned off area in front of it with 5 people waiting. Then I realised that this bland grey warehouse area was an apple store and that even though there were only a few people within the store, the numbers were being limited probably to create the impression of high demand. In terms of visual attraction of the store, I rated it about 2/10. The only thing in it's favour was that it was clean.
We have Apple users within the family, they had to have the latest. They returned their big screen phones after 2 days as their hands aren't big enough!
I use a 6" android phone, but always use two hands and a stylus for emails.
Your Houston experience was the total opposite to mine in Wilmington, Delaware last Friday afternoon. The apple store was heaving with people. IT was the Microsoft store where the staff outnumbered thre customers and there were less than 8 staff. Perhaps the queue was for a new delivery of iPhone 6+ devices.
It goes to show that different places, different results.
Because the locals voted no.
More importantly why sell Apple tat in Scotland.
Everyone knows the average Jock hasnt got two fivers to rub together.
The only conclusion I can reach is that the local junkies go in the store to snort coke off the smooth flat surfaces.
Or warm up some smack on a bent iphone 6.

Do you base your entire opinion of Scotland on Trainspotting?
More to the point, Edinburgh's full of twats. Here's a place for them to congregate.
Disclaimer: I lived there for a decade and loved it. Some great people but loads of twats. They tend to wear rugby shirts and pretend to be highlanders.
On the screenshot in the article, you can see that they still have a displacement between the building outlines and the roads. The area around Canongate is still shown as a large park. And the bridges are shown as crossroads until you zoom in far enough.
Having just returned from "the Athens of the North" I can confirm that the map you have shown in your piece is correct. I saw workers pasting notices saying Apple Store on what is the previous home of Woollies in Princes St. I saw no mention of a date - or, if I did see a date, I did not observe it. ;-)
