At the seventh annual Success By Design conference at the Rhode Island Convention Center, Apple VP of retail Ron Johnson said the company's "science museum-like stores work," according to The Providence Journal. He said that Apple Stores are sparse, open and have a feeling that's more like a hands-on exhibit at a science museum. Johnson said the idea was to make customers feel as though they are in a public place such as a library. "We wanted an atmosphere that was inviting, not intimidating, forward-looking, warm, interactive," he said. "And it makes you feel intelligent just by being there." Shocked

The term swelled head means someone who is too much impressed with themselves.

I'm trying to think of a term from some who is easily impressed. I keep coming up with sucker, but that is rather crude. Maybe a pigon, mark, easy make, chump, sitting duck, fool, just to name a few.

Hmmm... I'm not doing too good, feeling kinda mentally deficient... Maybe I should visit the nearest store. Rolling Eyes
