“iCloud Backup” – Marco.org
I figured that a “Genius” would quickly figure out whether it still had iOS 4, and if so, would just update it to iOS 5 or 6 and then set up iCloud backup.

But instead of doing what I assumed would be a non-destructive update, the Genius did a restore. And, apparently, didn’t explain what that was going to mean.

Feature: Retail stores, Apple’s risky gamble that paid off big time | 9 to 5 Mac Feature: Retail stores, Apple’s risky gamble that paid off big time | Apple Intelligence
On May 19, 2001 Steve Jobs took a cherry-picked entourage of journalists on a tour of the company’s first brick-and-mortar retail outlet located in the second level of Tysons Corner Center in Virginia. “Literally half the store is devoted to solutions. Because people don’t just want to buy personal computers any more. They want to know what they can do with them,” he later explained in the above promotional video shown to the gathering of devotees at the Macworld Expo 2001 conference.

As with all things Apple, however, pundits were quick to predict a huge fail. The store couldn’t possibly earn enough to cover the cost of overhead, let alone keep itself running, they argued. Naysayers came out of the woodwork all guns blazing, warning Apple would pay dearly for experimenting with such an expensive and unproven concept. Some critics even called Apple crazy to gamble away its fortunes. It wasn’t just the pundits and haters.
