Who really thought it was a good idea to take someone from PC World to run Apple retail?
PC World UK that is?

I thought it made complete sense for a brand renowned for screwing its customers to employ someone who successfully ran a chain of shops renowned for screwing its customers.

Overly harsh, Dave. Up until about a year ago I found Apple store people pretty helpful, moderately knowledgeable, not pressuring me to buy stuff I didn’t want or need. Had some good service for in- and out-warranty repairs. More recently… not so much.
PC World – sure, I’d rather stick my fingers in the mains.

I find PC World amazing. They have these vast out-of-town stores with about 10 units of floor space per unit of display. It’s like running a corner shop in a warehouse.

Both businesses specialise in selling very expensive cables?

I’ll run yer shop for 35 million quid instead of 36. There you go – instant cost saving.
What do these retail wonks actually do?

Got that dead right.
Can well remember taking a Firewire cable to the checkout at PissyWorld. The resulting sensation was remarkably similar to being mugged.
