Leaked internal Apple Store video explains how retail outlets can be "tranformational to your life"

Apple opened first retail store in 2001, now has more than 400

Long before iPad 4, iPhone 5 and the iPad mini graced our world, Apple opened its first Apple Stores in 2001. Here's an internal video from last year leaked onto the Web this week. The glass-and-chrome stores were Steve Jobs' vision for boosting consumer sales via a great shopping experience. The feel-good video is chock full of Apple's bravado/pretentiousness, as Apple discusses its philosophy on the retail store experience and making stores fit into their locations, especially in famous cities such as London and Paris.
