On September 18, 2002, Cheryl Vedoe, Vice President of Education Products and Marketing at Apple, announced that she was leaving to become CEO at Apex Learning. This kinda' left Apple in a pinch during difficult times. I think she could have enabled AppleShare and worked at both places. If Jobs can juggle Apple and Pixar, the same should go for his VPs!

On August 18, 2002, customers arriving at the new Apple Soho Store in Manhattan—home of the Million Dollar Glass Staircase, special ordered by Steve Jobs for his largest retail outfit to date—were regretfully turned away as sad Mac Geniuses handed out Jaguar promotional flyers. According to witnesses, several police were in the store, and some portions of the floor were closed off by a police line. Details surrounding the event are vague, and Apple SoHo staff have been ordered silent about the ordeal, but the general concensus is that the store was robbed. No one knows what was taken, except for the store managers. I would have gone and rubbernecked myself, but it isn't nice to stop and stair.
