Tokyo is the greatest electric light parade on the planet, the world’s consumer electronics epicenter. I was pleased to discover while traveling last week that it’s also a haven for Macdom, even when there’s no expo in town.
Apple is all over Japan. Eight-story tall banners advertising the new iMacs graced electronics stores in Akihabara and Shinjuku. JR train cars were plastered inside with Aqua and ice-colored ads for the iBook. I even saw men and women of various ages sporting Apple-logo shirts and clothing.
