Video: Apple Store Grand Opening - Haywood Mall

Thousands of Apple enthusiasts, and more than a few iPad buyers crowded the Haywood Mall on Saturday for the Grand Opening of their Greenville, SC location. I dropped by, pulled out the Flip Video camera and a Droid X that I've been playing with for evaluation purposes and grabbed some shots of the crowd. All of the video you see in this movie was shot with the Flip Video SD version. All of the still shots come from the Droid X.

The event was great spectacle. There was a tremendous crowd and a couple of hundred Apple Store employees to help. Before calling out the countdown, the employees marched around the assembled crowd and yelled out several cheers. Nice job. Welcome to town.

If you are in the video, why not post a comment here? Glad we could share the experience.
