All day and all of the night

Apple's flagship SoHo store in New York will remain open 24 hours a day until Xmas


Sure, the Internet is great for Holiday shopping in your bathrobe at 3 a.m., but sometimes you just feel like throwing on some shoes and doing a little real-life late-night shopping. Even in the Big Apple, 24-hour outlets are hard to find, and there are times you want something a little more upscale than the wares at your corner bodega--like maybe a new MacBook Pro.

Starting today, December 13, Apple's flagship SoHo store in New York will remain open 24 hours a day, until 11:59 p.m. on December 24 (the glass-box Fifth Avenue store is always open 24/7). With a hefty collection of semi-new products on the shelves, notably the Core 2 Duo versions of the MacBook and MacBook Pro and the 5.5G video iPod, Apple's company-owned-and-operated retail outlets are sure to be packed all month.

Fortunately, we live right around the corner from the SoHo Apple store, so the next time we wake up with a late-night craving for some Ben and Jerry's and an 80GB iPod, we'll be all set.
