Wow, amazing staircase, Apple! Wonder what the combined maximum weight limit is for the people on it. I hope it won't break when the line of people standing in line for the next new Apple product climd the stairs. That would be scary, but still very cool stairway!

Their product is features plentiful of aluminum to give it a luxurious feel. Their store features plentiful of glass to give a spacious feel. And it's insane that the glass stairs can accommodate so many people! Great job, Apple!
