Not that Apple has to work very hard to get new customers but they are always trying new things.

Like trapping them in an elevator until they all buy iPods (partial truth).  The innocent school group was paying homage to Steve Job's newest store shrine in NY when the fancy glass elevator began to act up.  Forty five minutes later they were all freed from their container and free to shop.  No free iPods were given. See photos and read a first hand account of this action.

Then ponder carefully.  Then sleep on your decision.

But read first- the process is full of challenges and potential online dangers: http://lowendmac.com/menagh/05/1215.html
