Genius Screen

Last week I ventured into an Apple Computer Store at a local mall. Trust me, this is a big deal. I hate stores, shopping, sales, coupons and everything else associated with Malls. I literally drag my body from store to store as if my legs were chained to a fifty pound ball…But I must admit, I love Apple Stores. Every time I go into one I am amazed. The layout, organization and method of operation intrigues me. Apple Stores are completely hands on…by that I mean the configuration of the store encourages you to touch and experiment with all of the products. Now the point of this blog is not to promote business for Apple. During the above mentioned visit I saw something I thought would be useful at the registry of deeds… Toward the far end of the store there was a counter referred to as “the Genius Bar”. Genius is the name of a new iPod application that selects music according to the listener’s taste. I’ve got it. It is fabulous…but back to the registry. Above the Genius counter were two large screen monitors each flashing “tips” on how to use Apple products. Wow, that’s great, I thought. My head raced…“we can do this at the registry”. More ideas fill my head…“Using Windows Movie Maker (sorry Apple) I can develop a slide show that will “give tips” to new users explaining how to use the registry of deeds”. And best of all…this idea only requires a monitor and computer to work, both of which we have, so it will cost us $zero. So, coming soon…the Middlesex North Registry of Deeds Genius Screen…Sounds too egotistical, right…Well, maybe not genius. How about Help Screen.
