"Had southwick wall until you do. And then for applause. Okay, I had town center mall in Atlanta. Okay. You guys haven't been a town ball. Believe me, I would recognize you. Were you a mall rat? No. No, not necessarily. No, I would not call myself a mall rat. Because I wasn't, I didn't sell or consume drugs at the mall. So I wasn't a mall rat. I was like, they're legitimately, like I was there to visit Led Zeppelin box set on cassette that I was saving up to buy. Just to make sure it's still there. Or like I would go to Spencer's and put my hand on the plasma ball, just be like, do you guys have Spencer gifts? I say that like you're from here. I know that 8 people are from San Francisco in this room. You know, Spencer gifts? Okay. Okay. Very titillating place for a young baptist. Oh, it is. Because after the one section, you know what I'm talking about. Plus the posters too. Yeah, but it's funny now as an adult, the one section, I just thought it was like, oh man, and then there are some children here just you don't know what I'm talking about. Maybe she's used lead. I don't know how to do that. But for a young baptist kid, I was just like, I would walk by it and I would pretend like I'm looking at other things and just looking in that section to see what was in it. I remember and now it's just so dumb. The stuff that was in that texture, yeah, yeah. It's like a stud color. I was like, who cares? By the time you're like, oh my God. A guy checking me out yesterday was wearing one. And nothing else. Yeah. Maybe a condom with bells, and that's it. So silly. I remember walking past Victoria's Secret like I was not doing that on purpose, but just kind of like, like I could actually, I trained my right eye to go like. It took a lot of exercise, a lot of work. Lot of muscle relaxers, but I got it down. Oh, that's good. And that was pretty cell phone when you couldn't fake like you were doing something else. Right. Good work. That's very impressive. You trained it back and everything. I did. Now I can't do it anymore. Or else I show you guys. I didn't know where I was. I got so sidetracked by north Lake mall. Oh, and the gold mine was my arcade at the mall. Sure, wonderful. You could get like 20 tokens for a dollar on a Wednesday, and now games cost like a dollar 50 to play one game. Yeah. Progress. So what else did they head back in those days? You made a list, chess king, of course, Mary go around, I mentioned, can tempo casuals, ladies? Deb. I knew this section was all into that. County seat? Remember county seat? Oh, that's a deep cut. Or you could go get Jean. It was like when the gap used to be like sweatshirts and blue jeans before they rebranded. Right, sure. They should go back to that. Mary go round, Kim what music, what else? Oh, well, bookstores, you could just say bookstore, and that would be novel. Be Dalton, Walden books. Walden books. I think I consumed every single volume of truly tasteless jokes in those without buying a single one. Man, I remember those. God, those are great. Yeah. Pet doctor, the cruelest, cutest store of all time. Remember the mall pet store? It was like this hamster so cute and then it died like an hour later from neglect. It just shuffled out and put a new one in. There's a trapdoor. Nice. John hodgman would hate this show. Dripping with nostalgia, trippin. He's here in this town. He refused to come because he knew. Or did he? Are you kidding? He'd already be up here. Like, oh, let me take the mic. Nostalgia is toxic. The mall became a prominent fixture in movies of the day. Of course, the Sherman oaks galleria and California. Which is where we are. Yeah, California here. That was the mall in fast times at ridgemont high, one of the great mall movies. And full mall movie, but don't sell it short. It also appeared prominently in commando. Where Arnold Schwarzenegger beats up like a ton of guys at the mall. Yeah? Same mall. Night of the comet you mentioned, anyone? I remember seeing that as a kid and thinking, 'cause you know, if you haven't seen the movie, this comment comes and destroys like everyone at night. Yeah. And everyone has these comet parties to watch the comet, but it kills everybody except for the two really hot teenage girls that didn't watch the comet. And then a few other people. And what do they do? They go to the mall. It's shop because it's abandoned. And I remember being a kid and thinking that would be the dopest thing ever. Sure. To just go in an empty mall and it's all yours. Or to live at restoration hardware or something. I would have run in the Spencer gifts into that section. Yeah. Oh my God. Oh my God. Just like pass out from pleasure. That's what a way to do and you missed your chance. You could be walking around the Castro right. And I look out and there's this creepy guy with a wandering eye, staring at. And who knew? Who knew? What else? The Blues Brothers had a very famous mall scene. Yeah, they went through the Dixie square mall. Sorry, the decius square mall. Where they were like, this place has got everything. And maybe one of the most famous mall parking lots of all time, the twin pines mall from Back to the Future, which was actually the puente hills mall heels. Possibly appropriate, maybe. Which I don't even know where that is. I mean, it's in LA, obviously, but I'm not sure. It's in city of industry. They don't even know where the name for a town, everybody. No. It's outside of LA. I looked it up. And of course, mallrats, which we don't need to talk about too much, because that was a little, really? That was Kevin Smith. He was a really high voice. You can't leave out Moon Unit Zappa, dude. Oh, well, yeah, of course. Valley girl. Yeah, she had a hit single valley girl. And her father, Frank Zappa, hated the valley girls, right? And while it kind of blew up in his face, when he released a song with his daughter about how stupid valley girls were, that it actually popularized valley girls. It made him cool in America. Yeah. So eat that, Frank Sarah. He's passed. That's fine. Eat that in musical heaven. So malls started to really grow not only in popularity, but in size to the point as Josh says of sheer absurdity in Canada because they have malls too. I should say, yeah, yeah. Do we have some Canadians here? And yet no one from Toledo. The west Edmonton mall, really? All right. Open and no one from Toledo. Anyone from Elm Street and Edmonton? Yeah, that's what I thought.

All right. I'm glad you thought of that. Yeah. You guys good to see how the sausage. So as I was saying, before the break. I don't know if you can see it there, but this is crumpled up in very hard to read because Josh sent a new version, and the hotel room I said, great. I printed it out and I crumpled up the wrong one. And threw it away and right before I came, I was searching through the trash and here it is. It's not the bad, actually. So entitled this next section, the golden age of them all. You have to go like this one and see that. It wouldn't be a live show if we didn't have a golden age of skyjacking, golden age of PR, golden age of grave robbing, and now the golden age of them all. Right. I was about to say golden age of Rodney dangerfield, but it was all golden age. For that guy. So the mall had its golden age between 1956 and 2005. 1500 miles or America were built. Possibly 2000, possibly 3000. What? No one knows. They just stopped counting pretty much. They're like, forget it. We'll just say 7000, who cares? Million, a million miles were built between that time. In the U.S. so there's a woman named Lisa charon who wrote a book called America at the mall because every book has to have a colon. If you're smart, the cultural role of retail utopia, and she said for the children of 70s, 80s and 90s, the shopping mall was the place to be a space where we defined as our own, the mall taught us how to fit in, how to be a consumer ultimately, how to be an American. So who, I mean, you don't have to say how old you are, but if you grew up in the 70s and the 80s, you know that the mall, and then to the 90s, of course, sure. The shopping mall was like, it's different than it is today. Like families used to go to the mall for the day. You'd pick a Saturday and you'd all pile in the car, you'd go to the mall, you maybe go see a movie, the kids would go to the arcade. Mom and dad would do some shopping. And you would literally spend like 6 and 8 hours as a family outing at a mall. Right. Pretty unbelievable to think about that. Now you gather around the laptop and go on to Amazon.com. Yeah, and I'll sit around and stare at your phones and ignore each other. You say, yes, I would like to get into fermenting pickles. I could use some fermentation weights. Thanks for suggesting that, Amazon. Interesting. You just changed my life. But it was a big deal. You would spend family day at the mall. And in the 80s, it was a part of America as anything else. There were restaurants in the food court at the mall that didn't exist outside of the mall. They were like born in the mall, like cinnabon. Someone gasp. That's it. We can go home now. That was an audible. Wherever working toward is aghast from somebody. Orange Julius, that was another one. The panda express was only in malls for a long time. And apparently borrow everyone knows of sbarro, right? It was so tied to malls that when sbarro filed for bankruptcy in 2014, they cited unprecedented decline in mall traffic in their filing. There's like no one likes them all anymore. We're borrow we're dead. Word. Chick-fil-A too. You guys don't have Chick-fil-A here, do you? Oh, you do? Me too? Well, this is long before we knew they hate chicken. This is back when everyone just thought it was delicious and juicy and crispy. Not filled with homophobia. Yeah. But no, no. They've since walked it back. So it's all fine. Yeah. We're just not open on Sundays. Chick-fil-A would only be in the mall. I think there was one original Chick-fil-A store in Georgia. I think that's where it was born. But aside from that, it was only in the mall. And I remember going to the mall. Remember when they may still do this, I don't go to malls. There's a shop on Amazon.com. Miles used to have events like a world record Sunday ice cream sundae or something to get people there. I went to Chick-fil-A when I was about ten at north Lake mall, which was my mall. Because they had the world's largest cup of lemonade. On a Saturday afternoon, my mom took me, and I drank from that spigot along with thousands of other people. And it was not even that impressive. I thought it was giant, but now that I'm adult, it was probably like 8 feet high. Yeah, right. No, it was 64 ounces, but they were just the first ones to try. So whatever they did was the world's biggest cup of lemonade. That was a mall event that I went to. What was your mall? I had two because we moved a very formative time in my life. I

"Vote wrote a note on January iPhone sales this week, though, very little of it made sense to me. Please allow me to read you one part. On a global basis, we estimate iPhone sells through in January was down about 11% year over year, 20.9 million. 700 basis points improvement from the 18% year on year decline in December, 22.6 million. Down 8% month over month following extensive supply chain disruptions late last year. If we extrapolate January 23 sell through, we estimate March 23 quarter sell through is tracking at about 52 million units in line with our sell in estimate. There were three more paragraphs that were even less intelligible, so you tell me. There was fellow Palmer duets Apple three that posted the note, I know I don't know everything, but I can usually pretty much follow notes like these. That was happy to read Elmer de witt's addendum, which said, must confess, I got lost in the details. Glad it wasn't just me. Here are two quotes that did make sense. iPhone strength in China and U.S. offset by weakness in Europe and while China sell through with solid, iPhone sell through improvement in the U.S., was more muted. He's not reaching for the parachute, though. Boat has a buy rating on Apple shares. He has said the UBS price target on this shares at 180 bucks. A somewhat easier to understand note comes our way from Jefferies analyst Kyle mcnealy. He thinks iPhone demand is better than the rest of Wall Street thinks based on the Internet. Apple three posted this one as well. It's got mcnealy saying web traffic to iPhone pages for the month of January at wireless carrier aside and apple dot com was up 2% month over month and down 23% month over month, respectively. Wireless carriers are the bigger channel. So overall, it's tracking ahead of normal historical seasonality down 30% quarter on quarter and street iPhone unit expectations. Down 21%. That plus the fact that people are going for the pro phones more than the others where the current iPhone line that's concerned have him expecting a bit of strength for the March quarter. Now I am not saying he's wrong. But hanging your hopes, your hat or anything else on web traffic feels tenuous, but these are the times in which we live. Quoting his note again, we see Paige traffic tracking ahead of expectations as a positive sign that Apple isn't seeing as much macro pressure as anticipated. At least through January. Nonetheless, we're keeping our estimates unchanged given we're still early in the quarter and any deterioration through March could derail the positivity. Shake it off tank, shake it off. Mister mcneely has a buy rating on Apple shares. He has said Jeffrey's price target on the shares at 195 bucks. While the world ponders the diversification of apple's supply chain, an interesting assertion from Apple and cider, that site sites data from the Indian technology site Inc 24 saying since the start of India's production linked incentive program in August of 2021, Apple has become the largest single job creator in the nation's electronic sector with 100,000 new positions. The site breaks it down to about 62,000 folks working for Apple contract manufacturers, Foxconn, pegatron, and wistron, the other roughly 40,000 work for component suppliers, such as salt comp. Small numbers compared to China to be sure. But it would be hard to argue that this train isn't picking up steam. Surprising news for a North Carolina Apple store Bloomberg says as the Cupertino company suddenly and unexpectedly closed its northlake mall store in Charlotte, North Carolina, permanently. The problem, a bit too much gunplay, it seems. Citing local news reports, Bloomberg says shots were fired outside of a Macy's at the north Lake mall on Tuesday, while another shooting took place in early February, there were additional shootings reported in December and in 2021. So not a rash decision. There was surprising one. Even to employees. The store actually opened for business Wednesday morning though employees were told that day that the store would be closing for good, effective immediately. It was apparently employees who said the shootings were the issue, Bloomberg says Apple confirmed the closure, but declined to comment further on the reasoning. Now the good news, despite the loss of a store, nobody is losing their job. The piece says Apple told employees that there will be no layoffs and that stop at the north Lake mall site would be transferred to the nearby South Park location in Charlotte or rolls working at the company's online store. Plans were already underway for a new store in Charlotte next year. Even before this week's closure, the new store was meant to replace the north Lake store, according to the report.
