AT&T's new retail stores are taken straight from Apple's playbook

AT&T’s Apple-like retail approach isn’t unique. Samsung, T-Mobile, Microsoft and even Best Buy have all introduced store designs that various observers have described as overtly Apple-esque. 

Why wouldn’t you when the playbook lead to the most successful retail operation on the planet. It shows a clear lack of innovation on AT&T and the other copycats’ part, but a testament to Steve Jobs and Ron Johnson’s vision and execution.
