Proposed bollards on Boylston Street.

The Apple Store, 815 Boylston St. goes before the Back Bay Architectural Commission tomorrow for a review of its plans for bollards in the sidewalk out front to ward off the sort of crash that killed one and injured nearly two dozen at the Apple Store in Hingham last year. Read more.

Two Massachusetts residents and a Californian who bought stuff at Apple stores across eastern Massachusetts yesterday sued Apple, alleging they got junk mail when the company figured out their home addresses from the Zip codes they say they were required to hand over at the cash register.

The lawsuit, filed in US District Court in Boston, seeks treble damages for themselves and all the other Massachusetts residents they claim were grievously harmed by the alleged practice.

Whether you’re someone who sits on the couch with the cat or time shifts your entertainment and loads it onto your mobile device, technology has changed our TV watching.

These days - and maybe you already have one - there are Apple TV devices, Roku boxes, Google TV and many more so-called connected TV devices. And these types of technology have opened up the capability for people to enjoy their entertainment.

To that end, as I type this there are five entertainment and tech industry executives sitting in bar stools at the front of a Hill Holliday conference room in downtown Boston. These TV pros have their own opinions about how you should watch TV. Whether you believe them or step into line with their wishes is really up to you.

So who are they and what are they saying? On the panel are: Aaron McNally of Google TV; Anderw Kippen of Boxee; Greg RIvera of Xbox; Chas Smith of Roku; and Tara Maitra of TIVO.

When asked by Hill Holliday’s Mike Proulx, “Who are these devices for?” the panelist responded as follows...

Here are a handful of additional thoughts from today’s TVNext Summit at Hill Holliday in downtown Boston. Specifically, one of the hosts, Mike Proulx asked about the mindset behind using social media tools as an adjunct to TV entertainment. This includes Facebook, Twitter and other tools.

Here’s how the panel responded...

Covering technology events is a breeze, but sometimes - as with today’s #TVNext panel in Boston at Hill Holliday - you sometimes run into a challenge. Today's event is a challenge for me because I've already heard some astonishing facts and it's only 10AM. We now watch TV five hours a day, on average, in America.

Let me paint the picture and then I'll share where that five-hour figure came from.

Yvonne Abraham breaks the news that Apple opened a store on Boylston Street last week and expresses her discomfort on learning that Apple is a for-profit concern and her amazement that, despite that, some people really like its products.

Humble suggestion: This is the sort of thing that would make a more worthy metro column.

Mike the Mad Biologist discovers first hand that that cool, cool minimalism of the new Apple store on Boylston street kinda sucks when it's raining:

... Then there's the elegantly designed minimalist interior which has no carpeting. That means that everyone's umbrella piddles on the floor and leaves puddles everywhere.

So the Apple Store devised a solution: at the door, you have to enclose your umbrella in a plastic bag to prevent umbrella piddling. Of course, this is described as "ensuring your safety." And it's environmentally friendly to boot. So now you're in the store, into which people are tracking dirt and mud--there's no rug to wipe your feet. Minimalist interiors with light gray floors don't look so good with mud (and umbrella piddle). ...

And all that's before you even get to the plastic staircase.

The media were able to tour the new Apple Store on Boylston Street yesterday. Dan Moren with MacUser has some interesting thoughts on what's going to happen to the hollow glass column running down the center of the spiral staircase.

The public grand opening is at 6 PM today. 2,500 limited edition T-shirts are being given away.

Or take the T out to Cambridgeside Galleria.

The Globe has announced that Apple is building a flagship 4 story monster on Boylston in the Back Bay. (goodbye copy-cop) It's just going to make it easier to convert every family member, friend, acquaintance, back-bay-bum to switch. And I won't even have to pay for parking like I do currently at Cambridgeside galleria.
