For palaces of glamorous consumption, Apple Stores sometimes play host to the occasional quality cultural moment. Overseas, they're regularly graced by authors and filmmakers. Here in Sydney, the Presets, Wolfmother and even the Wiggles have found space on the George Street's store's stage, before 2011 Sydney Film Festival directors like Joshua Marston started turning up as well. This year, they've teamed up with Aussie design community INfront to put on a series of talks from local creative types who have something interesting to explain to the world at large.

For August, Interacting with the Past: Museums for the Next Generation brings you the Powerhouse Museum's new technologies guru Seb Chan, who is bound to take you to a digital place you hadn't imagined finding culture in before. A star of Sydney's first round of TEDx talks, until recently Chan also edited the electronic music buffet that is Cyclic Defrost, having earlier been at the centre of the early Sydney rave scene. So while its army of discreet cleaners may often make it more polished than your average venue, there can be some unquestionable substance to go with this Apples Store's shine.
