Good choice to translate it. "Molla" is a sweet little word all Albanians love. I think it's a good marketing move. Heck, we already know the fruit-brand works well in english.

It is good for taxes as well. If the name is in a language other then Albanian you pay more.

actually, peeps, this is most likely NOT a legitimate apple store..sorry for disappointing all you hopefuls.
Haha, love the translation. Molla sounds better to me rather than Apple.

Great to see Apple in Albania. Looking forward to when McDonald's arrives, NOT.

Why we cann't be happy that we have smth new and nice in our city but we have to take care if is leggitime Apple store or no. I think you have to be more interested in the products because those i am sure that are not produced in Albania or assembled in Allbania.

in fact, peeps, it is a legitimate Apple store. you can get all manner of Mac computers, iPods, iPhones, iTouch and all the other gadgets to go with it and, thankfully, you can get your Mac products serviced there, as I had to do with my Macbook. it ain't cheap, but it's real.

Miss Globe 2007

On Saturday, we were at the Rogner meeting with an expat friend who was leaving Tirana. It was breakfast time, and as our friend was finishing his tea the breakfast room started to fill up with over-dressed (or under-dressed) young women wearing blue sashes. These were the contestants for the Miss Globe 2007 beauty pageant being held in Tirana tonight at the Palace of Congresses. High heel boots and mini-skirts - or in a couple of cases micro-skirts, or possibly just belts - have never struck me as obvious breakfast attire, but the girls seemed happy enough tottering and wobbling around with their tea and toast. I'm not sure why they were wearing their sashes - perhaps in case they forgot which country they came from. As we were leaving they were boarding a large coach which I had seen a number of times around the city in the last few days for their next trip. I'm not sure how some of them made it up the steps, or how they managed to sit down, but perhaps these are the ki

Dy Rame Per Tirane

I was watching Top Channel last night, first the news, then Fiks Fare. According to them Tirana's citizens now have a choice not only between Rama and Olldashi, but also between Rama and Rama. A minor right-wing faction, Parti 'Balli Kombetar' , submitted papers to the election authorities registering their candidate, Akile Rama. The people on Fiks Fare got hold of the papers and sent a reporter and camera team to the address listed for Mr A Rama. After much ringing of the bell the gate was reluctantly opened by a middle-aged woman who refused to speak to the reporter and tried to close the gate on her. Back in the studio Saimiri and Doctori - the two presenters of Fiks Fare - revealed that Mr Akile Rama was 73 years old, in hospital, and did not know he was now a candidate for mayor. They also compared two documents - the papers submitted on his behalf, and a genuine document he had signed. The signatures were not even remotely similar. There was an interview with the lea

Albania in the News

Le Monde Diplomatique has been musing in its very French way about The Dream of a Greater Albania . The reliably vitriolic AA Gill is reliably vitriolic about Albania in the Sunday Times . Sensitive Albanians might want to give this one a miss. The Guardian carries an obituary of Gramoz Pashko.
