The gang simply threw three rocks in the $100, 000 custom glass door, smashed it to pieces, and scored about $64, 000 worth of iPhones, Macs and iPads in the blink of an eye...

I am not saying it is okay for them to break the law, although I do feel there are people who abuse the system. I am just saying it is okay for people to poke fun at it on a message board because no one got hurt. There is a difference and you are definitely a closet Apple fan or being too uptight about comments on a message board.

$100,000 for glass door?? I bet we wouldn't be able to differentiate it with an ordinary one at a glance. Maybe they should have used Gorilla glass instead.

$100k glass door.... As if I needed another reason to not buy Apple products.
No wonder their products are priced so high, to pay for crap like this.

And just to be safe...all apple products for a few months. At least until they get their mapping app working properly...wouldn't want anyone getting hurt or anything. Even the muggings for iphone's have been crazy. It's just not safe to use an iphone anymore.

If they were smart they wouldn't purchase Apple products period. Or now HTC Android products since Apple gets a cut.

Apple products have better resale value than Samsung.

Yes, thanks to the ibots. Not something to be particularly proud about though.

Better resale value because they break easier therfore have tobe repurchased. Samsung builds there phones with quality and last so no one needs to rebuy them. Before you thumb this down think about it it actually makes sense.

I have a G Nexus, and I love it. But, I'll still say GSIII and iphone 5 are both fragile devices.

They have done the consumers a favor. In a civilized world - they would become martyrs.

Who on earth buys a $100,000 glass door for a damn all glass store? This is how Apple spends the money it makes off the iDiots who spend way too much money for their devices. How about a conventional building with regular doors that don't break because 3 rocks were thrown at them.

Think about what u just said. Who buys a glass door for "an all glass store". The idea is all glass...ergo the doors would also be all glass, if not than the store isn't all glass... Einstein.

Maybe he knows that the doors would obviously be glass if the rest of the store is designed around glass. $100,000 for the door(s) sounds excessive considering that there is no stated structural damage. I think he was pointing out how the choice for such an expensive and fragile exterior for their stores just mimics the design of their products, so not only are IOS users paying for fragile phones - they're paying also paying for fragile store-fronts. But really...anyone who makes an all glass front is asking for trouble like this if they aren't located in a mall or something.
