Burglars rob the Boulder Apple Store smashing a $100 000 glass door, score zero for subtlety

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...

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.

haha Reading comprehension is your friend. He didn't say why buy a glass door for a glass store. He said why buy a $100,000 glass door for your glass store. There is a difference because he could be all for a $99,999 glass door, just not a $100, 000 dollar one. Einstein... lol

Yes, learn how to read....
He never excluded a glass door for an all glass store. He just said why buy a $100, 000 glass door instead of say a $1000 glass door.
Unless you think that $1000 glass doors do not qualify and it has to be $100,000 to qualify...
Yeah, just learn how to read before you reply.

There is a difference between these two sentences.
Why buy a glass door for an all glass store?
Why buy a 100,000 dollar glass door for an all glass store?
Apparently to Darkkjedii both are the same but only one is a contradiction.

I can see that you are not sharp enough to figure it out so I'll just spell it out for you.
If I said the following it would be correct and have no contradictions. Poor word usage maybe and I could cut a lot of words out but it wouldn't be contradictory like you claim.
"Why buy a 100,000 dollar glass door for an all glass store when I can buy a $1000 dollar glass door for my all glass store?"
Which is an interpretation of what he said. If you would use reading comprehension like you were taught in grade school, then you would realize that he was not specifically excluding the use of a glass door. He was just against using a $100,000 glass door, but he never closed the DOOR on using a cheaper or more expensive glass door.
His post was sound. Your accusation that he contradicts himself is not.

hahaha I can see that you are back tracking now. You thought that you were witty with your Einstein remark but it turns out that you just couldn't read. Good times!
Have fun grazing with your iMate!

I asked you to make it a good one, which I see you failed to do. Also I was witty with my Einstein comment buddy, and grazing was wonderful with my imate... You are someone I'm gonna have lots of fun with, you showed me how easy it is to get to you. Love the lecture you gave LMAOOOOO... Stay tuned puppetdroid.

With $100,000, I guess they should have been able to purchase anti theft devices which would have frozen the thieves at the store until the cops came.

$100k glass door? Where would you buy a $100k glass door? Apple are the only ones I can think of who would have the nerve to make and sell a $100k glass door.... Then sell it to one of their own stores....
