So what are you saying? I'm not sure if you read the article or not but this doesn't sound like a "Yay, Apple makes great products" kind of story. Four people were sent to the hospital because of scalping... That's not good.

Did you not see where I asked "so what are you saying?" I wanted to be clear on what it was you were implying.

So wait, let me get this straight... The original comment was "stupid, brainless people" to which you replied that this happens ONLY for Apple products. Did I misunderstood or did you mean that people who buy Apple are stupid and/or brainless?

Is there like nothing to do in China? They should be building iPads not waiting in line for them.

Why the hell do you need to fall in line and fight with others just to get a tablet? It's a tablet for goodness sake! Will they die if they weren't able to buy one? I bet if you rip off the apple logo from the back, people won't even care if it's already in the market or not. Stupid people! Killing each other for a tablet.

I live in hong kong.
We dont like the 'mainland chinese people' because what they do are like locusts.
Ironically today's 'high end techs' are made by these people

From what I've gathered there was a lot of scalpers trying to buy up the iPads and resell them. The Apple store was trying to prevent scalping and that's where the confrontation happened.

Yeah, that's what I gathered from this article. Sucks that the scalpers were doing that, but it wasn't the job of the Apple employees to do anything about it.

I didn't blame Apple. I blame the store employees who got into the altercation. Apple would probably agree with me that their actions did the opposite of helping the situation.
