Big Apple rain showers flood the Fifth Avenue Apple Store
posted by Alan F. / May 08, 2013, 6:19 PM
The flood started at 8am and by 10am, most of the store had been mopped up with the exception of a 40 to 45 foot section which was roped off. Despite the flooding, the store never closed as workers scrambled to cover up the electronics. At one end of the store, a long table with Apple iPads was covered with plastic to protect the slates from getting ruined.
One employee at the store complained that the repairs made last year to the store's roof were done incorrectly and the flooding on Wednesday was the direct result of that construction.

I see a lawsuit on the horizon towards the repair company, this is, if not the biggest flagship store Apple has.

Sony would be opening a frustrating can of worms with that ad. Have you ever tried to use a capacitive touchscreen while it's wet? People would be complaining to Sony that they can't use their phone in the water if it's not perfectly dry and that their ad is misleading.

Gives liQuid damage a whole new meaning!! I just have two questions: 1. Will Apple Care cover the damage? 2. Why didn't they use Krazy Glue to assemble the glass cube; you know, like how they glue their phones together before they ship them out to unsuspecting customers? 3. And, why didn't the Holy ghost of Steve Jobs protect his Apple-Holy ground? 4. Can the 15 people in the store at the time file a class-action lawsuit for extreme emotional distress? 5. What about Lindsay Lohan, will she have to surrender her iPhone while in rehab'?
