    There should've been some crowd control in place. Either police or security people. Whenever you have big crowds like this it's inevitable.

    I'm not surprised at all, scalping is a huge source if revenue for some.

    True, scalpers are also in the mix, but most are just regular folks wanting an iPhone or iPad. Apple feeds on this public frenzy and will continue their marketing tricks and games..., but I wonder for how long.

    Some people are like that.

    I remember the woman that punched the window on a fast food because they did not have nuggets. And the guy that broke a phone store with his car due to complains on service.

    This is what happens when you embrace capitalism and have an emerging middle class with disposable income. Apple must be drooling over the Chinese market.

    Apple should consider upping security and giving them guns then put up a sign saying there is no tolerance for disobedience. Shoot on site.

    You're confusing Apple with the Chinese government. :rolleyes:
    It's not surprising that the Fox News story was void of any useful details.
    Seriously, scalpers need to kill themselves.

    Sorry posted the wrong link.

    This is the one of the woman breaking the glass. This happened in Ohio.

    Also corrected the link in my post.

    this one is more hilarious than the one I posted by error.

    Isn't capitalism needed to stimulate the economy?

    What's wrong with people who go to these fast food joints? Its kinda spooky now going to those places. I guess it's educated and civilized to stay home and prepare your own healthy meals :)

    I posted this a while ago in the iPad forum.
    Apparantly it was started by an employee hitting+pushing those who were suspected of cutting

    Apple employees should have cattle prods because anyone who would stand in line for any product need to be zapped. Reminds me of one Futurama show when they mocked apple and sold the eye phone, and all the fools had to rush to get one.

    This had me laughing most of the day yesterday!

    I cannot believe this kind of behavior. But I should not be too surprise. I witnessed something like this personally. I was at a McDonalds in South Florida around 9pm a few months ago and this group of African American girls came in and started badgering the girl at the McDonalds counter, just because they wanted ketchup and the restaurant was out of it. The employee got so annoyed that she threw a soft drink at the customer. All the girls became irate and started throwing food all over the place, causing a huge violent brawl. One girl swung a punch at the employee and the others made sure they trashed the place, shouting obscenities. The manager came out of the back office and tried to break the fight. Cops came and all. I vowed at that time not to go to McDonalds in that area or late at night.

    I find this one I posted earlier worst. The woman punches the employee and then takes some objects and breaks the drivethrough simply because they don't have nuggets.:confused: BTW this was in a McDonald's too.

    What are people thinking.
