    Is that the brick smashed up on the ground in front of the crack? That's pretty impressive glass if so. I think Rock/Paper/Glass is broken now that they found this hack.

    The Apple Store in Sydney, Australia, apparently has some of the thickest or largest (can't remember which one) sheets of glass in the world.

    EDIT: here we go

    Yes, the Sydney store has tall sheets of glass. No way they're of a special thickness though. They certainly don't appear like it. Besides, glass isn't transparent enough when it's thick, so it'd be too dark. If you go into the Sydney Apple Store, you'd see that the glass is rather thin.

    So we're thinking Apple has better windows than Microsoft?

    Well, Apple's glass windows are more effective against outside threats then Microsoft's Windows operating system, at least :rolleyes:

    clearly he was a fanboy thinking apple should have nothing to do with windows.

    And my first iPhone came from that store :'(

    I bet he was quite mad at glassy style glass panes/windows.
