Next thing we know the apple stores will utilize bullet proof glass


Not exactly bullet proof, but take a look at that photo. The pane may have been shattered, but it's still essentially intact and holding its shape. There was no glass raining down on the street after it got hit by a bullet. That's some strong glass there to absorb that much force. People talk about those huge glass storefronts being dangerous, but clearly they're not.

I'm glad no one was hurt.

Perhaps now is a good time to introduce iVest, an innovative approach to bulletproof clothing.

I see what you did there...Separate but equal? ;)

Frankly I thought the discussion was just getting good.

At least the glass didn't break.

Perhaps this might foreshadow an imminent redesign of Apple retail outlets?


No dude, this is an isolated incident, and redesigning all Apple retail stores would be ridiculous because of this one incident.
