As I impatiently await for the UPS guy to deliver my shiny new iPhone 7 Plus, a horrifying video landed in my news feed.
9to5Mac has the scoop:
French media has posted multiple videos of a man in an Apple Store in Dijon, France, smashing tens of thousands of dollars worth of iPhones and Macs. He removed display products from their stands, placed them flat on the tables and then smashed them with a heavy steel ball used for the popular French game of Boules.
Most of the products he smashed were iPhones, but he also smashed at least one MacBook and multiple iMacs, according to iPhonote. The videos were tweeted by @quentin_IOS.
The man can be heard shouting about his consumer rights. Some reports say that he claims Apple refused to honor the EU requirement to provide warranty cover for two years after purchase.
Luckily, no one was hurt during the technophobic tantrum and mall security staff stopped the French stereotype before he could destroy all the precious Apple devices. Considering how many smartphones he smashed, the iPhone I’ll receive this afternoon just shot up in value.Published in
