2. Man, the Apple haters are going to be all over this.

3. #2: Then it should make the process of knowing who to weed out of a conversation that much easier; if people are going to make so big of a deal out of a silly issue like this as to discount an entire company because of it... how intelligent, useful (in a conversation) or rational do you think they can really be?

4. There'll be a firmware update soon, but the customers had to have an extended warranty out on their AppleŽ Feet Pro 1.0.

5. Am I the only junky that got confused by those last few lines in the end of the article mentioning a "fix" and something about a water bottle.

6. Turns out Elevator.app was running under Rosetta emulation, since when the original store was designed, which was around March 2005, it was built around a dual PPC G5, and then the Intel transition was unthinkable. They (eventually) replaced the processor for the final release, but didn't have time (or may as well have forgotten to) recomplie Elevator.app to be a Unversal Binary. Of course the man in charge of this is now fired and on the next Cube Store Security Update there will be a point update to Elevator.app, making it a UniBin and considerably faster. It will also automatically serve water when it crashes, so the employees don't have to bother.

7. Is it just me or does that look like Jobs in the pic on the right w/ his back to the camera?
#1 - Nicely done!
#5 - lol. I agree. Although, if the employees were getting a fix off the water, wouldn't they be drinking it instead of lowing it into the elevator? Or, were those trapped in the elevator actually employees? Or, were the employees getting a fix from the lowering of the water?

8. It was probably an issue with the thermal grease.

9. I can't beleive no one mentioned the part were it says "I wonder if this is what happens when you leave the Apple Store without purchasing anything?" because that really made me laugh. <-Me!

10. I was in that elevator a couple of times and I agree that it is pretty crappy, it takes an hour to finally close the door and open it and going up and down also takes forever!

11. #7 part deux
To me it sounded as if the employees wanted to do a fix before the cops showed up. After doing their fix, they hid the water bottles in the elevator by lowering it there.
So to conclude what drugs they were doing my educated guess was crack .... NY favorite. See they made water pipes from the water bottles and the cops whould recognize those bottle ... hence they had to be hid!

13. Actually, there's a legal angle that interests me in this entry, by. It seems Apple has not paid sufficient attention to building functionality in that store. That's something I've wondered about. Emergency exits, flashing lights, sprinkler systems, etc., are 'ugly.' We know that Steve Jobs is an extremist when it comes to anything that is Apple be as elegant as possible. I wonder if there might be problems if there is a greater emergency in an Apple Store requiring quick evacuation of a large number of people.
Elevators get stuck rather often. Still, Apple should have a contract with a repair company that provides 24-hour service and not have to rely on the police.

I believe that this is a very relevant story. If you don't want to read it, then, are you ready for this, you can SKIP IT. Is it really that hard? If you don't like the story, and you think that it's a waste of your time, think about this: you just wasted another 5 mintues posting about a story that you didn't enjoy in the first place.
Where's the logic in that?

15. We visisted the store yesteday 5/26/06 and had to CARRY our 22 month old daughter who was fast asleep up and down. It was worth it though...it was awesome, I wish my daughter could have seen it...

16. #13 glass doesn't catch on fire... therfore eliminating the need for those pesky alarms and sprinklers....

17. No, the glass won't burn.
It'll melt, and no one will be able to get out.
