Geez, the French are even sophisticated while performing wanton acts of destruction. The Verge reports a young man was caught on video calmly and methodically wrecking up an Apple Store in France over a refund disagreement. The man used a steel ball—apparently the kind used in a French lawn game—to break at least 10 iPhones and a MacBook Air, one at a time, before being arrested outside the store. “Apple is a company that violated European consumers' rights," the Daily Dot quotes the man as saying in French during his iPhone smashing. "They refused to reimburse me. I told them: 'Give me my money back.' They said no. So you know what's happening? This is happening!" (More Apple Store stories.)
