picked up a
bloke after he symbolically chucked a brick through the window of the the
city's Magnificent Mile Apple Store on Tuesday night.
It seemed that that
bloke, who had a few, took offence at one of the "giant iPhone" displays. The
irony of hurling a brick at a bricked product was obviously not lost on
him. Apple marketing people rushed to the scene, but the giant iPhone display
was unharmed, although it was not looking as smug as it did earlier.
Grilly, 61, of Chicago, was arrested and charged of criminal property damage a
copper said. Apple fan bois have already attacked coverage of the story,
claiming that Grilly was clearly influenced to take his stand against Apple by
Microsoft. Chicago police say that Grilly was more likely influenced by a
bottle of something stronger than a rival operating system. So he was sauced up,
but not exactly Open Sauced up.
