Man Threatens to Shoot iPhone at Genius Bar
October 1st, 2009

A man who brought his malfunctioning iPhone to the Kenwood Towne Center (Ohio) retail store on Thursday displayed a holstered handgun to an employee to underscore his frustration, and was arrested by Cincinnati police for aggravated menacing. Donald Goodrich, 38, did have a concealed weapons permit that allowed him to legally carry the 9mm semi-auto pistol. However, police say when his displayed the gun, the Apple employee had a belief that, “the offender will cause serious physical harm,” a misdemeanor under Ohio law. According to police, Goodrich came into the store and was explaining his iPhone problem to an employee. He told the employee, “I’m so mad, I could pop a 9mm at it,” referring to the iPhone. Goodrich then followed up by saying, “I’ll do it right now! Look!” At that point, police say, Goodrich moved his shirt to reveal his handgun. The employee then took Goodrich over to a Genius to keep him occupied while a manager called police. Police arrested Goodrich without incident, and also charged him with failing to immediately tell arriving police that he was armed, a requirement of his concealed weapon permit.

Geez, I get the temptation every time I turn on a Windows box, but I never ACT on it!

That's why once I turn on the Windows box, I fire up a game and go shoot stuff. Heck, in Counter-Strike: Source, I GET to shoot Dell PCs!

That site has some amusing pages.

From what I have read, OSX is Unix-based -- I'm trying to picture some of the folks in the Mac video on that site operating a computer with a Unix derivative under the hood. Smiley/frowny face popups and Unix just seem incompatible to me.

The "click on the little thingy over there" and "I like to make all my folders that color" users had better be VERY far removed from the power and elegance of Unix, or truly entertaining things could happen. If Apple doesn't idiot-proof the OS, then they had better market it only to power users.

pretty sure putting a round through your phone voids the warranty as well

Unless you know where to find the command line interface and how to use it UNIX is completely transparent for most people. If you know UNIX though the power is there

go to Spotlight
Type Terminal
hit Enter.

Or, alternatively, Applications-->Utilities-->Terminal

Now everybody can find the command line on OS X :)

Of course knowing what to do with it is a different matter. Be very very careful with the command "rm"

It's Unix. Be very careful with whatever you type. The computer will do exactly what you tell it to. It doesn't care whether or not you understand what you just told it to do, or believe you told it to do something different.
