Don’t try to use your iPhone inside an Apple store

Abdul Tarbzouni, right before Apple employee asked us to stop taking photos of each other

I am inside the Apple Burlingame store with Maryam and Patrick (we were here to try out and buy some new cases). Abdul Tarbzouni just met me (he’s here to buy a case too). He has an iPhone. He is attending MIT studying computer science. He wanted to take a photo of me. And I wanted to take a photo of him. The problem is that an Apple employee came up to me and said it’s Apple policy that photography isn’t allowed in the store. I gave some lip back and she threatened to kick me out of the store. God, I love Apple sometimes. Spend lots of money. Buy lots of iPhones. Just don’t try to use them inside an Apple store.

  2. Of course stores have a right to set policy, but they should weigh that against the fact that they are pissing off customers with said policy. I just got yelled at by a manager of a 7-11 next to where I work (I am no stranger there; the guy has seen me buy food there for YEARS) because I took a photo of a Homer Simpson sign in front of the store. “Corporate policy” he told me. “No photos.”

    Why it’s corporate policy to annoy loyal customers, I’ll never know.

  5. well I didn’t have that trouble inside the Apple store where I live, I took a shit load pictures of a couple fucking in the store and they were still going strong when the police showed up and then I snapped a photo of the couple fucking with police man standing next to them and one of the officers told me that he wanted my photos from my camera, I told him no way and that he would have to get his own camera and take his own pictures. The couple almost got arrested but the police officers took the female too the storage area of the store for questioning and them and they came back 20 minutes later and the two officers were smiling and told the store manager that they didn’t have any HARD evidence and the couple was fee to go. I just love Apple store you never know what your going to see in there

  7. Robert, perhaps the Apple employee was referring to their policy that YOU (Robert Scoble) aren’t allowed to take photos inside an Apple store.

    Perhaps they know that photos that you take are going to end up on the scobleizer blog. LOL
