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.
