Aren't we always someone else's fool?

Gorilla Glass isn't designed to stop cars... or they'd do glass luxury cars :p

Not to bright a statement you posted.

No, each Apple genius should be issued their own car in store for protection, and each customer will drive their own in store.

Making jokes when the material doesn't lend to it is quite foolish. Yourself and many on here have made funny jokes in the past but this thread was lacking.

obviously, the solution would be for the driver to sue apple in court, claiming that because of the glass facade, he didn't know the building actually existed. thus making millions of dollars profit, while forcing apple to put up a brick & mortar facade.

So a driver crashed windows... nothing new here.

Why don't Apple place bollards outside their store fronts?

Why don't drivers stay off the sidewalk?

Apple doesn't want bollards. No reason why they should need them.

Maybe it was Jake & Elwood.  And they were on a mission from God?

That's probably a Google driverless car they were experimenting with. That would be funny if it was. It's a shame someone got hurt and the apple store was hit. But I'm sure the driver was either drunk or just wanted their iMac, iPhone and iPad a little too much.

I wonder what would happen if. They started selling iPads and iPhones in drive througha.

Dang, looks pretty messy. I wonder how much the crash cost them in damage.

Ever hear of Bluetooth?  

 

Odds are the person was simply old and senile...

You're not off at all.

"Police say an elderly man lost control of the car as he accelerated from the street on to a large plaza area before entering the store. He apparently was not hurt."
