    Yeah. It’s APPLE’S problem that people don’t know how to bathe. :no:

     

    Come off it.




    You totally missed the point that sniffers are installed in all Apple stores, and most probably all other stores, to activate ventilation to counter body odour. It is the ones in this store that are installed too high to work optimally.



    It really helps to read the article first.

    Oh really. The commenter lives near the store, has been there, and can confirm that there is indeed a BO problem.

    How does that sound like an insult to Apple, to you?

    Who did they ask? Some retail person?

     

    The sensors don't detect CO, they detect CO2. It's very common in new HVAC systems for large areas and as correctly stated they control the level of fresh air. It's not for diagnostics, its for energy savings. Otherwise they would have to design the system to continuously bring in fresh air corresponding to a exchange rate of the maximum occupancy, using additional energy to heat or cool the air.

    Cant control everyone that walks into a store and Apple making efforts to make the experience more pleasant is a big win. Not to point fingers but there are some ethnicity's that do not use deodorant and love high tech. I dont recall it ever getting that bad so I can assume the odor sniffers are working!

     

    As for CO if it gets too high then consumers will get tired. Add some oxygen to keep every levels up and that may lead to more spending.

    Yeah. Like that's only thing relevant about Apple.

    No. Of course you're not pointing fingers. Not racist at all.

    WARNING: the following definition is from Google. Do not read if you are concerned about data theft:


     


    rac·ist



    ?r?sist/



    noun



    1. 1.



      a person who believes that a particular race is superior to another.









      synonyms: racial bigot, racialist, xenophobe, chauvinistsupremacist More







    adjective



    1. 1.



      having or showing the belief that a particular race is superior to another.


      "we are investigating complaints about racist abuse at the club"





     

     

    "Racist" would be depicting that one race is superior to another. Mentioning a stereotype and an associated race doesn't necessarily cross that line.

     

    I would, however categorize that comment as "insensitive."

    Did anyone think to check the employee fridge? I remember an incident at one place I worked that still brings shudders to my spine.

    So this is news.

    So what will pundits be writing about Apple next - the drainage system sucks or perhaps someone's dog is littering an Apple's store.

    Carbon monoxide is fatal. CO2 is also but it takes a lot more to kill you...

    A bit inward looking I must say.

    Anything new on the horizon?

    ya... "smells like teenage spirit"...
    Seriously, the Apple stores are not awful, but they are not great either, so they definitely do need the smell detectors in order to effect the removal of odors...

    you know the classic Nirvana song...)
    ( supposedly that song gets it's title from Kurt Cobain remembering the lead drummer of Bikini Kill perfume (Adidas team spirit)...
    before courtney love... the girl that broke his heart, and possibly started the downward spiral of Kurt Cobain)

    Offensive BO is a totally normal smell for Santa Monica.

    Most people in the US and Europe don't bathe every day, so I wouldn't be surprised about such BO...a little civilization classes would help.

    You were commenting on a comment made on the basis of the article, so yes, you still need to read the article first. And more importantly, understand what that comment was about in the first place.
