Step away from the iPhone.


Today in the “what were they thinking” news category, a woman was tasered outside an Apple store in Nashua, New Hampshire after trying to buy more iPhones than the Apple store allows.

Store policy allows for a maximum of two phones per customer – the woman, Xiaojie Li, allegedly bought two iPhones a few days earlier before returning to the store to buy more for family members. Staff at the Apple store asked her to leave, and when she refused the police were called in. When she resisted arrest, the police decided that the best thing to do would be to electrocute the living daylights out of her and drop her to the ground.

Cell-phone footage of the event has emerged, and Li’s daughter told a local TV station that her mother doesn’t speak English, so was not able to understand what the store employees or the police were trying to tell her.

    Shame on you APPLE !!! Is this how you treat loyal customers?! What’s wrong with buying more than 2 sets if a relative or friend who might be busy or away and unable to buy one asks her to get it for them? What a disgrace.

    I hope that loyal Apple customers walk away from Apple to Android peace of mind… at lease you are not facing this kind of stupid limitations plus you get more technology from Samsung Galaxy S3 (or from others) for less money.
    Get out of Apple’s box guys … think seriously about it. They are treating you as slaves.
