I have always been an Android fanboy and I have to admit that my attempts with iOS have been annoying and futile. There has been more than one occasion where I wanted to throw an iPhone across the room shattering it into a million pieces, but like most normal people I found within myself enough restraint to keep myself from going bananas. One French man was not able to find the same restraint.
In the video above the man is seen smashing iPhone screen after iPhone screen with a steel ball. He then proceeds to damage some MacBooks that get in his way. He says in the video that Apple did not reimburse him under some European Law "So this happens". The damage is estimated to be in the tens of thousands of dolllars. The man tried to run away but security was able to catch up with him and hold him until authorities arrived. No doubt he will have to answer for his actions and likely pay for the damages.
I have had my own battles with poor customer service, but there are other ways to deal with it. You could simply vote with your dollar and not support companies that don't treat you well. Bad word of mouth can also do more damage to a company than you would think. Going into a store and destroying things really proves nothing, and your audience is more lookiing at you the freak show than the company which caused you harm.
