    I'll get my 8X, walk in there, and say: "Hey, MFers.. Convince me why your iTrash Is better!" (Betting they will say "IT JUST WORKS"), then pull my old iPhone out if my pocket, throw it on the ground, and leave. 😉

    Gotta love apple stores they are a point of reference for apple haters worldwide. You can go too far though.. A friend of mine walked round a local apple store making sheep noises. He was removed by force in short order.

    I went into the Apple store in the Mall of America and called a friend of mine while "walking around shopping" and when he asked where I was as loud as I could (without screaming) I told him "Just pacing around ****'s waiting room."

    It got some looks from the staff. :D

    I'd rather not do that myself. I am hoping to get a job in an Apple Store... Despite being a Microsoft fan! Ha

    Why would anyone want to make an a** of themselves by doing something like that? Oh, the maturity! -_-

    Here's an idea - how about just enjoying your 8X and letting the Apple fans enjoy their iPhones? Also, some people actually like both platforms. I just went WP8 with my Lumia 810, but I still use my iPhone 4 as an iPod touch. Absolutely nothing wrong with it.

    When you're trying to get with a TRUE hardcore Apple fan girl you can't pull stuff like this. Even then I know a lot of Apple fans so I'll just leave them to use the device.

    I say take the high road and don't do it. Everyone is entitled to their choices. Besides, I bet you'd be able to sell that iPhone for a good amount!

    What did you tell him? "Just pacing around God's waiting room"??? HUH??????? You probably got looks because it made no sense at all.

    There's nothing wrong about wishful, fantasizing thinking. That's what's the internet and discussion forums are for!

    If you've NEVER dealt with a SUPER fanatical Apple fanboi, consider yourself lucky. Some of the stuff they pull is outright NUTS.

    Personally, I like going to the Apple store and messing with them. Nothing outrageous, just subtle things. Like going in and setting the default web page on all display units to Ubuntu. Or play the clip of Steve Jobs admitting that they outright copy everyone and looping it on other systems.

    One day I was caught by another customer, and he just laughed and laughed at what I was doing and said "That's awesome.". Then he got into it also, but he went to the genius bar and really messed with their minds. He led them down a "garden path" of issues (all true) with a somewhat raised voice (just enough so people around him heard him). He really stumped the "Genius". Several people overheard everything and were waiting for an answer. The "Genius" finally had to admit that they couldn't "do" all that, which the guy replied "Huh.. Really, because my Windows machine can do all that." I couldn't contain myself and I lost it. I had to run out of the store laughing so hard my sides ached.
