Samurai sword-wielding man terrorizes 5th Ave Apple Store

Yesterday a mentally disturbed man entered the famous 5th Avenue Apple Store (aka The Cube) brandishing an actual Samurai sword. Thanks to a solid security staff and NYPD response, he never made it past the spiral staircase.

At first I thought one of my clients was running around town doing some well-intentioned promotion for me. (#macsamurai!)

Then I realized that this level of derangement is far beyond what I encounter in my daily rounds 🙂

According to witnesses, the man was also screaming “I just want an iPhone!” Can’t we all sympathize a bit?

In all seriousness, this must have been frightening for all who witnessed it. I’m just glad that no one was injured and that Seppuku was prevented.
