Humor The German city of Hamburg will soon be getting one of the biggest Apple Stores in the world. Construction isn't complete yet, and a group of people calling themselves the '.WAV Collective' decided it was time for a practical joke. Posing as construction workers, they planted an interesting logo on the store's facade. In broad daylight. And they videotaped it.

this has nothing to do with some sort of pro ms activism. its a slap in the face for the "i am so damn cool with my ipad and my macbook hanging around in a trendy cafe an doing something with media stuff while wearing my stylo nerd glasses blabla"-culture, wich is very common in hamburg and berlin nowadays (ok, as everywhere else where the "cool" people live)

Wow, thanks for the explanation. Otherwise I would have thought this was an add for a company that actually sold double isolated windows, given the cold winters Hamburg experiences...

Mac users don't feel offended at all, we're laughing at the group who put the sign up since they organized the colors incorrectly.

Real smart group there!

And their shoes don't even match their handbags! How tacky!

You sound bitter. ;)

It's a harmless practical joke, not social warfare. It's something to laugh at; something funny and not loaded down with trendy iconoclasm and social baggage.
