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.

To the ones who think it's stupid...

To the ones who think it's stupid / not funny, why don't you just admit the truth? A shrine to your god, Steve Jobs was desecrated with something that is not an Apple logo. O noez! The blasphemy! The sacrilege! The heresy! Lord Steve will rain down his vengeance!

Now bow your heads and say the Apple zealot's prayer so that Steve Jobs may forgive your sins:

"Oh Lord Steve Jobs. We are so sorry that we were not there to protect your shrine. Forgive us and have mercy on our souls."

Seriously, Apple zealots... Lighten up... It was a funny prank in good humor.

That does not sound very humorous, either ..

Maybe it was meant like that but it's IMHO not very inspired or funny. Haven't we all seen the Macs with the Win Stickers, the Apple Logo on a Win Box, the Penguin on a Solaris Workstation or 'PlaysForSure' on an iPod? Was it funny the second time? Where you laughing?

Fine if those guys have fun doing that (and I'm sure for them, it was fun). But does everybody - zealot or not - have to laugh now?


Using something like the 'hello kitty' logo or a well known petrol company's logo would have made a refreshing difference (independent if on an Apple or a Microsoft store) ..

If you were so unamused (and not in fanboy rage) you wouldn't have bothered posting. Case closed.

...and it would have been entirely irrelevant: Apple is neither selling kitties nor petroleum.
