I'd hate to make it look like I'm being uncaring towards other religions today, but really! This is going far too far. Muslims have been in uproar on the CNet site today after someone brought up the similarities between the 5th Ave Apple Store and some 'Ka'ba' in Mecca. Big whoop. Similar architecture. Does that mean I can sue the house next door for looking like mine? Nope. Didn't think so. Muslims are claiming that the 5th Avenue Bar is serving alcholic beverages and is disrespecting there holy beliefs. Yatar-yatar-bloody-schmuk. The only bar I could find in the 5th Ave store last time I went, was the Genius Bar (much to my disgust). All that the Apple Genius Bar serves is douses of knowledge which help you mend your broken iPod Nano. Apple has never sold alcohol in it's stores and probably never will. Drunk people tinkering with expensive equipment? Apple aint diggin' that. Story via CG.
Seriously. If people are getting in a tizz about this, then you wonder what will happen when something offensive actually happens. Hope you guys didn't find this too controversial. At least I won't be set upon by angry Sony fanboys on this post though. Just random peoples who hate me.
