No iPhones for YOU! Chinese Lady Tased at Mall for Buying Too Many iPhones
Not entirely clear what happened here. Some non-English speaking woman tried to buy too many iPhones and then threw a tantrum at the mall that got her tazed.
From WCVB here:
A local family says a language barrier may have resulted in police using a Taser on a woman after she tried to buy too many iPhones at a local mall. Police, however, say the incident isn’t that clear cut.
A Boston area family says a language barrier may have resulted in police using a Taser on a woman after she tried to buy too many iPhones at a local mall.
“So my mom says she don’t know why they called the police, because she doesn’t understand what they are talking about,” her 12-year-old daughter Jiao Jay said.
Jay said her mother bought two iPhones last Friday, and was told that was the limit. When she took video of others she claimed were buying more, the store manager asked her to leave.
The confrontation involving the Taser happened when Li went to the store on Monday to pick up two iPhones she ordered online.
“The management of the store asked us to have her removed. The officer approached her, told her she wasn’t welcome in the store, and she refused to leave,” Nashua Police Capt. Bruce Hansen said.
Police say the store had issued a stay-away order against Li. She was told she was under arrest after repeatedly being told to leave the store. She didn’t submit to the arrest. The officer used the Taser on her to get her to submit to the arrest.
Dang, if Ms. Li wanted a bunch of iPhones she should go back to her native country and manufacture them by the hour for nickels of pay. Anyone else think Apple fanbois should get tased when the public thinks they’ve purchased enough Apple Tech?

Phishing by TXT Message, a photo by BelchSpeak on Flickr. I got this phishing text email last night posing as a security alert from FedChoice Bank. A cursory google search for the phone number turns up a forum that reports fraudulent phone numbers. Some have reported calling the number and there is a recording asking…

Those nerds who like the big laptops but don’t mind working with a cruddy file management interface with no blue-ray capability, no home key and no backspace? Yeah, those nerds.

We have potheads in Florida eating faces off of people. Now we have a spice smoker in Indiana taking out cops like a ninja. Remember when drugs would just give you the munchies? Me neither.

Okay, so you have a smart phone that rotates its screen depending on how you hold it. Nice, right? But I bet you don’t understand how the hell it does that. Especially from a chip that is only microns in size. Watch this and be smarter. Thank me.

Otherwise, don’t complain if someone steals your deleted data or outs you as gay on facebook. Here is a post on how to wipe data from an iPhone/iPad. From the…

A video this awesome doesn’t come around often. Two female cops put the TASER beat down on a drugged up liberal bum who is camping illegally in McPherson Square in downtown DC. The dreaded-haired dope smoker is wearing an awesome Commie Red tshirt that declares “He Loves It In The Ass.” And that is exactly…
