Woman Crashes Through Apple Store Door, Sues

File photo. (Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)(NEW YORK) -- An 83-year-old woman from Queens, New York wants a million dollars from Apple, after she said she recently smashed her face into the transparent door of an Apple Store on Long Island, New York, breaking her nose. According to the New York Post, Evelyn Paswell says Apple's aesthetic is potentially hazardous to the elderly.

The attorney who filed her lawsuit, Derek T. Smith, told the Post, "Apple wants to be cool and modern and have the type of architecture that would appeal to the tech crowd, but on the other hand, they have to appreciate the danger that this high-tech modern architecture poses to some people.” 

Paswell claimed to the Post that she sees well enough to drive.

Pair Steals Huge Haul from Apple Store on Night of Steve Jobs’ Death

Chris Ratcliffe/Bloomberg via Getty Images(LITTLE ROCK, Ark.) -- Little Rock, Ark., police are still searching for two suspects who burglarized a local Apple store, making off with dozens of iPhones and iPads Wednesday night, just hours after Apple co-founder Steve Jobs’ death was announced.

According to the police report, the thieves stole 26 iPhones, 21 iPads, 10 Macbook computers, five iPod touches and one DVD. Two witnesses, Robert Blake and Amy Parker, both 30 and from Little Rock, told police they went to the store at 17711 Chenal Parkway to place flowers in memory of Jobs. They saw an unidentified black male run out of the store and get into a maroon Pontiac, which was driven by a second unidentified black male.

The first suspect was described as being 5-foot-8 and weighing around 140 pounds, who was wearing a white hat, white T-shirt and jeans. The second suspect was wearing a white hat, white shirt and green shorts.

The getaway car was described as a maroon two-door, with gray primer on the front driver’s side bumper, ABC affiliate KATV reported. It had Arkansas plates.

The store just celebrated its grand opening on Aug. 27.

Calls to Apple regarding the incident were not immediately returned.
