    A quick watch of the above video might have you believing that's the site of a Microsoft Store being constructed; actually, it's an Apple Store. Yesterday, in the Jungfernstieg section of Hamburg, Germany, a group going by the name of ".WAV Collective" apparently vandalized the soon-to-be Apple retail location. They casually went up to the building posing as a team of construction workers, cordoned off a work site, and proceeded to screw pre-made panels, forming a Windows logo, to the side of the store's black veil -- all in broad daylight. Looks like the old question of Mac vs. PC just got a bit more confusing over in Europe. Don't believe us? Have a look at the collective's own video recap of the events posted after the break.[/p]

    Maybe Apple planned this to lure in people who like Windows, but then the people they lure realize it's actually a Apple store.

    Yes.
    It's just not news worthy of being posted here.
    This, however, is.
    In my opinion anyway. [​IMG]

    That was some VERY poor planning on their part.

    some people don't know their Internet history, it was Netscape not Mozilla that the giant IE logo was dumped on their HQ, the reason you might of thought it was Mozilla's HQ is because "Mozilla" was the name of Netscape's mascot which at a later date was placed on top of the giant IE as a retaliation to what Macrosloth(big & slow) done.

    Mozilla and IE were a bit friendlier last I checked.
    Three years ago the IE team sent a congratulatory cake to the Firefox team for launching Firefox 3.

    And two years prior, they did the same for Firefox 2.

    I did say it was Internet "history" this was back before IE came with the Windows Operating system (you had to buy it separately like you have to do with Microsoft office) which was in 1997.

    9 out of 10 trolls agree; A Windows Operating System is the preferred operating system for trolling.

    It makes sense for people to troll Apple with a Windows logo.

    Really? I prefer trolling with my Linux PCs.

    Also I'm perplexed as to why someone would register just to post that. Or why on earth this MLP fad hasn't gotten old.
