Four teens were detained at the Palo Alto Apple Store after one of them jailbroke an iPhone and installed the racing game, Raging Thunder.
One of the boys was showing off the capabilities of the iPhone and when asked by several Apple Store employees, including the manager, if they needed help, they replied that they were, "playing around with the iPhone."
A few moments after leaving the store, the manager ran out and ordered the boys back into the store. The manager lectured the boys on the dangers of hacking the iPhone, took their photos, and told the boys all Apple stores would receive copies of the photo, "so they'd be on the lookout for us," according to one of the boys.
An Apple spokesman denied the boys account and told the Palo Alto Daily, "They were not banned from that store or any other store." Good news considering one of them worked at the Apple Store during the holiday season.
Little did we know how dangerous iPhone hacking was. In the future, we insist that all iPhones hacks be performed with full haz-mat suits and at least two spotters ready to jump in at a moments notice. Let's all be safe out there.
