"The introduction of the Apple iPhone 4S in Beijing turned ugly Friday morning when Apple failed to open its flagship store and a frustrated crowd responded by pelting the store's gleaming glass walls with eggs."
The police, fearing a problem, asked Apple not to open the store apparently. Well that didn't appear to be the right move as they had about a thousand angry people outside once that was done. Interesting note in the story was that scalpers had bussed in migrant workers, paying them about $16.00 USD to purchase the phone. No wonder they were so angry, no iPhone and no money.
