Today in “What the Hell?” news… an 83 year-old woman is suing Apple for $1 million because she apparently broke her nose by walking into a glass door, which was not “elderly-proof”.
Evelyn Paswall, a former Manhattan fur-company vice president, claims the tech company’s signature glass architecture is a menace to little old ladies after she failed to see the glass door at a Long Island location and smashed her face.
“Apple wants to be cool and modern and have the type of architecture that would appeal to the tech crowd,” said her attorney, Derek T. Smith. “But on the other hand, they have to appreciate the danger that this high-tech modern architecture poses to some people.”
In her suit, she argues that Apple should have put marks on the glass that older people could spot before they come face-to-face with disaster.
Really? It seems that every time I see a story like this, the lawsuits made by the people get dumber and dumber.
