    Apple store detains teens for installing iPhone game | The Register

    LOL teens upload Raging Thunder to a demo iPhone at a Palo Alto apple store.

    How can they download over the air when the phone is not jailbroken?

    They did jailbreak it
    Yes, its deserved though, its their stuff you can't just do that, but police is to extreme, i would have just told them that i understand why they do that, but you can't do that to our iPhones, you could get in trouble.

    The store manager had no right to detain them after they had already left the store. I think that he exaggerated by calling the police, too. I mean, it's just Total read/write access to the system, free VoIP, Games, Unlocking, Utilities, TV, Themes, etc. (I'm dead serious. There is no sarcasm in there)

    But seriously, all that was needed to put the phone back in order was a 10-minute restore. It's not like if they blew up the phone modding it... Hmm... I gotta go add that to my idea list.

    But after they left the store, a manager bolted out and demanded the teens return.
    Excuse me Mr. Manager but who the hell are you to demand things from me? Are you my mother? Father? Boss? God? No, you're not. Get out of my face, before I splatter yours.
    The manager then called the police
    Spend less time calling the police and more time throwing out suggestions to your superiors on how to make the boring stock iPhone (that you employees love so much) worthwhile.
    I would definitely charge him with wasting police time.
    "Is it broken?"
    "No."
    "Is it stolen?"
    "No, it's just that there's one extra icon on the SpringBoard now; it doesn't look as nice."

    If I were a cop, I'd empty a bottle of pepper spray down his throat.

    Heard many stories about stupid Apple staff, and this one adds to the list.

    Don't understand why they didn't run. That's like...the smart thing to do when a MANAGER is chasing you. He wasn't even chasing, he just demanded it.

    But I doubt that was his CPU that he downloaded ZiPhone to...

    These are the guys.

    I didn't know that Harry Potter was down with jailbraking, maybe iPhones are banned from Hogwarts.

    dude, no wonder he didn't run ... fat boy like slimer from ghostbusters

    i understand the manager getting annoyed...its the iPhone equivalent to vandalism, the iPhone wasnt their property etc etc...i mean, you wouldnt walk into PC store and start formatting the display models would you? Its like walking into the local supermarket and knocking down the big baked beans display

    that aside though, good for them
