From The Archives: Things I really want to do in an Apple Store, but won’t [2013-08-10]

I find Apple Stores are fun when I’m with friends. Otherwise, I will refuse to go into one. It’s just so tempting to do things to their products when they encourage customers to touch and play around with them.

Here are a few things I’ve always wanted to do in an Apple Store, but would get me in a lot of trouble:

  • Replace the OS X partition with a Windows installation on a Mac
  • Jailbreak an iOS device
  • Hack a Mac
  • Pester the Genius Bar
  • Run xeyes on a Mac. Too bad I can’t do this one anymore; Apple stopped shipping X11.app since OS X Mountain Lion. Oh well, LookAtMe! would have a greater effect, anyway.

I guess I’ll just have to be content with thinking about it…
