We’ve seen plenty of stories about the clever ways sticky-fingered Apple enthusiasts have managed to swipe iPhones, and this is not one of them. We never thought anyone would be stupid enough to actually try to cut an iPhone handset from its connecting cable at a store, but this man in Shifang, Sichaun province has proven us wrong.
Surveillance footage shows the man wandering around the outlet and checking out the phone on several occasions before finally mustering up the courage to whip out a pair of scissors and liberate it from its display table. Of course, he was caught in a matter of 0.5 seconds by the two store employees who were standing literally two feet away on either side of him. Oh well.
