A snowblower attacked the Apple store, and other news for January 22
New York City was hit by a big snowstorm yesterday which led to snow trucks, shovels and snowblowers being out in full force. However, that was bad news for the Fifth Avenue Apple store as one of its 15 massive glass panels was shattered by a NYC cleanup crew member operating a snowblower. There's no word yet on what exactly happened, but at least now we know snowblowers and windows don't mix.
