SF Apple Store security
Apple's flagship San Francisco store, set to open in twelve days on February 28, has bent on taking photos of the store's construction progress. "I had to roust some people a couple of days ago. They wanted pictures, but that's not allowed," one security guard told Wired. Apple has two security guards posted at the store at all times, who have also prohibited construction workers from taking photos. "'I told [a worker] 'I know it's absurd, but that's Apple's mentality, not mine,'' he said. 'Apple acts like it's the Pentagon.'"
