Fancy smashing up your local Apple Store? Here's how much it'll cost you

Ever wanted to go bezerk and smash up an Apple Store? Here's how much your iTantrum will cost.

A video went viral recently showing a Frenchman smashing up an Apple Store in Dijon, and the disgruntled chap has now faced justice, according to Le Figaro.

The unidentified man appeared in court and has been fined in excess of €20,000 (approximately a fiver these days) between the damages awarded to Apple and the security guard who confronted him.

He was also slapped with a six-month suspended prison sentence and two year probabation period.

In the video, the man is seen at first calmly browsing the store, before going full apeshit and smashing up various Macs and iPhones.

The reason? Apple apparently refused to replace the man's iPhone. Image what he'd have done if he had a dodgy Note 7...

If you missed it when it was making the rounds, you can watch the video below to get in the mood for tonight's big MacBook launch event.

€20,000 (approximately a fiver these days)

And I thought Brexit had made the value of the pound go down.

One small step for man, one giant step against Iphaggotry. Note that not one male in this store made any attempt to challenge him
